Christians, it is time to live life, love yourself and be happy. You know often times we as Christians hold on far too long. Whether it be holding on to lopsided friendships or holding on to unrequited love, we need to know when to let go. Believe it or not, there is joy in letting go. There is also peace in letting go. I have experienced healing in letting go. My experience in letting go of the things and people that do not want to be a part of my life has actually been cathartic.
Once you can acknowledge that a relationship is bringing no added value to your life and is instead detracting from it, you can then begin your process of letting go. It may not be easy for you to face the facts of the relationship but it is necessary. You know in Philippians 3:13-14 it states: “Brothers, I do not consider myself to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and reaching forward to what is ahead, I pursue as my goal the prize promised by God’s heavenly call in Christ Jesus”, or as Job 17:9 states: “The righteous shall move onward and forward; those with pure hearts shall become stronger and stronger.”
So you see, letting go positions you to move forward and grow stronger. It is crucial for your happiness and joy. So I admonish you to let go of those people and things with enthusiasm because there is JOY on the other side of this process. Live, love and enjoy life with enthusiasm because you deserve it.
