Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Face It then Let It Go!
Life…………… it’s just not easy! But then……….. most things in life that come easy are not really appreciated.
John 16:33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
For years and I do mean years, I’ve carried around things in my soul that ate away at me. Controlled my decisions and became truth in my heart.
And then I figured it out. It was shown to me by a gracious and merciful God that I didn’t have to let those things control me and those things weren’t who I am. As it says in the book “A Broken Way” by Ann Voskamp, “Maybe the love gets in easier right where the heart is broken”.
1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.
Letting go is a daily chore and one that I find refreshing. One that releases my heart to the joys of life instead of holding me down by the pain. I rejoice in my broken heart because it has caused me to love strong!
Philippians 3:12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.
I’ve had to face my own and I’ve had to face others and at the end, I’ve had to LET IT GO!
Lord, Thank You! You alone have shown me Joy! Amen!
