Letting Go Takes Love

This quote is a perfect illustration of love. Love can start with each of us. To let go, means adapting and adjusting to one another in spite of our things and stuff.

To let go, means understanding we’re different with our own preferences and ways of communicating.

Kind of like po-tay-toe or po-tah-toe. (smile) We must keep our sense of humor (grit teeth smile)

To let go, means checking our motives with our choice of words to one another.

To let go, means caring less about what someone says or feels about us. Psst, they talked about Jesus!

To let go, means recognizing we’re in different seasons of life and timing is everything.

To let go, means growth and taking responsibility for our actions.

All in all, right or wrong, it is, what it is. Life goes on. (smile)

God bless us, as we have faith and trust, in you, to let go and stand on Romans 8:28, And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

1 Corinthians 13:3-13 (NKJV)
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.
4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;
5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;
6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.
9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.
13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Hello friends. (smile)
Sometimes, when we’re ready, letting go brings freedom to live life, by faith and trusting God, in all things, because love never fails. ~

We have to hurt in order to know. Fall in order to grow, lose in order to gain, because most of life’s lessons are taught through pain.
~ Unknown Author ~

Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?
~ Jeremiah 32:27 ~
