When Bob Jones saw the angel named Breakthrough, he said, “Move, move. Move!”  This particular season the Lord has been increasingly calling my heart to let go of more stress in my life and carry less.  Most of it has to do with learning to delegate and only holding on to what I know I am called to do.  When we take assessment of our lives, He begins to pin point the burdens that we carry and helps us separate the clutter and this frees us up to move into the promises and life He has prepared for us.


Today I turned with anointed hands in my Word to Ponder book to the following Ponder:



Within the framework of your home is a certain measure of space allotted for you.  It is within this space that you place your life and all that matters.  What you value in your life is what you store.   Open your cupboard doors, look upon your shelves, open the boxes and peer into your closets.  What do you find?  Moving day is coming and all that you have stored shall be reassessed for use or discarded for trash.  Even as your home collects memories and treasures based upon what you deem important from beliefs and fears, so it is that I clean and purge as I move you into new places.   It’s time to clear out and start packing.


“Remove the dross from silver, and the sterling will be ready for the silversmith.”  (Proverbs 25:4 NLT)


When I just re-read that Word to Ponder, I was actually applying it to how much my TV habits have changed throughout the years in my attempts to honor Him with choices that are edifying and helpful.  I was thinking through the kinds of shows that I deem worthy enough to record and applying that it takes a certain allotted space in the recorder, and also a certain amount of time allotted in my life to watch them. 


CONFIRMATION:  As I was pondering this, I reached for an old book with short stories in them.  In the story, a lady had a hard time keeping her house organized and she belonged to some email list that sent her tips on clearing out clutter that she no longer uses or loves.  She was joking about singing the song, “Please Release Me, Let Me Go.”  The story ended with an acronym, FLY: Finally love yourselves.


I remembered that old song that Dolly Parton performed and realized the Lord was talking to us about letting go of old idols that we had outgrown and overcome but still weighed our souls down.  Read the following lyrics as our heart’s cry to let go of old soul comforts so that we can love the Lord as our first love!



Please release me, let me go
'Cause I don't love you anymore
And to live without love is a sin
So release me and let me love again

I have found a new love, dear
And I'll always want him near
His lips are warm while yours are cold
So release me, my darlin' let me go

Oh please release me, let me go
'Cause I just won't love you anymore
And to live together we both know is a sin
So release me, release me and let me love again

Oh, please, please, please, please
Release me, let me go
'Cause I, I don't love you anymore
And to live together is a sin
So release me and let me love again



I AM strongly moving you into new territory.  You have never been here before.  Yes it is a land full of giants, but the harvest of the land will be yielding your promises, and your way is being prepared for the taking. 


Precious, you can not move in, until you allow Me the completion of that which I began years ago.  Release to Me the places in your heart that are your first loves.  Get rid of the hindrances that weigh heavy upon your soul, your time, your health, your money, your body, your spirit.  Give Me access in each of those storage closets that are hidden.  As I shine My light upon these matters, simply yield them to Me and grant Me ownership. 


If you hold onto your life, you will lose it.  But if you give Me first place and surrender all else to My will, then you will find freedom to fly into your new place.  I AM asking for these things, because I LOVE YOU.  If you release them, you will finally understand that they are not edifying and you will finally learn how to love yourself as I love you.   My love will always set you free.  False lovers will only weigh your soul down.  Let go, My beloved, return to Me!


Hos 2:14-17  NLT

"But then I will win her back once again. I will lead her out into the desert and speak tenderly to her there. I will return her vineyards to her and transform the Valley of Trouble into a gateway of hope. She will give herself to me there, as she did long ago when she was young, when I freed her from her captivity in Egypt. "In that coming day," says the LORD, "you will call me 'my husband' instead of 'my master.'
