Do you need to let go of something?
Is there something in your life you’ve been hanging onto that you need to let go of?
Our dog, Pip, loves this toy pictured. It started out as a stuffed candy corn, and now lay battered and bruised, showing more of its insides than its outsides. Surely, a sad state. For as much as she still loves to play with her candy corn, pull stuffing from it, and show it who’s boss, it’s gotten to the point where playing with it could cause her more harm than good. If she ingests that stuffing, it could cause a whole host of problems. Ones that could even be fatal. For that reason, I had to take it away this morning. Time of death… 9:10am CST. A moment of silence please.
Spring, summer, fall, and winter are beautiful examples of how God uses seasons to bring things in and out of our lives. Each with a carefully crafted purpose. Each with it’s own pre-determined timeline. Each with it’s own supernaturally designed impact. For us, those seasons may look like friends, relationships, jobs, opportunities, emotions, or even rest. At the time of their arrival, they are new, fully stuffed, and in tact. Over time, its purpose is fully served, and the tears and pulled stuffing serve as signs that it’s time for that season to be over. Hanging onto it will begin to work against its intended purpose, and leave us in a more vulnerable state.
It might be difficult, and even emotional, but if God is giving you signs that it’s time to let go of something then, Sweet One, let it go. Holding onto your torn up toy is only causing you unnecessary hurt, and delaying the fresh new toy He has waiting for you.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 - "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens”
