Relationships

Hang Up

In Isaiah, God says, “Do not consider the former things nor consider the things of old. Behold I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth.”

You are to walk in the newness,which means you must let go of past negatives–ideas, people, and feelings.

Setting boundaries, moving on from toxic relationships, deciding to change,and releasing old patterns and bad habits while learning new and constructive ones requires courage, work, and commitment.

 

Steps to Hang Up

• Hang up when the relationship is controlling, manipulative, intimidating, abusive, or addictive.

• Prepare yourself to hang up by praying, seeking wise counsel, facing the facts, and taking action.

• Set healthy boundaries, refusing to relate to people who tear you down instead of build you up.

• Move up to positive, prosperous healthy relationships after you hang up on the old and embrace God’s new for your life.
