5 Ways to Know It’s Time to Let Him Go

He’s controlling

Is he dominating?

Does he have the need to control you and take hold of everything in your life and his? Or can he give his control to God and trust in Him? 

If you’re dating someone, he must love you enough to give you the freedom to be who you are. If he is controlling you, you will never have the freedom to find who are and grow in Christ. Opportunities will be missed and you can miss your purpose and calling from the Lord.

In a past relationship, I was controlled; what I ate or drank became a problem and even what I would wear, or who I wanted to hang out with. This is red flag and if he is controlling you, then you need to let Him go and take Christ’s control instead of his.

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” (Proverbs 3:5)

Wow, am a daughter of a king and shouldn’t be treated otherwise

So mamy women want to be first, or the only. They really don’t understand that a man’s relationship with God is foundational to his relationship with her. I was taught by Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr., that “unless a man loves God, he cannot love you right.” God teaches a man how to love a woman. So, let him love God & choose God over you. If you want God’s best for you, THIS kind of man is it!!!!

Yeah well where are they?? The men I see on FIRE for GOD are already married ?

You have to ATTRACT HIM! You can’t gp LOOKING FOR HIM! Ask God for Him. God knows where he is–the one GOD has created especially for YOU! Be richly blessed!

An excellent article detailing very basic and insightful examples. It was readable, down to earth, and noting true experiences of the writer. However, at times the word “he” was capitalized when referring to the one you should let go. At other times the word “he” was capitalized to refer to God. Also, more than frequently, the author used the semicolon when she should have used a comma. The reading did not flow since I had to reread the phrase to get the meaning she intended the sentence to have. Every person of datable age needs to read and keep in… Read more »
