2019 is here and my question to you is what have you not let go? Yesterday's grief and woes will ruin your tomorrow.
Remind me again why you are still holding on to those pains, hurts and inequities. The scripture in Psalms says this: "Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved” (Psalm 55:22).
What did I just hear you say? Easier said than done? I am in total agreement with you on this. However, what do you have to lose? You have been carrying it for 1, 2 or 10 years already. Need more proof? How about this scripture in Isaiah: "For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you" (Isaiah 41:13).
You are in a Tug-of-War. You get to decide who wins this battle. Nothing good will manifest from holding on to old wounds. We must find a way to free ourselves from the bondage.
If you are hurting from the things of your past, speak to someone. Find a friend, family member or a therapist to help you talk it out. We all need healthy coping mechanisms to help us get through those tough moments.
Just remember God loves you and has prepared a way out for all of us. Let it go..
Step into your future, however, don't forget to step into it with God.
