Let It Go

This may surprise some, but I love that song (and the movie). However, I had in mind another source for this post, than the one of which the title reminded you.

I suppose all of us have negatives in our lives, from circumstances to acquaintances. The apostle Paul acknowledged such negatives in his own life. He identified Timothy and Epaphroditus as two bright lights among many negative people in his own life; people who “seek after their own interests,” people he called “dogs,” “evil workers,” “the false circumcision” and “enemies of the cross” (Philippians 2:19 – 3:19).

Two points about this text will help us overcome the negatives in our lives. First, we must “let it go”; we must forget what lies behind and press on to what lies ahead, the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus (3:13, 14). Second, we must follow Paul’s example and the example of those who walk according to the pattern left to us in God’s Word (3:17). If we do, there is coming a day in our future when there will be no more negatives!

Let it go! You’ll be glad you did!! Remember, God loves you and so do I.
