It’s Time To Let It Go

December 17
I will know peace when…I learn to let go.

When a thing has served it’s purpose, it will go away. Sometimes it will break. At other times, it will simply die off. Then there are those times when for no reason, it will simply fall apart. There will be tiny pieces that are missing, making it impossible to put the thing back together. When a thing no longer has any purpose in your life, it will go sour. Or it may run away. Or it may pack and leave very abruptly. When a thing has served it’s divine purpose in your life, there is no explanation. There is no excuse. It can not, will not, must not stay in your presence. If you try to hold on to something that has already fulfilled its purpose in your life, you are going to hurt yourself. If holding on is disturbing your piece of mind, it makes sense to let it go.
Until today, you may have been holding on to something or someone, not realizing that it’s purpose in your life has been served. Just for today, surrender all attachments to people and things that you have been struggling to hold on to.

Affirmation: Today I am devoted to releasing everyone and everything that does not serve a divine purpose in my life! – Iyanla Vanzant

Books I Recommend – Maximize The Moment

Maximize The Moment by T.D. Jakes is my book recommendation, for this week.We need to revive the art of reading. Knowledge is power and contrary to some critics, what you don’t know can hurt you. I found this book worth reading! It talks about how to take advantage of every opportunity that God places in your path, with a sense of urgency. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow is not promised. All we have is right now. Commit to utilizing your time to the fullest. – jacquelineswow

Comfort Zone

I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I couldn’t fail; the same four walls and busy work were really more like jail.
I longed so much to do the things I’d never done before, but I stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.
I said it didn’t matter that I wasn’t doing much, I said I didn’t care for things like diamonds, furs and such.
I claimed to be so busy with the things inside the zone, but deep inside me, I longed for something special of my own.
I couldn’t let my life go by just watching others win. So I held my breath, I stepped outside, and let the change begin.
I took a step and with it found strength I’d never felt before.
I kissed my comfort zone good-bye and closed and locked the door.
If you are in a comfort zone, afraid to venture out, remember that all winners were at one time filled with doubt.
A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true.
Greet your future with a smile, success is there for you!

Our Daily Bread – Day 317

1 Corinthians 1:26-31 (The Message Bible)
Take a good look, friends, at who you were when you got called into this life. I don’t see many of “the brightest and the best” among you, not many influential, not many from high-society families. Isn’t it obvious that God deliberately chose men and women that the culture overlooks and exploits and abuses, chose these “nobodies” to expose the hollow pretensions of the “somebodies”? That makes it quite clear that none of you can get by with blowing your own horn before God. Everything that we have—right thinking and right living, a clean slate and a fresh start—comes from God by way of Jesus Christ. That’s why we have the saying, “If you’re going to blow a horn, blow a trumpet for God.”
