If you know me, then you’ll know that I am terrible at moving on. It’s not in my nature to let go, to move on, to just walk away. When I love, I love hard. Unconditionally and irrevocable. It’s a beautiful thing, to love so deeply and openly. But it’s also an incredible burden when you’re trying to move on from something, someone, you so desperately need to let go of.
You don’t want to let go because you’ve invested so much time and energy into this person, that giving up seems like an awfully foolish mistake. All the years of building a life with someone, just to walk away. All the memories, the dreams, the hopes. All gone. It’s something I deeply struggle with. And I know you do too. I am writing these words from experience, an experience you are all too familiar with.
I know, trust me, I do. There are people, people who move on effortlessly. Easy come, easy go. People who date someone for 3 years just to breakup and be in another relationship 2 months later. And so on. It’s a sport for them. They don’t care. It’s inconceivable to me how people can be in 6-7 relationships in the time span of just a few years. I know it is to you too. We aren’t like that. The sheer thought of such an emotional investment is unimaginable to you and me.
So we hold on, we cling to our past with the hopes that somehow things could just maybe go back to how they used to be. That they come back. That there is a way to reconcile. But there isn’t. They aren’t coming back because they do not care. You need to understand that.
So it’s time to put yourself first. To put your own happiness above the desire to be with someone who doesn’t want to be with you. The person you once knew, no longer exists. They’re a sheer memory of your past. A ghost. So stop letting them haunt you. It’s time to move on.
I know moving on feels like the hardest thing in the world right now to do, but it’ll get easier when you learn how to love yourself. So put yourself first, love yourself first.
That’s the first step in moving on. And I am here to tell you: “get stepping”!
It’s time to move on. Time to let go of the illusion that they’d come back. It’s time to realize that you deserve so much better. It’s time to stop putting them on a pedestal with the idea that they were somehow perfect and flawless because guess what? They weren’t. They aren’t that great. And they sure as hell weren’t the best thing that ever happened to you.
A new season is approaching. A season of prosperity and hope. A season of blessings. I can feel it in my veins. It’s coming. But in order to receive these blessings and step into your wonderful future, you’ll need to let go of what is holding you back. Let go of who’s holding you back.
The broken dreams, the false promises, the disappointments, the guilt, the shame, the hatred. It’s time to move on from that. That is behind you. That is in the past.
In order for you to walk into your promise land, in order to take hold of your God given potential, it’s going to take strength and courage. Strength to push through the pain and heartbreak. And courage to let go of the baggage of the past.
God is going to do wonders in your life, but you have to put in the effort and let go. You can’t receive your blessings, if you’re looking over your shoulders clinging to the past. It doesn’t work that way. It’s time to move on. To let go. As much as it hurts, as painful as it is. As disappointing as it may be. It’s time.
We can’t stay here. We can’t lay in our sorrow while the world is moving past us. It’s time to move forward.
There are times in life when we don’t know what we want. Whether we should walk away or stay, whether we should hold on or move on. We all have these moments in life. But this isn’t one of those moments. We are at a turning point in life. There are no doubts, no ‘maybes’, no second (or seventh) chances. This thing is done, its over. There is no going back.
I can feel the tide turning. For me, for you. This is it. The chapter is ending. The book is finished. It’s for a new beginning. It’s time to move. God is about to turn your life around.
There is no room for indecisiveness anymore. It’s time for God to turn the page. For you to move past from whatever is holding you back. What has happened, has happened. There’s no point in dwelling on it. Move on.
I am excited. For you. For me. Because I can see the light at the end of this long dark tunnel. And I know you’ll see it too. It’s coming. It’s time.
I feel alive. There’s a fire burning inside my soul that pulls me closer to God. Closer to my true potential. Closer to the promise land. I’m coming for it. I’m running towards my blessings. I say goodbye to my past. Goodbye to the people who didn’t want to stay. Goodbye to the things and people that broke me. And I’m saying hello to my blessings. I’m ready.
It’s time to move on.
Stop focusing on only what you’re coming out of. What you’re trying to get away from. Focus on what you’re moving towards. Focus on the big picture. Because knowing where you’re going, is where the battle begins. There’s power in potential. You just got to grab it with both hands and chase it. Know where you’re going and let go of where you’ve been.
In order to let go of the past and step into your glorious future, you need to prepare yourself and get ready for your calling. Get ready physically, mentally, spiritually. You have to become at peace with you.
Often times, separation is Gods way of preparation. He’s molding you, sharpening you. Turning you into the man or woman you were always meant to be. That isn’t always easy. But it’s always worth it.
I know this season that you’re in right now, may be dark, may be difficult, may be heartbreaking. But there’s a way out. There’s hope. And it’s coming. God will lead the way. He has a plan; you just have to have faith and trust him. Even if you can’t see it right now.
In order to let go and move on, you’ll need faith. A faith that doesn’t shake, that doesn’t break. Its another level of faith. Have faith that there will be better days.
It is time to move on. To let go. To be whole again. Even if every fiber in your body wants to hold on. God is saying “Let it go, move on. I have something for you that is better than you could possibly imagine”.
That is the God that we serve. A God who is kind, who believes in us, even if we can’t. Who only wants the best for us, even when we are at a loss.
