Letting go is so hard to do. We hold on to people, past memories, places, things or bad habits. One of the reasons it is hard to let go is because “it” becomes comfortable and it can be fearful to us to make a change in our life that we know may be good for us. It’s the fear of the unknown! God has not given us a spirit of fear, but there are a lot of things in life we can allow to get the best of us due to fear. We fear that we will hurt others. We are fearful of being successful. We are fearful of change and being uncomfortable in the process. We are fearful of the work that comes with change and letting go. We are fearful to let go of our insecurities. We are even fearful of letting go of hurt and pain. We do not know how to be free of the guilt and shame of letting go and being free from: lies, hurt, negative thoughts and emotions, pain, rejection, loneliness, and all the things that satan tries to place in us.
There is a time and a season for everything, including people in our lives. When God says that the time or the season is up for a particular thing, habit or person learn the art of letting go. If we don’t learn to let go we end up in BONDAGE to: self, people, things, habits, negative thinking, hurt and pain, feelings and emotions. Which can all become STRONGHOLDS.
This process gets easier the more you do it💞
The longer you take the harder it is.
Remember, we have to let go of our old spirit man and die to self daily.
When God says it’s time to let go, let “IT” go!
Trust letting go and letting God…….. Real Talk💞💞💞
It feels good when you can be free. If you are in bondage pray and ask God to heal you, deliver you, break every chain, free you from bondage and set you free from the things in life that hold us down like: fear, doubt, jealousy, envy, hatred, insecurity, self pity, unforgiveness, lust of the flesh, greed, stinking thinking, fornication, adultery, procrastination, laziness, idolatry, pride, gossiping, being bragful or boastful, looking down on others, and anything else you may struggle with. Declare that these things come out of your life right now in the name of Jesus and allow the Holy Spirit to do a work in you. You cannot do this on your own, but the Holy spirit has to do it. Get in the Word and as the Holy Spirit reveal things to you he can do a work in you if you allow him to. So start on your road to Freedom. Real Talk!!!
This video speaks volumes. What the devil means for evil God can still turn it around for good. Look at God!!!
Happy Thursday, today let’s be mindful of the words we speak. Ask yourself do your words bring forth life or death, negative or positive, uplift and edify or tear down others or even yourself. When you are able to answer this then you know what’s truly in heart. Let’s make that change if we need to starting today. Remember life and death are in the power of the tongue. Real Talk!!!
A Tree Known by Its Fruit
33 “Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit. 34 Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart[p] brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. 36 But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. 37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”
Great morning all, Today’s Scriptures are:
18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.
As I read the scripture it captured my attention that Joseph was a “just man”, so the question came to me how many of us are just? Joseph had the opportunity to put Mary on blast for something he felt like she did wrong to him but he did not. Let’s not be so quick to put people, what we think is an offense to us, on blast to others. Find out what is really going on first. The situation may not be what it appears to be. 💞Be blessed!!!

Happy Friday all,
as I read this morning about holding anger against your brother (anyone) in your heart the question is, is it worth it? No, it’s not. Life is short so don’t let anger and unforgiveness remain in your heart for another. That’s what satan wants because he knows that if you don’t forgive then God can’t forgive you. Satan will make you feel that you have justification to not forgive and stay angry with your brother. No one is promised tomorrow and it is a weight on you. So forgive and see how free you will feel. You don’t have to trust a person to be in your life again to forgive them. You always hear that forgiveness is for you not for them and it’s true. So don’t be weighed down another day, free yourself. Love you guys and have a blessed and great weekend. Real Talk💞
Murder Begins in the Heart
21 “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder,[a] and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’ 22 But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause[b] shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’ shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire. 23 Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.
