How Can You Give Up and Let Go?

You can have what I have and all you have to do is give up. Give up on stress, worry, anxiety, gratifing everyone, and just let go.What do you have that is special? You are special and, more importantly, you were born with talent. Can you eliminate waste in your life and start living? The dictionary defines talent as a special natural ability or aptitude. Whether you think you have a talent or not, know that God did not place you on this Earth without some type of talent. We all have talents to further the Kingdom of God, and whether or not we use them, we can give up our waste and let go of fear.

Romans 12:6-8 ESV: “Having gifts that differ according to the grace given us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.”
I am a survivor – not because of anything I’ve done or anything I’ve achieved, but because My God has shown me the way. He delivered me from darkness in my most desperate times. I use to feel abandoned, always at fault, and I truly believed it was my lot in life. I'VE LEARNED TO GIVE UP AND LET GO FOREVER!Likewise, Jesus can deliver you. Life is short, and whether you are a believer or a non-believer, you will finish this life either with blessings or with sorrow.WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU GAVE IT ALL TO GOD? WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU ACTUALLY F-O-R-G-O-T TO WORRY? WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU ACTUALLY SPOKE TO JESUS? WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU THANKED SOMEONE FOR THEIR TIME OR CONTRIBUTION?

Have courage to stand up for your beliefs. The most difficult thing I have ever done was walk away, leave my comfort zone and make decisions that affect my family, children and grandchildren. I have to rely on the Power of God to deliver me from the gossipers, the whisperers and the prideful. I rely on deliverance from Jesus when I am confronted with conceit.Loneliness and despair will take a toll on anybody’s life. If you suffer from depression, anxiety, stress, and worry know that your Heavenly Father is with you and if you believe in the Power of God, The Holy Spirit will guide you through the hardest times of your life.

Lord, have mercy on us. Forgive us for all of our sins and Thank You for Jesus.
