Let it go for 2008...by T. D. Jakes
When people can walk away from you: let them walk.
I don't want you to try to talk another person into staying withyou, loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you,staying attached to you.
When people can walk away from you let them walk.Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left.
The Bible said that,"They came out from us that it might be made manifest that they werenot for us. For had they been of us, no doubt they would havecontinued with us." [1John 2:19]
People leave you because they are not joined to you. And if theyare not joined to you, you can't make them stay. Let them go.
And it doesn't mean that they are a bad person, it just means thattheir part in the story is over. And you've got to know whenpeople's part in your story is over so that you don't keep tryingto raise the dead.
You've got to know when it's dead. You've got to know when it'sover.Let me tell you something. I've got the gift of good-bye. It's thetenth spiritual gift. I believe in "good-bye". It's not that I'minsensitive or uncaring, it's that I trust, I know whatever andwhomever God means for me to have and be a part of my life He willgive.
And if a relationship takes too much sweat I don't need it.Stop begging people to stay.Let them go!!

I have just read it to Graham who said' Do you want to let me go?!' He thinks the above is referring to relationships, but I think it is much more.
