Living Without Crutches

by Joel Osteen

God will bring the right people into your life at the right time, and He'll also allow the right people to leave at the right time. You see, it's God's desire for us to continue to grow in Him and to take every opportunity that's put before us to use for His glory. Sometimes, there are people in our lives that can keep us from being our best and can actually keep us from our God-given destiny. They might tell us we aren't that talented, or that we can't do a particular task, or they might just be doing something that we are supposed to be doing, but we would never get to do that particular thing until they've moved on in life. By seeing change in the right way and realizing when God closes a door it's because He has something better in store, we won't get bent out of shape and have our joy stolen when these changes happen. When a person has served their purpose in our life, if we don't freely let them go, it's going to keep us from the new things God wants to do. Sometimes you might feel stretched, but during these changes, if you'll keep the right perspective, you'll discover new gifts and talents on the inside of you, and you'll find yourself doing things you never thought were possible!
