Today I got some great news. Not for me, but for someone I once thought was my friend, until I realised I was way more invested in that ‘friendship’. My immediate instinct when I heard the news was to reach out and say congratulations on a job well done, and to wish them all the best in the endeavor, which I did.
So today, I am thankful for the ability to let go. I am thankful that in the past 3 years, God has been teaching me to let go. To let go of people and situations that are not good for me. To let go of the pain and the hurt. To let go of the things that held me captive; pride, mistrust, unforgiveness, fear, anger, hate, judgement and so on. I am thankful that my fall back game is getting ever acceptable in His sight.
I am thankful that God continues to teach me what to let go of so that I can hold on to Him.
