Advice

A piece of advice you have for others. Anything at all.





I am going to keep this short and simple. My advice for today is simply to not let your past hold you prisoner. I was bitter about my past for a long time, and now that I am older I realize how much it weighed me down. I was constantly holding grudges or getting down on myself for things I had done. This accomplished nothing, except for hurting me.

When I met Jesus, I realized that no matter how much I thought my past mattered-- it doesn't. Not even a little. I used to hate when people would say this, but I am so renewed. Jesus truly saved me from some dark times, namely my past.  Whatever point you are at in your life, I would encourage you to forgive yourself and others for what happened in the past, just as Jesus would. Your future holds too much for you to let your past ruin that. Let yourself be renewed, free from your past.

  1. Couldn't agree with you more. Holding grudges does nothing but hurt you. It's easier said than done to not hold a grudge against someone. It's a struggle, but I feel like with Jesus, its possible to give it all up to Him :)

    As for a piece of advice, I would say think before you speak or act. It would save me a lot of trouble if I took my own advice :)
