Phew!!! Even the title is a doozy. Letting go!! Gosh that’s so subjective but so powerful!!
This is a hard subject for anyone. I came across this graphic on Facebook. It resonated with me deeply. It said something along the lines of If God closes the door don’t keep knocking on it. It made so much sense to me. He closed it for a reason. There’s nothing there for you anymore!! Move it along Sister!!
This quote came at the beginning of this season in my life. I sat on my couch and pondered as to WHY this resonated with me. At the time I was knocking on a door that was shut. I feel that sometimes we have to mourn those closed doors and then move along. I didn’t quite get that so many years before. I got it now. I now know my limit and that I will be just fine to walk away when those doors close. It all comes back to being obedient when God guides you to keep moving forward.
That is so liberating right?! When you know that you have the skills and the discipline to walk away. Better yet you have the empowerment and the confidence to walk away when doors shut like that. It means it time to grow and change. It’s time for growth. It’s time to harvest. It’s time in any capacity to MOVE forward yall.
Sure it’s going to be hard. Sure it’s going to be rocky in some points. Shoot it might be hard the whole dang time. But your blessing comes after. God doesn’t let you walk the journey alone. He is there the whole time. Just take his hand and allow Him to guide you through it all. He is so much bigger than the season you’re in. I promise you.
Now that I think of it. How exciting is it to know that all the glory goes to Him and He blesses you. So I’m going to pray for y’all who read this. I pray that whatever you’re walking through right now that God stirs in your heart, and that you hold His hand as you walk through this time. That you see the joy in His eye that he has for you. That you feel joy in this walk good and bad that He is going to bless you. I pray that His perfect love washes all over you and that you know that He loves you so much that His son died so that YOU can live!
Live y’all. Live in His name. Live life to the fullest. Do it with love and compassion. Do it because it brings you joy. Do what He intended you to do and stop knocking on those closed doors yall. Because He is right there is nothing back there that is going to help you grow. Plant good seed in your new soil and grow!!
As for me, well, I’m going to do the best that I can to knock down the walls that want to confine. Not today boo boo!! I will live life as He intended for me. I know that I have moments of being stubborn. But I hear what’s calling and that I can do this. So I will make distance between me and that closed door. Yes I will.
So let go of all the closed doors your knocking on. If it doesn’t feel right or you know it’s not good for you. Give yourself the permission to walk away. You don’t know what waits for you.
