Time to Let Go

November 6, 2019

When is the right time to let go?

Our pain and suffering often results from our unwillingness to let go. There are certain things that we keep holding on to, but not all of these things are good for our mind and spirit. 

These are the top five (5) things that we need to let go of:


  • Worry and Anxiety 

Everyone experiences worries and anxieties at one point or another, but if you have them all the time, it is definitely not good for you. Worry and anxiety can hold you back from making good decisions that will better your life. 


  • Negative comments 

In this digitally connected world that we live in, it is easy to receive negative comments on the internet from people who do not even know you personally. While it may seem easy to brush off negative comments, some of them linger in our consciousness. Let go of these negative comments and don’t let them bring down your self-esteem.


  •  Disappointment

We all have disappointments, but as Nelson Mandela said, “The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”


  • Resentment 

Are you still resentful of something that someone did to you in the past? Bearing a grudge won’t do you any good. While the other person moves on to other things, you will just be harboring darkness inside your heart. So, it’s time to let go.


  • Regret

Some people have regrets, some don’t. Holding on to regret will just keep you stuck in the same situation and prevent you from moving forward to greater things. 


We need to let go of these things so that we can step into the great destiny that God has designed for us. Think of these five things as heavy stones you are carrying. The longer you carry them, the more you will feel tired and lose your strength. It is about time to let go!
