Daily Devotional – 9/26/14 “Let it go!”

Ok, I’m going to say this because it needs to be said … We are all going to die but there is no need to speed it up. Stop killing yourself with stressing over things you have no control over. You, right now, are stressing over a man or woman that probably isn’t even yours; let him or her go! You are stressing over credit card debt that you didn’t have any business in any way and then you got the audacity to be mad at God, no boo; it wasn’t Him, it was you and now you need to cut them up, get on a plan and pay them off. Your blood pressure is high at this very moment because you won’t take the medicine the doctor prescribed because you say you don’t need it but ok. You know good and well that high blood pressure runs in your family and if you won’t take care of your health then you need to take the medicine and if you don’t then tell your folk what funeral home you want them to use because you do know that high blood pressure can kill you right? I’m just stating facts. You and your spouse are probably fighting over finances instead of sitting down like adults and figuring out how to fix them. You are probably at home stressing over the folk on the job instead of leaving that mess on the job. I mean, at what point will you actually enjoy the life that God has actually given you? Ecclesiastes 2:24 says, “So I decided there is nothing better than to enjoy food and drink and to find satisfaction in work. Then I realized that these pleasures are from the hand of God.”

See, if you work then you should enjoy the fruits of your labor every now and then. When God created the Heavens and the Earth, didn’t He rest? When you work a job, don’t you get off days? And when you work, don’t you get paid? Then why shouldn’t you have some enjoyment in your life? And baby, your life should be enjoyable. Your home should be enjoyable. Your home should be your refuge from this cruel world. When you face hell all day in the world, you should step in your home and not have to face hell there too because it should be your sanctuary. You should be able to find rest there and if you don’t then you need to have a long talk with the folk who resides there. Please understand, I am in no way telling you to make drastic changes like divorce so don’t go home and leave a Dear John letter talking about Lakisha told me to do it because baby, I ain’t testifying in not one divorce proceeding but what I am saying is this … life can be too short to live each day stressing, losing your hair, getting sick, off balance, running up doctor bills because you’re mad at the world, can’t get prayers through because your heart is so full of hate, worship ain’t about nothing because your praise is so full of crap, you can’t smile because you won’t allow yourself to be happy, can’t be love because you’re so caught up on that dude or female who broke your heart years ago, won’t let God in because you’re still holding on to that church hurt that happened when you were 20 and you’re 52; baby LET IT GO! Momma hurt you; she’s gone. Daddy didn’t love you, he’s gone. Your baby daddy did you wrong, he’s moved on. Baby momma put you on child support, pay it and move on. Cousin didn’t pay you back, forgive them and move on. Job laid you off, you found a new one; let it go! LET IT GO! For the bible says in Proverbs 12:25, “Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad.” This is my good word for you today … LET IT GO and enjoy life!
