Silver Jubilee

Today I turn 25.

Silver Jubilee. I am so excited. I can’t stop smiling. It’s odd, I’m excited to be growing older, getting old, getting wrinkles and fine lines and certain things sagging but I’m excited all the same. I’m looking forward to being older and wiser. I have achieved quite a lot in my 25 years and I am proud and grateful that God has brought such blessing in my life. I am grateful foe nieces and nephews who make me smile. I am grateful for siblings who support me in everything. I am grateful for friends who hold my hand as I walk go through this journey called life. I’m grateful I have not had to bury any close friends. I am grateful for all the memories that I have made. All the friends I have, old and new. But most of all, I am grateful for the gift of life. I am grateful for the gift of my life. Thank you Lord for my life, all the trials I have gone through, all the tears I have cried, all the joy I have felt and all the happiness that is abundant in my life. I will attack life with a renewed passion and seek happiness in whatever situation I find myself in. In the words of Mark Twain, I will sing like no one’s listening, love like I’ve never been hurt, dance like nobody’s watching, and live like its heaven on earth.

Psalms 91 was dedicated to me as a birthday blessing. I will share it below;

Let it go 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.
I mean hang up the phone.

When people can walk away from you let them walk.
Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left.
The bible said that,
They came out from us that it might be made manifest
that they were not for us.
For had they been of us,
no doubt they would have continued with us. [1 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 me tell you something.
I’ve got the gift of good-bye.
It’s the tenth spiritual gift,
I believe in good-bye.

It’s not that I’m hateful, it’s that I’m faithful,
and I know whatever God means for me to have
He’ll give it to me.
And if it takes too much sweat I don’t need it.
Stop begging people to stay.
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 ..LET IT GO!!!

If you are holding on to past hurts and pains …LET IT GO!!!

If someone can’t treat you right, love you back, and see your worth…LET IT GO!!!

If someone has angered you …LET IT GO!!!

If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and revenge …LET IT GO!!!

If you are involved in a wrong relationship or addiction …LET IT GO!!!

If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets your needs or talents …LET IT GO!!!

If you have a bad attitude…LET IT GO!!!

If you keep judging others to make yourself feel better…LET IT GO!!!

If you’re stuck in the past and God is trying to take you to a new level in Him…LET IT GO!!!

If you are struggling with the healing of a broken relationship….LET IT GO!!!

If you keep trying to help someone who won’t even try to help themselves…LET IT GO!!!

If you’re feeling depressed and stressed ….LET IT GO!!!

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…LET IT GO!!!

Let the past be the past.

Forget the former things. GOD has new plans for you !!! LET IT GO!!!

Get Right or Get Left .. think about it, and then LET IT GO!!!

“The Battle is the Lord’s!”
