New Season=Letting go


A little while ago I traveled from the west coast to the east coast all on my own. I packed up as much that could fit in my car and the rest I pretty much had to give away. I'd love to say that I was super happy about the experience and donating things to people that needed it more, but it took some time. Especially my beautiful couch. I had an emotional attachmsnt t to it because it was the first piece of furniture I bought myself in cali. I was heartbroken, tbh.


I was frustrated that so many things I had gotten for myself or my business had to go. I had to remind myself (and so did my parents and my friend) that I had to make room for other things in the future. Better things will come and if God made it possible for me before he can do it again. That is a fact. The thing is many times we hold onto things that

1. no longer work in its best capacity

2. no longer "fit into" our new season

3. or we just don't want to change


The thing with this is that we get so focused keeping that space occupied while still asking for the new blessings. We continuously are dropping or mismanaging things because our hands/lives are full. How can we possibly take more on without causing more damage? it's a tough one.


Confession? I had this one simple wedding dress in my closet. Now here me OUT !... I was not wedding/marriage obsessed at that time (years before then I was). I understand how fashion & wedding dress cost work, sooooooo lol I got it on sale and lots of discounts in the store I previously worked in. It looked more like a rehearsal dinner dress for me but I got it super cheap. My old coworkers convied me to buy it and I thought hey when the time comes this would be great. From the time I purchased it until the day I moved, I only had a model use if for a photoshoot I directed for my business. I never wore it myself not even just for a fancy occasion. Now the dress no longer fits me! I was keeping something that no longer served a purpose, for me. Instead I let that go!


Our emotions and thoughts to certain things can keep us bound. I let go of so much and when I got to my new location, a few people gave me new things. Things I had on my "wish list" or only God knew I wanted. Now granted, I still have a lot to go to get myself fully situated, but I was shocked with the outpour of blessings. If I would have kept the old things, I would be able to neatly store it. I wouldn't have the efficiencies and high quality items, if I kept attached to some of the previous things.


Thinking about it now, some things I purchased in a poverty mindset. What I mean by that is fearing so much in the "lack that I won't have the funds" to get something like this again OR BETTER! Some of the items were not even top of the line or worth fighting God over. But I trusted in potentially repeating the same financial struggle in a way over GOD! WHEW. ridiculous right?

We all do it in some way or another.


You want to know what happened?

Someone in my new location gifted me VARIOUS higher end kitchen items. TO the point im like wooooowww I don't even have to struggle prepping items and washing the items with this. I was able to save time and struggle!! I didn't expect them to give me that. I had known them for less than a month. When God tells you to let go of things....or *cough* people... listen.

You do not know what is waiting on the other side of your obedience .


I challenge you to examine what God is asking you to release, whether physically or emotionally/mentally. Ask yourself why do you think God is directing you to do that and why you are struggling letting it go. Then pray for God to guide you in this process. Jot down what you will do to keep yourself accountable in not picking it back up.

Let's not stay in the poverty mindset. God is the Lord of Lords and king of kings.


Scripture to reference <3

Matthew 6:26-34 NIV

26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]? 28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
