If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross and follow me…. Mathew 16:24″

This verse pierced my heart. As I reread the above verse, the Holy spirit whispered to me, “Where is your cross? This question permeated throughout my entire being….”

It was dark and a sombre day in the outskirts of Jerusalem. On a hill just outside the city walls, a Man who’d been attracting crowds of eager followers for the past three years hung in disgrace and unbearable pain on a rough wooden cross. Mourners wept openly and wailed in sorrow. The light of the sun no longer brightened the afternoon sky. And the intense suffering of the Man on the Cross ended when He cried out in a loud voice, “It is finished” — Matthew 27:50, John 19:30

At that very moment, another sound came from the great temple across town — The sound of ripping fabric. Miraculously , without human intervention, the huge, thick veil that separated the outer temple from the Holy of Holies tore in two from top to bottom — That torn curtain symbolised the reality of the Cross….

The deep love that our Lord Jesus demonstrated through His death on the cross frees us from the debt of our sins and opens the way for our reconciliation with God. His forgiveness empowers us to FORGIVE others, as we cannot forgive in our own strength and ask Him to help us. When we love others because our Savior loves them and forgives, because He has forgiven us, God gives us strength to let go of the past and walk forward with Him into a beautiful place of grace.

If you feel like this is you, Leave a ❀ if you will let go of something that no longer serves you. Often times we get so confused of what letting go means. To let go of something that is no good for you, does not mean getting angry or upset. It simply means telling yourself that your values does not align with “that something” and its time to let go and be done with it. And that’s okay.

Blessings and Love…πŸ˜ŠπŸ™


  1. I’ve found that when I genuinely let go of something, it’s not with pain or anger. It’s just certain, confident and done. Maybe not at first. At first, there’s begging, negotiation and struggle. But in the end, if you have a sense of acceptance, it’s really good. I think the important thing is to understand that a β€˜no’ to one thing is most likely a β€˜yes’ to something else.

    1. Thank you Raul. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™I did! To me it was a miracle , plain and simple. Before the darkness whatever suffering Jesus endured was exposed to view – the bruises, the thorns, the nails, the splinter wounds. The 3 hours of darkness was there to hide the silent suffering of Jesus Christ from human eyes – God was there in the darkness, but for a time He forsook Jesus…turned away, showing us the grief of the father….Jesus took the place of the sinner – BUT had to endured 3 hours ‘all of hell’, And when He passed through the darkness, He was able to say, ” It is finished” The work of redemption was done….God bless you.πŸ’•

      1. Indeed in a miracle! I liked that point view. Jesus was numbered or counted with the transgressors as it says in Isaiah 53. Definately the darkness show us the grief in the heart of God. Ill share what God has showed me in His amazing love to us. There is a prophecy in Psalm 18:6-11 where there is an earth quake and then God came down physical there at cross with His Son (not there by the presence of His Spirit) but hidden in darkness “He (God) made darkness His secret place”. Why? 1 Timothy 6:16 that God “no man have seen, nor can see” because God is a consuming fire (Hebrews 12:29), Christ felt even forsaken by His Father (but yet God was there literal), and suffered with His Son to save and saved us then by Hiding Himself in darkness. Christ forsaken but in the end He commited His Spirit to His Father dying in faith that we might live by the faith of the Son of God who love us and gave Himself for us. God bless you too my dear sister!

  2. Very well said. Letting go is setting someone free and giving yourself a favor. πŸ™‚ That’s what I learn in life. It’s for the good of both. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful story.

  4. I really liked reading about ‘your favourite things’ – I like all that too, so natural. Re: this post, I loved the call for action at the end to let go. I let go the hurt I had harboured and felt lighter. Thank you for sharing this.

  5. Thank you for putting words to a story that should shatter any idea that Jesus was not the Messiah. He truly was and the evidence speaks for itself.
    Nice to see another believer who loves Jesus and is willing to share it across the internet.

  6. Hi Chickie
    I love your inspirational posts! This is still me, Tamara, but I am having WordPress issues so my profile looks a bit different. I’m working on it, though.

    I will have more faith, now… just β€œknowing”, and trusting our Great Lord, Jesus Christ!

    Thank you! πŸ’œ

  7. Heart Heart Heart Heart!!! On my computer, and this format has no emoji, so β€œHEART.”
    I want to sacrifice the word β€œExcuse” as delivered in a judgment of another. Christ knew the reasons for humanities plight, and he had nothing but compassion. I got extreme goose bumps when you described the vision of Christ on the Cross. Even writing this, the goose bumps keep returning! It’s a powerful image. I’d forgotten about the torn veil, and it reminds me…Jesus made the way clear.
    I would say, β€œNo more excuses.” I will not make another’s reason into an excuse (judgment), and I will endeavor to only give reasons, and not excuses because God know anyway, and I am reminded…I invited Christ into my heart. He knows my reasons.
    Amen! Thank you so much for this! It’s so powerful what you said…and inspiring.

      1. God has blessed my heart because he sent a message…and a reminder for why our faith rests in Christ. Your heart is blessed by blessing those through its Christ Filled Spirit.

        Thank you so much!

  8. I’m glad that you found me. I’ve been reading a few of your blogs and they definitely resonate with me. All of what you’re talking about is the path I’m on and lately I’ve been filled with much blessings. It took me a lot of heart to believe the things I couldn’t see ( invisible ). I had to really practice on being still and listening quietly to spirit. I remember the verse in the Nicene Creed ” I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.” It just all makes sense. I just had to be patient and trust.
