There’s an opportune time to do things, a right time for everything on the earth (Ecclesiastes 3:1, AMP).
A right time to hold on and another to let go (Ecclesiastes 3:6b, AMP).
I think one of the hardest decisions to make in life is whether to hold on or to let go. Maybe it’s easy for you to let go of old clothes, but sometimes it’s not easy to let go of your adult children or a house or a relationship.
When I think back to some of the decisions I’ve made, there were times I held on when I should have let go. Then, there were times I let go when I should have held on.
Lord, teach us to know the difference.
Valentine’s Day is in nine days…
And I know some of you would like to be in a relationship.
And God may send you someone.
And he/she may love you, but no one will ever love you like HIM.
Do you know what it feels like to love a person who doesn’t love you back?
But God wanted you when you didn’t want Him.
He chose you before you chose Him.
And He loved you when no one else loved you.
He didn’t wait until you were easy to love, but He loved you when you were hard to love.
So, if you are single, separated or divorced, please know that you are not waiting to be loved, but you are already loved.
For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).
But God clearly shows and proves His own love for us, by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8, AMP)
But God put his love on the line for us by offering his Son in sacrificial death while we were of no use whatever to him (Romans 5:8, MSG)
While we were wasting our lives in sin, God revealed His powerful love to us in a tangible display (Romans 5:8, VOICE).
