If the Lord has asked you to let go, why are you still hanging on?
I’ve never seen a baby love a pacifier more than Jaden did. He always had one in his mouth, and one in each hand (not to mention the numerous others laying around). He was never without his binkies.
At one of his check ups the doc told me that it was time to let go of the binkies. That we had a small window of time where he would only remember it for a few days. But if we continued to wait, it would be progressively harder for him to break free of them. That it would also impact his teeth. And finally, that it was best to go cold turkey. So, we did it. It broke my heart.
He cried and cried and cried. Not a tantrum type cry, but a distraught cry. He was looking for his best friends..literally. He looked high and low, but they were gone. He was devastated! But, the doctor was right, after a few (long) days Jaden was over it. He quit looking for his binkies. He didn’t cry anymore. He had moved on.
If the Lord has asked you to let go of something or someone, trust that He knows the timing is right. That this is the appropriate season for change, and that it’s in your best interest. It might hurt immensely at first, but with time you will see that it was the best decision you’ve ever made. Don’t drag it out, go cold turkey.
Jesus said to let our yes be yes and our no be no. There’s no room for maybe in that directive. Follow His leading, and you’ll never be sorry!
