A Lil' Something That I REALLY Needed to Read Today...

The following is something that was sent to me, via email, from a very dear and close friend of mine. I don't know if she felt lead to send this particular email to me, but I believe God chose her to send this to me today for a very good reason. Before I opened this email, I had been stressing and struggling for several days over a personal situation between me and my younger sister. In fact, I lost sleep over it last night and then all this morning, I was stressing over it and could not focus on anything else....So, the timing of this email was incredible.... While reading this email, the hairs on my arms started to stand on end and I got chills...I KNEW this was meant for me and it spoke directly towards my situation. I was speechless and moved....sometimes, our friends don't even realize what a blessing they are! It is clear that God is working thru my friend in helping me out in this situation. How I love my friend so much and how I love the Lord with all my heart and soul! Here is what the email said:

Let it T. D. Jakes

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. 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 a bad person, 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 dead. 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 Him... LET IT GO!!! If you are struggling with the healing of a broken relationship.... LET IT GO!!! 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 needto... LET IT GO!!! Let the past be the past. Forget the former things. GOD is doing a new thing for 2010 !!! LET IT GO!!! Get Right or Get Left .. think about it, and then LET IT GO!!! "The Battle is the Lord's!"
