Cut it Loose

  • Fearing that we would run aground on rocky ground, they let go four anchors from the stern, and wished for daylight. As the sailors were trying to flee out of the ship, and had lowered the boat into the sea, pretending that they would lay out anchors from the bow, Paul said to the centurion and to the soldiers, 'Unless these stay in the ship, you can't be saved.' Then the soldiers cut away the ropes of the boat, and let it fall off. Acts 27:29 WEB

    The crew was gripped with fear as the ship was tossed about by the wind and waves. For fourteen days they had been battered and driven before this storm. Finally some of the sailors decided they would escape using a life boat, but Paul told them that if they did not stay on the ship, they would all die. They cut away the boat and they all made it to safety on the island of Malta, where God used Paul to perform many miracles.

    Sometimes you need to stay the course that God has put you on and cut loose the things that are dragging you back. Let it go. Let them go. They would have never fulfilled God's plan in their life if they had not cut the ropes and let go of that boat. They would have died while holding onto it. If something is holding you back, and you feel God is wanting you to get rid of it, cut it loose and let it go. Trust Him to take care of you.

    When they don't want to be around you, there are those waiting that do. You are a child of God, not a door mat. When the door closes to a job, there is a better door getting ready to open. When you feel all alone, you are not, for He is right there with you. If you only knew how much He loved you, your life would never be the same.

    Is your past chasing you? Cut it loose and let it go. Today is the first day of the rest of your life and God is interested in your future, not your past. It is not too late. You can do this and He will be with you through it. Sometimes we have to brace ourselves and head right into the storm in order to get where we need to go.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please strengthen me today and help me make the right decisions. I want to do the right thing. Forgive me of my past mistakes and guide me into Your perfect will. With You by my side, I can face anything. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Oh how hard it is to let it go. It takes all the faith in God we have to step over the barriers that keep binding us. Even when we do, we waiver and doubt ourselves, and step back into those binding chains. If only...we had the strength and patience to wait for Our Heavenly to show us the goodness He has planned for us.

Faith...strength...endurance...patience...trust...

God is clearly not interested in your past, if I am any example and I am. I do not have words to express how many things I have let go of over the years! God has a better plan!

Prayer: Heavenly Father please strengthen me today and help me make the right decisions. I want to do the right thing. Forgive me of my past mistakes and guide me into Your perfect will. With You by my side, I can face anything. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen...Letting go can be hard...I've let go of most everything now with little left to give up...Yet there is always something more to let go of still... I would do it all over again kbowing God has chosen us to be on this path. We have learned a lot of valuable lessons and learned to whom we can count on in our times of need. It has been a humbling experience and we are grateful to all who have been praying and helping us through. WE will smog the jeep today as someone will be buying it tonight <3 This will leave us without transportation for a minute while we search for the perfect RV / Travel trailer - truck combo that will be our new home on wheels. I am excited and scared all at the same time! BUt I know God has guided us and protected us every step of this journey, and with out letting go>> things might have turned out way worse... without letting go of our jeep, we would not be able to hope for an upgrade.  Thank you Pastor. God bless

Amen! Let go - stand fast - trust the Lord!

One of my favorite verses in the Hl. Bible comes from Proverbs, chapter 3, v. 5 & 6 "Trust the Lord with all thine heart and lead not unto thine own understanding, but in all thy ways acknowledge him and He will direct your path"

HE will and HE has, praise His Holy Name!
