Let It GO!

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but [this] one thing [I do], forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,: Philippians 3:13

In 2009, it is so important that I no longer hold on to issues of the past (issues, drama, lies and disappointment.) 2008 and beyond has been very instrumental to my development and growth, yet it is time for me to move on...

I have learned that every experience is for my good and in knowing this I have become free to be me. This is only because I KNOW WHO I AM. I am true to me. This does not mean that I am better than anyone else it means that I am using wisdom, discernment, knowledge, understanding and instruction as tools to guide me.

Letting Go means that although there haven been past hurts, they cannot be the dictator of my future. What did kill me has made me stronger.

Letting Go doesn't mean totally forgetting but completely forgiving for my benefit and my relationships in the future. I cannot make your issues, my issues and if it happened, it should be a catalyst for change.

Letting Go means finding other avenues for my personal expression and deliverance. i.e. my blog

Letting Go means that walking alone is sometimes necessary to really know who I am. Sometimes I have to be alone to know that I am not alone. I have to hear my own voice and that's not such a bad thing.

Letting Go means no re-hashing the past, it happened learn from it, use it for positive fuel, not negative energy. What good comes from re-living the hurt? I have found that when I truly got over it, I did forget a lot of the details.

Letting Go means finding the good in each situation that is working together to make me all that God intends for me to be. Yes, I have been disappointed but from that disappointment, I have become better not bitter.

Letting Go means releasing others from their pasts, their faults and looking at them with new eyes and allowing them to grow as I have grown. Although I still have to say "FOR REAL!?, I have come to realize that "But for the Grace of God, there go I".

Letting Go is letting God take control of things that I cannot change.

I am not forgetting everything that has happened to me because it has made me grow stronger and wiser but I am forgiving all of it and LETTING IT GO!

See ya in the '09!

I can't wait until I get to that place of complete forgiveness. Reading your blog has encouraged me that God is faithful and I can get there!
