Letting Go Of The Past

Thursday, August 11, 2011





Just today I came across this video. I hadnít listened to it in a very long time. My life has been so busy with grief, trying to change situations that I had no control of and always falling short and ending up hurt even more. Just the other day my granddaughterís cat had babies. Now she could have delivered them anywhere, however she chose my room. 3:00 am, my usual intercession time with the LORD. Was I praying? No! I was sleeping from sheer exhaustion from over working myself trying to forget the loneliness I had been in bondage to since my husband left seven months ago.

Then this birth happens and ONLY today am I enlightened as to the Spiritual meaning behind it all. Muffin had 4 babies; she knew where she would be safe from the dogs so she came into my room. All night worship music plays or the bible on CD. I may sleeping but other warm blooded blessings are awake. I was taught and I am a firm believer in the power of prayer, worship music and even the anointing that does not rest just because we do.

My granddaughter wanted kittens. She had been asking for one for quite a while. We had no idea Muffin was pregnant, until it was too late. Well, Grace got her wish times four and I got the greatest blessing from all of this. How many times have I neglected over these past seven months to just sit and take a moment to recall the goodness of the LORD in my life? How many times had I missed those precious blue eyes looking into mine and asking me, ďHey Grandie you wanna go find some lizards for my zoo?Ē How many times had I turned her down and neglected to see such a distraught little face call the dog and go out with him?

A ton of bricks could not have been heavier than my own conviction and remorse. Grace has four kittens and on my 48th birthday she gave me one, his name is Elisha and he reminds me that I too need to sit at the Masterís feet and learn some more. That time passes by so quickly and what we miss in our daily lives we cannot get back. Time is precious and I needed to spend more time looking at those things that I can change and embrace the fact that whatever I lost, whatever left was apparently not needed because God did allow itís departure.

Grace has been my inspiration for a very long while. God always gives me such great, deep revelations about life and He puts it in such a simplistic manner than even a child who is autistic can comprehend Him. Oh how I missed those heart whispers. I decided yesterday, I only get just one time around I only get one shot at this, one chance to find out the one thing that I donít want to miss and from now on Iím going to live it in the present and let the past go.

I sit in awe of the priceless treasures that God sends across my path so many times in a day. Iíve decided, no more neglecting them or Him!

Ask yourself today, what have you been missing out on? What simple treasure from the Fatherís heart has slipped by without your knowing? Do what I did, LORD show me, LORD help me to see You in those simple ways. LORD open the eyes of my heart and show me ME! Change is good! Embrace it!

YOU READY ?....I JUST FILED FOR DIVORCE....DIVORCING MY PAST..DIVORCING MY PAIN...DIVORCING DOUBT...DIVORCING SET-BACKS..DIVORCING LACK...THE JUDGE JUST GIVE ME FULL CUSTODY OF MY DESTINY...FULL CUSTODY OF MY CALL...FULL CUSTODY OF MY LIFE...DIVORCE YOURSELF AWAY FROM YOUR PAST SO YOUR FUTURE CAN BE RELEASED...YOU READY...{ Demetrius Aldridge }

Have A Glorious Thursday!
