Let go

Never Too Early

This particular post was inspired by a conversation I had with someone yesterday. Before I begin, I must say that the conversation was a divine appointment in the bathroom (a lot of things happen in the bathroom), because I just went to charge my phone for a bit then get back to the event, and in the process a young lady I knew came in, that I had interacted with earlier. Long story short, I missed the rest of the event, but you know what? I didn’t care, God had set that bathroom forum up. He works in mysterious ways, which means we always have to be prepared.

Anyhow, as we were talking, one thing that stood out to me was toward the end of our conversation when she said that it was hard for her to let go of control and in one way or another said it was easier for me because I was older. It got me thinking. That is a mindset of a lot of people, specifically those of a younger generation. However, I find it disheartening that people have that mindset because there is no better time then the present to really pursue God and let Him guide your purpose. It makes sense though, because when you are young you feel that you have your whole life ahead of you before deciding to do one thing or another, particularly live a Christ-driven life. However, just hearing all the stories that are out in this crazy society, just in this country alone, life is precious and not promised to anyone, and there is no good reason to wait to get it together. Furthermore, there are so many others that are in fact pursuing their dreams and are doing it all in and they are being a shining light in this dark world. Therefore, if you don’t pursue and go after what God has special for you, someone else will get the task and your life will be empty, to be quite frank. The longer you wait the longer it will take for God to release on you all He has and wants to do by, through, and for you. Many times God is just waiting for us to come to Him and give Him the keys, which I found out to be the best decision I ever made.

As I remind myself and others, when I get to heaven I don’t want God to look at me and say “if only you had done this the first time I asked you” or “if only you would have let me love you” or “if only you had remained faithful” or “if only you didn’t give up.” How sad would that be?! Don’t wait to do what you know you have absolutely no good reason to not do now. God is waiting for you.Your purpose depends on it. It’s never too early to put into practice what you learned, because, those that did will tell you it’s not worth it. On the flip side, it’s never too late. God is awesome and can develop and bring out of you things you never knew to exist.

It’s never too early; you are never too young to start letting God transform your world by giving Him your all. It’s never too late; you are never to old to start letting God restore all that was lost.

Punctuation w/ Purpose

Something I heard some years ago. Many times in life we wait for God to start our new chapter. However, when you end a chapter can’t end it with a comma. A comma doesn’t end a sentence. It pauses a phrase before continuing the thought. In the same manner, comma is telling God that you are going to hold on to what He told you to let go or end, in order to begin a next new chapter of your life. That may be a variety of many things: relationship, job, house, money, comfort ability, etc. It’s pretty much telling God He you don’t trust His authorship of your life. So it’s like you hang on just in case…But you won’t get to the new chapter, because you’re stuck in the old.

punctuation717548When you end it with a period, however, or even a question mark (you may not have the slightest clue what’s finna happen next), you allow God to continue the story, fulfilling your purpose. A period, says to God that you trust Him enough to leave behind what you know, many cases for long periods of time, many pages. Ending with a period, letting go that is, give God the green light to take you to new places and keeps the story in progression. Thus, it doesn’t drag out and you stay in or get in unnecessary mess that wasn’t even a part of the original story…
