Let Go & Move On for Peace
As people, we will encounter different situations and circumstances. There are some that hurt us deeply, disappoint us badly, or break us terribly. It can be caused initially by a person, a group, a company, or other factors. As you focus on the negative things that have happened in your life, you lose your peace. Peace is exchanged for: Fear of the situation happening again, a defensive attitude as a form of protection, anxiety from memories, or depression from pain and disappointment. Well, it is time to Let Go & Move On for your Peace.
The enemy wants to destroy your hope, faith, and belief for a better future. However, you can choose to Let Go & Move On for Peace, which results in victories in your life. When you hold on to your past and your peace is voided, the way you perceive your world is different, and consequently, the way you respond, make decisions, and interact with others also changes.
Negative Circumstances do not have to control you. However, when you allow the effects of those circumstances to remain at the forefront of your mind, you find yourself prisoner to your emotions: limiting your potential.
John 14:27- Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
Someone told me the story of a hot air balloon being anchored down. I believe that believers living without peace are in a hot air balloon weighed down with anchors. However, when you choose to let go and move on, those situations become the flame for your hot air balloon to get you to new heights in your life. Did you know that when you overcome the difficulties in your life, there is growth, maturity, and wisdom gained? Will you allow the challenges you are facing or have faced to hinder your progress or help propel you into your next level?
What steps do you need to do to move on? Do you need to forgive? Do you need to let go control and allow God to take care of the matter? Do you need to ask God to mend your heart? Do you need to trust God with something you do not have the full picture of yet? Do you need to let go of an unhealthy relationship? Do you need to go to counseling? Do you need to pray for an enemy instead of continuing to talk about what they have done to you?
Remember if you keep replaying the situation in your mind, you will not be able to move on. You don't want to remain captured in the trap of a moment or time in your life. It is time to force the release of that grip of depression, fear, anxiety, and stress off of your mind. Walk into the New! Leave the past in the past. Pray yourself Free! Speak yourself Free! See yourself Free! Believe and have Faith to be Free!
You will not be overtaken by a memory. Instead, you will testify of your victory!
In Worry- Free Living, Joyce Meyers stated, "If I wanted peace in my life, I had to learn to just let some things go- forget them and MOVE ON" (Meyers, p. 4).
I know that letting go can be a challenge on its own. However, holding on to things becomes toxic. You can become consumed in your feelings, thoughts, and emotions. You can find yourself drowning without a hope for air. Look to God for help and direction. He wants to change your heart and mind. He wants you to walk around in Peace and not torment. He wants you free and not bound. He wants you healed and not broken. Make that choice today! Let Go & Move On! You can do it!
