The good book tells us to stay away from every kind of evil (1 These 5:22). Knowing this, it is important for us to recognize that evil also comes in the form of accusations, judgment, and unforgiveness.
Your past may include a multitude of poor decisions and mishaps made on your part. Nevertheless, those were events, and they don’t have to be a prison sentence.
To be liberated from the pain of yesterday you must make a conscious choice to forgive yourself and break free of the bondage of shame. As you walk in your new found freedom,you will need to clearly define and choose who you will be from this day moving forward. If others choose to be imprisoned by your past, let them. As for you… Feel free to let go and be all that God created you to be.
