“Sometimes holding on does more damage than letting go”.
Do you know that many at times we hold on to so much to what God is taking from us, forgetting that he has already finished his own plans in our lives ever before we were born and start making our own plans. I learnt that yesterday in a very funny way. I came across a story of a young man who left his home one early morning to travel to another city for an important job interview. He was the first person in the bus but shortly before departure he decided to use the rest room, he was there for a while and before he came out, another person has been put in his place.

He was very angry and started fighting the bus driver who sold his seat to another passenger. He finally went to the next bus sad and depressed thinking he had lost a big job opportunity. His bus departed few minutes later, but an hour later there was huge traffic because there has been an accident on the high way. The first bus he was removed from had summersulted several times due to brake failure killing every single person on board. His life was spared without him being in support of it. 
We are all guilty of this (including me). We hold on very tight to old glories, not knowing we are ignorantly blocking new blessings. No one said letting go is easy but we need to remember that things fall apart in order to fall into place. Sometimes holding on does more damage than letting go.
Oftentimes God removes us from our comfort zone in order to take us to the promised land. Its never convenient but it’s always for the best. Joseph thought it was over when he was being sold into slavery. What sometimes looks like a miserable ending is actually a beautiful beginning. Some events of life are beyond our control. All we need to do is “Let Go and Let God”.
