Release your Cling

I know I promised a video *covers face* last week but I am sure you will forgive me if I narrated all the happenings between then and now. No time for that though. You can send me a message or call for the gist.

So recently I saw a picture post with the words ‘Don’t Cling to a Mistake Just Because You Spent a lot of Time Making it’. Now pause and read the words again. I am sure one or several incidents come to mind where you did just that and possibly still doing it.
The most recent thought attached to those words happened to me a few months ago. I made several choices which turned out to be mistakes based on a person and feelings associated. At a certain point, I knew it was wrong and I had to get out. It was emotionally draining and psychologically painful but because the mistake was done, I wanted to ‘manage’ it. The process of management was excruciating as I was constantly reminded that this was a mistake. It was always in my face, heart and head.
Grace found me and pulled, pushed and dragged me out though I struggled still wanting to cling to the mistake. Imagine knowing you will be burnt and still walking into fire. That was my case. I held on for as long as I could until grace snatched me, shut the door and destroyed the key. Yes, it was that deep. And no grace is not a person *Laughing*. God’s grace.

Now the error was that I was willing to remain in it, even though I knew it was wrong and that is exactly what a lot of people do. Think about how many people are still stuck to a bad career choice or a relationship mistake they made several years ago. Search your heart. I am quite sure you will affirm what I am talking about. If you have made that choice and got out hurt but happy now, I congratulate you. You are definitely strong. However, if you are still clinging to a mistake, this next paragraph is for you.

NEWSFLASH!!!! It is time to get out of that mistake. It will hurt I know but really it hurts already. A hurt towards freedom is better than hurting with no way out.

Now I tell you one thing, In the end, you will be happy you did. Liberation will be felt and things you thought you could never do will become a walk in the park. 

Have a marvelous week ahead, your testimony awaits you. 


  1. "A hurt towards freedom is better than hurting with no way out" - You just killed it with that statement, Oluwatoni. It's an inspiring read. Keep up the great work. Looking forward to the next post. Please share the gist of why you refused to share the much anticipated video with os oo.

  2. Mistakes get a better part of us, staying in it not only drains us but could get the best we had already guarded & nurtured, needed for life exploits. Beware don't stay in a mistake that will lead to an error. Nice writeup, a brisk piece of advise, got me thinking. Keep up Oluwatoni!
