This quote hits me hard every time. And tonight, I had a strong feeling maybe one of you really needed to hear it, too.
I've walked away from some pretty heavy things in my life. I walked away from a university I had committed to, and in turn changed the entire course of my life. I've walked away from bad friendships. Business ventures that weren't meant for me. International traveling opportunities. Commitments that didn't rest well in my heart. I've had my fair share of walking away, even if it was the last thing I wanted to do, and my life has benefited so much because of it.
I don't know what this looks like in your life right now. Maybe there's someone in your life that is draining the life out of you and making you feel unworthy and unloved. Walk away.
Maybe there is a business opportunity that isn't resting well with you and your gut is telling you that it's a bad fit. Walk away.
Maybe your heart is unsettled and the direction you've chosen for your life needs changing. Walk away.
No matter who you are, where you're reading this or what season of life you're in: I give you permission to walk away. You are worthy, you are wonderful and God has plans for you so infinitely greater than the things that aren't meant for you. I've been there, and in some cases I've been completely broken because I walked away. But I'm stronger now because of it, and you will be, too.
