Let Them Go by T.D. Jakes

There are people who can walk away from you. And hear me when I tell you this! When people can walk away from you, let them walk. I don’t want you to try to talk another person into staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you, staying attached to you. When people can walk away from you let them walk. Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left. The Bible said that, “They came out from us that it might be made manifest that they were not for us. For had they been of us, no doubt they would have continued with us.” [1 John 2:19] People leave you because they are not joined to you. And, if they are not joined to you, you can’t make them stay. Let them go. And it doesn’t mean that they are a bad person, it just means that their part in the story is over. And you’ve got to know when people’s part in your story is over, so that you don’t keep trying to raise the dead. You’ve got to know when it’s dead. You’ve got to know when it’s over. Let me tell you something. I’ve got the gift of goodbye. It’s the tenth spiritual gift. I believe in “goodbye”. It’s not that I’m insensitive or uncaring, it’s that I trust. I know whatever and whomever God means for me to have and be a part of my life He will give. And, if a relationship takes too much sweat I don’t need it. Stop begging people to stay. Let them go!!

I have honestly made this mistake of attempting to talkone into cvaring,loving and staying and I have made me and my circle miserable. Thinking that we would overcome the trials around ur. I was so wrong. I realize I am NOT the conmtroller of my destiny that has beem already prepared for me before I knew of a destiny. I will view this daily and purchase the book as I will need reinforcements.

Thank you both for commenting. I agree that it is a powerful message affirming something that we already know in our hearts, though choose to ignore for one reason or another. TD Jakes "puts it out there" as a clear reminder; a positive affirmation for what one would typically see as a negative situation.

I definitely believe in seasons. People come into our contact for seasons. But you, must beable to learn from it to grow. Not, to become bitter.
