Today I had an old memory come to mind. Every summer we used to take a 4 day trip down the wilderness part of the Rogue River. The only way out once you passed the point of no return, was to hike out by trail. I have a lot of wonderful memories of our trips, rowing the boat by the hot sun of the day, and sleeping under the stars by night.


I remember one summer we went down the rapids called Wild Cat and a friend was in the bow of the boat. I was rowing madly because it was a fast one, and had some sharp rocks and maneuvering. I just skimmed one of the biggest and flattest rocks towards the end of the rapids, and it scared him so bad that he stood up in the boat and leaned over towards the rock. This swung us around the thing and planted us right on top of it. Water was pouring into the side of the boat, and he was white as a sheet hanging onto the rock for dear life. My folks were downstream watching the whole thing and my Dad was yelling, but the roar of the water was much too loud to hear anything. I told him, "Please let go of the rock. PLEASE let go of the ROCK. "LET GO OF THE ROCK AND SIT DOWN NOW!!!!!!!" He looked at me in a startled daze and the moment he let go and sat down, we swung around the rock, and I pulled a VERY heavy load of water over to the bank and we bailed for a long time.


I had a revelation today that the Lord has been telling me one layer at a time, “Sandy let go and sit down. SANDY let go and SIT down. SANDY, LET GO AND SIT DOWN NOW!!!!!”


Isa 43:1-2 NKJV

Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine. When you pass through the waters , I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.



It's time now, let go of the huge stumbling stones of your past. Those giant pet rocks, massive stones of offense where you've held onto disappointment from a wounded past; forgive, release and let go. If you hang on, circumstances will so overwhelm you that you will be unable to manage even the smallest tasks. Precious, where I AM taking you - you MUST have peace. It is My peace that will guard you and you must do everything you can to find Your resting place in Me. Move out of the old and into the new, by letting go of everything that has wounded you, and planting the wounds at My cross. Let go of every offense, and let Me move you out and away. What is meant to stay with you, will remain. What is meant to be left behind will not follow.


Heb 12:1-2 AMP

THEREFORE THEN, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the Truth], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us, looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection].


CONFIRMATION:  The following are quotes and notes from Joel Osteen's sermon.


"...As long as we are dragging the pain of yesterday over into this day, we are never going to experience God's best. What's done, is done. You can not undo what happened yesterday. If you made some mistakes, let it go and do better today. If somebody hurt you, forgive. Don't focus on setback and disappointment. God has promised He will bring you a new beginning.


Isa 61:3 Beauty for ashes.

Let go of the ashes, the broken dreams, disappointments, hurts and failures. Turn loose the ashes. Let go of the victim mentality. It is normal to go through sorrow and grieving, it is a part of the healing process. Don't bury it inside. Don't allow a season of mourning to turn into a lifetime of bitterness. You have to exchange, let go and then God will give you the beauty. I refuse to look in the rear view mirror.


Samuel how long are you going to mourn over Saul? Samuel spent years investing. Saul was God's first choice. But He had another plan, and called Samuel to get up and go anoint another king.


Let the dreams go. God has another dream for you. You are not a victim, you are a victor. God will always cause you to triumph. Don't let this make you bitter.


I just lost my job, but I can't wait to see what God has in store. David not only recovered all, he got double.


Isa 60:1-2 AMP

ARISE [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you - rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you! [Zech 8:23.]  2 For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you. [Isa 60:19-22; Mal 4:2; Rev 21:2,3.] ..."
