Daily Devotional – 1/19/15 “Sometimes you have to let go!”

I know it may be hard to do but you might just have to let it go! Whatever it is you’re trying so hard to hold on to, it’s draining your joy. Sometimes you have to cut your losses, bow out gracefully and move on because everything just isn’t going to work out and everybody isn’t going to work with you. See, there are some places you’re going that you can’t invite certain people to and you should know that by now. There are some things you’re going to be blessed with that not everybody is going to have the privilege of sharing with you but that’s ok, you should know who they are by now. Not everybody is going to rejoice with you but you should be alright with that by now. There will even be some folk, who you thought had your back, that will celebrate your downfall but you should expect that too. This is why you need to reevaluate your circle every now and then. Every time you get elevated check your circle. I’ve learned that even when you fall, you need to check your circle because sometimes folk around you will cause you to stumble.

Sometimes you need to let go. There are some folks camped around you who are planning your demise yet they are smiling and writing down your dreams. Yea, there are folks who walk with you on the road to creating your vision and the entire time they are wishing you’d become a victim. But get this … It’s their job and unless you know how to test their spirit, you are going to keep falling victim to their schemes. When will you let them go? So what if they’ve been your best friend since you were 2, if they haven’t gotten on board with where you are by now, it’s time to let them go. Baby, if you and your spouse are still headed in two separate directions and it’s been 10 years; it’s time to let them go. God said we are made to be helpmates for one another! It’s time for reevaluation of your circle because sometimes you have to let go! Galatians 1:10 sums it up by simply asking the question, “Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.” What are you doing? Who are you trying to please? Sometimes you have to let go of people and things in order to get to where you need to be!
