What are you still holding on to that you haven’t been able to give yourself permission to let go of?
Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NIV) reminds us that, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” That includes a time to tear down, to give up, and to throw away…RELATIONSHIPS, JOBS, CLOTHES, HABITS. If it not longer serves you RELEASE it so you can attract that which YOU see
When we decide that we are going to give ourselves permission to let go, that’s when we can actually enjoy life and all that comes our way. We can start being more accepting of things, of people, and of challenges, we are then able to realize that though sometimes things are not going exactly our way, it’s OK. Life is not meant to be perfect and nor are we.
Letting go is like a mental, emotional, and spiritual delete button. It doesn’t change what happened, but it removes that event’s power to continue hurting you .It’s natural for you to fear the unknown, and the future falls into that category; none of us can predict what’s to come. But what we can control is our mind-set. Don’t hold yourself back because you’re afraid or because you’ve been hurt. Instead, acknowledge your fear, accept it, and walk through it with confidence.. Until you make peace with your difficult memories, that pain will continue to bleed into your current and future experiences.
Pray Today, I ask for and open myself to receive the strength, courage, and compassion required to forgive myself. I forgive myself for all perceived sins, faults, mistakes, and failings. I forgive myself for every thought, belief, behavior, perception, and emotion that I have told myself is bad, wrong, unjust, unloving, and displeasing to You, God. I forgive myself for every hurt, judgment, condemnation, unkind or unloving thought, belief, and perception I have held about or against myself. I forgive myself for any behaviors, habits, or actions motivated by unforgiveness, the unwillingness to forgive myself. I forgive myself with compassion and love. I ask for, accept, and claim God’s forgiveness. Today, believing and knowing that because I have asked, I have received. I am so grateful.- Vanzant
I let it be!
