Dad, My prayers are with you…

My Dad has been diagnosed with SUDDEN DEATH SYNDROME which means he could simply be walking up to get the mail and drop dead.

Today he will undergo a catherization and possible heart biopsy. Then he will have to go back and have a defibrillator implanted in his chest to keep him alive in case his heart stops beating…

“Dad,

My prayers are with you today and I am sure you will make it through without a hitch. There are many people thinking of you and praying for you as well. You have been a strong man all your life and nothing has changed, you will overcome this and be better and stronger because of it. I will be there for you as you have always been there for me.

I love you Dad,

Phil”

Let It Go…

Let it go…

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. I mean hang up the phone.

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 good-bye. It’s the tenth spiritual gift, I! believe in good-bye. It’s not that I’m hateful, it’s that I’m faithful, and I know whatever God means for me to have He’ll give it to me.


 



And if it takes too much sweat I don’t need it. Stop begging people to stay.

Let them go!!
