In general, most people would agree that it is good to take an inventory of one’s life. Why? Because it is during that time one reflects on who or what they need to purge from their lives. For the most part, that means breaking the chains that have been holding you back from living your best life. How? By letting go.
Thus, I liken it to a spring cleaning of sorts. Of course, no one likes spring cleaning, but it is always necessary. Provided that, it is during that time that we often come across things that we should and need to be letting go of.
Letting go can be difficult
So, who or what are you holding on to, that you know in your heart, you need to be actively letting go of? Is it a toxic relationship, a job that you hate, illegal/immoral activity, bad eating habits, negative emotions, etcetera? You fill in the blank as it pertains to you.
You may be thinking, “But SD, letting go is hard.” And you are absolutely right. Indeed, nobody said letting go would be easy.
No doubt, it is hard walking away from a toxic relationship when you love that person. Next, it is hard to leave a job/career you hate or you’re not proud of, when you need the money.
And I think we all would agree that it is hard giving up things we enjoy that are bad for our health. No matter what “it” is — letting go is in your best interest.
Let Go and Let God
Know this, when you allow God to direct your path, He will lead you to His best. Simply stated, Proverbs 3:6 New Living Translation says, “Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” For that reason alone, letting go is for your own good – an absolute must.
In other words, you could never get anything better than God’s best in every area of your life. So, let go and seek His directions.
