We spend years trying to hold on to relationships that have already died. People and things are in our life for a season. When that season has pasted, let go, keep the laughter and the good memories. Al Green had a hit song “For the Good Times”. Sometimes, we have to bury the dead, cover it, place flowers on the grave and move on. The Bible tells us to “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God.” (Luke 9:60)

The Bible listed Solomon as being a wise man. Solomon reminded us of seasons. “There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under the heavens. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to keep and a time to throw away”. (Ecclesiastes 3: 1-2, 6) People (positive or negative) are in our life for a reason and a season. Things and people in our lives must die for God to carry us into our next season. We can not continue “pouring new wine into old wine skins” (Mark 2:22) If a person is not lifting you up, they are pulling you down. If a person is not for you, they are against you. Some of our friendships are dead weight; which are dragging us down, holding us captive and limiting our destiny. “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith”. (Hebrews 12:1-2)

When God has prophesied over our lives, connected the dry bones, blew breath into us; we are to walk out the “valley of dry bones” and go on in the name of Jesus. God has given us a renewed life and called us to come forth and pull off our grave clothes. God hath given us life and life more abundantly. Stop hanging around with friends in cemeteries and morgues. We have nothing in common with the dead. They can’t speak, hear us or even know we are there. “Let the dead bury the dead”.

Prayer: Father, thank You for blowing breath into our dry bones. Thank You for being a friend and always caring for us.
