Letting Go

Before you think this blog is dedicated to the wonderful song in frozen it’s not :). I hope this blog will strengthen you spiritually and emotionally to help you let go of the past. I know that in my walk toward health, a huge part of it was allowing the Lord to heal my past. The stresses of our past should not shape the outcome of our future. So today let’s just explore how to let go and allow for healing to begin.

How hurt can affect your health:

When we are facing pain that we carry emotionally it directly affects our wellbeing.

  • When we're stressed out and carry around these tough burdens the immune, circulatory, and lymphatic systems are not performing at their best.
  • In the fight or flight mode that stress can cause, our adrenal glands work overtime to keep our hormones and body in balance.

If you’re someone that is chronically tired and feels like they never recover and coffee can’t help either, then this blog is just right for you.

When I began to deal with my emotions and past a lot of my own health concerns cleared up.

Allow the Lord to lead you:

While I grew with the Lord I realized that I would rush ahead of him rather than let him deal at his pace. As I began to mature I realized that as we get into our pasts, they are commonly filled with pain, regret, and are hard to face alone.

  • This is why I would suggest that you ask the Lord to help guide you through this process. The scripture that helped me really understand this concept was Proverbs 20:27 which says The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly.
  • I like to think that the Lord was talking about the belly here because a lot of times our past can dictate what we consume spiritually, emotionally, and physically.

If the Lord begins to help take you through your past, you will begin to see where he was through everything with you.


I want to challenge you with this scripture. Matthew 6:15 says that if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your father forgive your trespasses. When I read this I had some serious reverence instilled in me. Forgiveness was so powerful to the Lord that he was saying he can’t forgive you if you can’t forgive.

When someone has hurt you and you forgive them you are letting go of what they did and asking the Lord to fill you up with himself in that area.

  • There is real power here in forgiveness. This can radically change your life.
  • When we talk about forgiveness we also need to talk about repentance.


Here is what the word says about repentance.

  • 2 Corinthians 7:10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.

This scripture tells us that when we have sinned against the Lord in our repentance we should feel his brokenness so that he can come and heal us and fill those areas in with himself leading to our salvation.

Brokenness is such an amazing thing. A lot of times we want healing without being broken, but I am telling you they are one in the same. Through our tears is where we will find joy.

This type of repentance is a daily walk and you will find that there is a lot of freedom in this walk. The word says that daily we are working out our salvation through fear and trembling.


I know that in my walk I still have a lot of things that need healing. I trust the Lord to take me through those things as he wills. I hope this encourages you to walk in a new found freedom. This, of course, will affect your health in a radical way as a lot of illness we have are due to these things we don’t take care of. I hope everyone has a blessed week.
