A girl's gotta do.....

.....what the Holy Spirit leads her to do!!!
I was talking to Pappy about how God had led me to go back and make amends for some situations in my life....when not a minute later, I read an e-mail I had received....which was a total confirmation of what I had just talked to him about. two separate two separate speakers...I heard it again....not in the same words, or was all about forgiveness....and letting go....letting go of so many things that the following mentions.
I love how God speaks to me....
how He corrects me....
because He loves me!!!

by T. D Jakes
There are people who can walk away from you.
And hear me when I tell you this! When people can walk away from you: let them walk. I don't want you to try to talk another person into staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you, staying attached to you. When people can walk away from you let them walk.
Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left.
The Bible says, "They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. (I John 2:19)
People leave you because they are not joined to you.
And if they are not joined to you, you can't make them stay.
Let them go!!
And it doesn't mean that they are a bad person it just means that their part in the story is over. And you've got to know when people's part in your story is over so that you don't keep trying to raise the dead. You've got to know when it's dead. You've got to know when it's over.
Let them go!!
If you are holding on to something that doesn't belong to you and was never intended for your life, then you need to......
If you are holding on to past hurts and pains ......
If someone can't treat you right, love you back, and see your worth.....
If someone has angered you....
If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and revenge.....
If you are involved in a wrong relationship or addiction......
If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets your needs or talents.....
If you have a bad attitude.....
If you keep judging others to make yourself feel better......
If you're stuck in the past and God is trying to take you to a new level in Him.......
If you are struggling with the healing of a broken relationship.....
If you keep trying to help someone who won't even try to help themselves.....
If you're feeling depressed and stressed ........
If there is a particular situation that you are so used to handling yourself and God is saying "take your hands off of it"....then you need to......
The Battle is the Lord's!!!
I bet by now....those of you who read my blog very much...think that I must be some kind of really horrible person....because I do tend to just lay my faults out there for all to see....but....I can't even begin to tell you how many of the above "let it go" spoke just to me....just about me!!! For the past few weeks, because of some things that have been happening in my life....and the lives of a lot of those close to me....I've found myself doing some "soul searching"....and truly having to let go of some past hurts....things that I have no control over, and have just used up too much valuable time worrying and fretting over!!!
I've got to let go of past hurts and pains....those who have angered me....addiction (food).....bad attitude.....judging others to make myself feel better (oh, this one was truly hard to admit... :(.....stuck in the past.....struggling with healing a broken relationship (not with Pappy!!!).....trying to help someone who won't help themselves (oh, the story I could tell here...but won't!!!).....depressed and stressed....taking my hands off of certain situations!!!
So...what all of this brings to my mind is this:
In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!


  1. Of course we don't think you're're the rest of us. Don't you find that admiting your faults is actually a relief? I know I do. And so much of what you write here makes sense to me because I've also done it!

  2. Oh wow Deb, this is so timely! First thought is NO I do not think of you as can that be? You are a child of God! ok that issue is settled now!!!
    And listening to a sermon a couple of weeks back about "stoning" .... I realized that for the most part most people have already gathered "pocket stones" ... we do not have to trouble ourselves with finding a stone, we got them stored up in our pocket to toss at the first person that scorns us with hateful rude words, to toss stones at those that mock us because of our stand for righteousness....on and on ...
    My thought is "Who is without sin cast the first stone" ...uhm hello where did everybody GO?
    I have one person in my life that I struggle with "everyday" and I do mean everyday.....I sometimes find myself fussing with this person as I start my day, this person took things from me that I can never get back, this person has robbed me of precious moments that can never be captured again....what I have to remember is the "THIEF" used this vessel to kill steal and destroy me...and as long as I continue to dwell upon the horrible painful experiences this person has given and continues to give...I hae to remember that dwelling upon all this darkness hate and death is nothing but me feeding upon the poison within this person's soul....I choose life...that I might live..if this person chooses darkness hate and death ... I cannot change their choice but I sure do not have to get in the boat with them or as your blog this morning....I cannot throw stones at this person....I must see them as "blind" and "ignorant"...Would I toss a stone at a blind person heck no..that is is throwing stones at a spiritual blind person....or one that ignorant...I am called to be a Light the darkness hate and death of the world around me....
    Oh Deb, thank you for your post this morning a sweet reminder ...Rhonda don't throw stones ..... but give Light Love and Life ....David picked up five smooth stones.....which presented the name of Jesus...where did David get the the brook..the brook of his has a spiritual meaning...if I will go the "brook of my spiritual inheritance and gather the Name of Jesus I will be wise and victorious in my battles against the enemy.....not the vessel but the powers that rule the vessel.....oh Deb thank you so much this morning ! lubbay

  3. Great blog. I see myself in a lot of these that I need to let go especailly about the one who won't help themselves, that just keeps me angry. Thanks for the eye opening lesson here by God. He does speak loudly through you and you are not a horrible person. You are human and God is using your human nature to bring to us that we are just as human as you. You are a great and wonderful person and I love you very much and thank God that he brought you in my life. Love ya..............:)

  4. Helloooo,

  5. Dear Michele...I was so very humbled when I read the message you left for me. My husband told me to respond to you, but since you're listed as "Anonymous"....I sincerely hope that you will read this comment. So many recently as this past Sunday...I thought I would just give this up because sometimes it drains me...but...He spoke to me thru a sermon we heard and told me "no...not yet"!!!! Thanks again for your very encouraging words!!!
    In His Most Precious Love...Deb

  6. I love these Hopeful thoughts. They are so powerful! Praying for you and yours, Gayle

  7. Oh, I recognize myself in this blog and I'm very glad you wrote about it! Your openness open hearts!
