✨Reading & Pondering 2-2✨

img_2608“Do you want to struggle to maintain control over what you can’t control anyway? Or do you want to surrender your life to its divine design?

Do you want to choose resistance and struggle, or do you want to choose surrender, which will restore your confidence and courage, allowing you to move forward? No one can be a warrior for you. No one can make this choice but you.

We have to make the choices and surround ourselves with people who make us feel strong and can see who we are beyond the limitations of our past.

I recently read a piece by Bishop T. D. Jakes, who says, “Let Them Go!”

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 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 who left.

I promise you that as you surrender and let go of what you’ve been holding on to, new people, inspiring people who see your greatness, will show up in your life.

It is in this peaceful, heartful state of surrender that you can have what you want, know that it is safe to speak out, and know that you are worthy of relaxing and moving forward rather than staying stuck in a past that can never be changed.

When you learn that you can trust life, life will deliver treasures beyond your imagination. You will find the courage and confidence that will remain with you every day for the rest of your life.”

Excerpt From: Debbie Ford & Wayne W. Dyer. “Courage.”
