Why are you holding on so tight!? Lay it down! Lay down the worries that lurks within your mind, and beclouds your ability to make right judgments. Lay down the garment of heaviness that has made your life so uninteresting. The quicker you release the hurts inside you the quicker you would experience divine peace that surpasses all human understanding. Perhaps, the unforgiving attitude is the reason why it has been difficult for you to move forward, since you are also in bondage with the person you refuse to forgive.
I know you have got your problems because everybody is got them. Yes, we all have seasons when we are caught up in a feeling -doubts, faith, fear, sorrow, and what have you. Likewise, we have reasons to never allow negative emotions to weigh us down. Our maker has given us all things pertaining to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). His promises are Yes, and Amen in Christ Jesus (2 Cor. 1:20). “So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet.” James 4: 7-10.
I hope you know that all the problems you are worrying about can keep you from living now, and the reason it is a worry is because you can’t handle it on your own. Therefore, do well to shake them off and lay them down at the cross where your freedom is found! To those who would rely on Him, God has promised to give bouquets of roses instead of ashes, message of joy instead of news of doom, a praising heart instead of a languid spirit (Isaiah 61:3). Just hold on to the promises God has made to you, it is the only sure hope. Yes, you can still stand up straight. You can move on no matter where you are at the moment. Be strong and don’t give up, and pray when you feel afraid.
The story is far from over! I see His glory unfolding in this new month. When you let go God will take control! “So be content with who you are, and don’t put on airs. God’s strong hand is on you; He’ll promote you at the right time. Live carefree before God; he is most careful with you.” Hold on to Him! Even In the middle of the storm, hold on! Let this be your resurrection song. Let this be your Hallelujah tune. Shake them off and Put on a new garment! You’re winning! Yes, we are winning!
