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.
You shouldn't 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.
If you are holding on to something that doesn't belong to you and was never intended for your life, then you need to...LET IT GO!
If you are holding on to past hurts and pains... LET IT GO!
If someone can't treat you right, love you back, and see your worth... LET IT GO!
If someone has angered you... LET IT GO!
If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and revenge... LET IT GO!
If you are involved in a wrong relationship or addiction... LET IT GO!
If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets your needs or talents... LET IT GO!
If you have a bad attitude... LET IT GO!
If you keep judging others to make yourself feel better... LET IT GO!
If you're stuck in the past and God is trying to take you to a new level in Him... LET IT GO!
If you are struggling with the healing of a broken relationship... LET IT GO!
If you keep trying to help someone who won't even try to help themselves... LET IT GO!
If you're feeling depressed and stressed... LET IT GO!
If there is a particular situation that you are so used to handling yourself and God is saying "take your hands off of it," then you need to... LET IT GO!
Let the past be the past. Forget the former things. GOD is doing a new thing for you. LET IT GO!
Get Right or Get Left...think about it, and then LET IT GO!

I watched this video a while ago , and just fell inlove. It is so deep , && just amazing to hear.
I also posted the poem on the bottom of it . I have been dying to see the movie itself .... but have yet to find it !
I want to be a lost poem in a strangers coat pocket,
that conveys the importance of you.
To assure you of my desire, to assure you of dreams.
I want all the possibilities of you in writing.
I want to give your reflection.
I want your eyes on me.
I want to travel to the lightness with you and stay there.
I want everything before you to follow us like a trail behind me.
I want never to say goodbye to you, even on the street corner or the phone.
I want......I want so much I'm breathless.
I want to put my power into a poem to burn a hole in your pocket so i can sew it.
I want my words to scream through you.
I want the poem not to mean that much.
And I want to contradict myself by accident, and for you to know what i mean.
I want you to be distant and for me to feel you close.
I want endless days when its day and nighttime never to end when its night.
I want all the seasons in one day.
I want the sun to set before us and come up in front of us.
I want water to run up to our waists and to be drenched by the rain up to our ankles with holes in our shoes.
I want to think your thoughts becuase they're mine. I want only what's urgent with you.
I want to get in the way of the barriers and I want you to be a tough guy when your supposed to, like you do already.
And I want you to be tender, like you do already.
And I want us to have met for a reason and I want that reason to be important.
And I want it to be bigger than us, I want it to take over us.
I want to forget.
I want to remember us.
And when you say you love me, I don't want to think you really mean New York City and all the fun we have in it.
And I want your smile always and your grimaces too.
I want your scar on my lips and I want your disappointments in my heart.
I want your strength in my soul, and I want your soul in my eyes.
I want to believe everything you say, and I do.
And I want you to tell me what's best, when I don't know.
And when your lost I want to find you.
And when your weary, I want to give you steeples and cathedral thoughts and coliseum dreams.
I want to drag you from the darkness and kneel with you exhausted with the blinding light blaring on us.

. . . forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
... Be gentle and ready to forgive; never hold grudges. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.
Forgiveness is not a feeling; it's not forgetting; it's not pretending you weren't hurt; it's not trusting the person again; it's not even reconciliation. Forgiveness is a DECISION you make to obey God. No one, not even God can make you forgive someone. You must decide to give up your right to hurt the person back. I forgive those who hurt me because God has forgiven me for the hurts I have caused him. Forgiveness protects the forgiver from himself. Forgiveness cancels a debt like Christ cancelled our debt. God says, "I do the punishing; all I want you to do is the forgiving." Forgiveness is a process, it takes time, but it is an act of grace that reflects God's treatment to us. When I forgive, I release God to work directly on the other person.
When I refuse to forgive, I create a barrier between God and me and I can't pray. When I don't forgive I'm saying that what that person did to me is more important than going on with God.
I know I have truly forgiven when the love of God can flow through me to the person who wronged me. When my decisions are not controlled by the other person's behavior, I know I have forgiven. When I am free from the pain, anger and hatred towards that person and experiencing God's peace, I know I have truly forgiven.

So I havent updated in a while; im rarely really ever on the computer at all which is the reason why. But im going to try my hardest to blog more now. Im pretty new to this so I dont know yet how to fix up the page and all the cool codeing stuff, soon enough I guess I will get the hang of it .
Well today we officially have a new President. I am extremely excited for the new changes to arrive. I feel that Obama is a great person to become our president; in my heart I have a gut feeling he will finally make a difference. Thats always a good thing. On the other hand we have to remind ourselves that its not only him that has to make a change, but us. We live in this world too ...and its up to us to make a difference, by doing something differently, by addressing issues and letting our voices be heard. I dont think many people spend there days thinking what THEY can do to make this world a better place. I honestly dont do it much; so I know theres many other people out there distracted in there own mess, there own situations that dont have the time either. But by just saying something to someone, speaking your opinion you can make a difference.
For me; God has always been number one in my life. I feel like yes we can change the way we act , the way we think, the way we talk. But without the grace of God ...none of that will even matter. We have to have faith on our Lord, Our Savior that he is so faithful to us that he will make ends meet, and fix things for us . But in order for him to help us , we have to keep him in our hearts in our minds always. Im not a religious person, but I consider Jesus as my boyfriend..the lover of my soul. Without him nothing in my life would be possible. I do things according to how I think will affect him. When your in a relationship with someone you do stuff out of respect for that person , because you love them that much. Which is why I changed my ways and the bad habits I once had ...for Jesus. Just like any loving and careing boyfriend; He did not want me to keep being that girl coming home drunk at the end of every night, and wakeing up to not remembering what happened. The girl that felt so lonely, and so out of it all the time. I looked to other things to fill my void ...and realized nothing was really filling it . It was all a temporary fix, until I let Jesus into my life. Now I dont feel that emptyness anymore. To some it might sound funny, some of you might not believe such an effect can happen .... but with him in my life I am nothing but happy ... and I have honestly never been like this before I let him in. I believe in him, and I trust him with every piece of my broken heart that he is slowly mending and putting back together. When you have Jesus in your life you have no what ifs , or regrets ..you know that God has something new for you , once one door closes there is another one about to open... and if there isnt ... then trust me he will open a window for you. I dont need to be in doubt anymore because I know he is watching over me , and that everything I go throught I am going through with him. What he puts me through , he takes me out of ...Just to learn a lesson , and then on to another ... they say everything happens for a reason, and I fully live by that phrase.
But yes I caught myself ranting ...and I switched up the subjects a bit LOL. But I promise more blogging soon ,
hopefully I will be getting the hang of it !
