Hey friends, I got this message by Bishop T. D. Jakes by email. This has since blessed many. I thought I should share it with all. Here it is. Its titled, “Let it go

There are people who can walk away from you. And hear me when I tell you this! When people can walk away from you, let them walk.

I don’t want you to try to talk another person into staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you, staying attached to you. I mean hang up the phone.

When people can walk away from you let them walk. Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left. The Bible said that, ‘they came out from us that it might be made manifest that they were not for us.

For had they been of us, no doubt they would have continued with us.’ [1 John 2:19]
People leave you because they are not joined to you. And if they are not
joined to you, you can’t make them stay. Let them go. And it doesn’t mean
that they are bad people, it just means that their part in the story is
over. And you’ve got to know when people’s part in your story is over so
that you don’t keep trying to raise the dead. You’ve got to know when it’s

You’ve got to know when it’s over. Let me tell you something. I’ve got the
gift of good-bye. It’s the tenth spiritual gift, I believe in good-bye.
It’s not that I’m hateful, it’s that I’m faithful, and I know whatever God
means for me to have He’ll give it to me. And if it takes too much sweat I
don’t need it. Stop begging people to stay. Let them go!
If you are holding on to something that doesn’t belong to you and was
never intended for your life, then you need to LET IT GO!

If you are holding on to past hurts and pains …LET IT GO!
If someone can’t treat you right, love you back, and see your worth…LET IT GO!
If someone has angered you … LET IT GO!
If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and revenge. LET IT GO!
If you are involved in a wrong relationship or addiction … LET IT GO!
If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets your needs or talents… LET IT GO!

If you have a bad attitude…LET IT GO!
If you keep judging others to make yourself feel better… LET IT GO!
If you’re stuck in the past and God is trying to take you to a new level in

If you are struggling with the healing of a broken relationship…LET IT
If you keep trying to help someone who won’t even try to help
themselves…LET IT GO!
If you’re feeling depressed and stressed…. LET IT GO!

If there is a particular situation that you are so used to handling
yourself and God is saying, “take your hands off of it,” then you need to…

Let the past be the past. Forget the former things. GOD is doing a new
thing! LET IT GO!

Get right or get left, think about it, and then LET IT GO!
“The Battle is the Lord’s!”
