Making mistakes is part of being human. But what happens when you allow the mistakes you’ve made to imprison you in condemnation? Obviously we need to learn from the bad choices/mistakes we’ve made but God never intended that our mistakes would limit our ability to live our life to full. In fact our mistakes should be an indicator of how much we need to rely on God’s Word for guidance and seek Him to learn and grow from the past rather than live in condemnation of it. Be honest about where you’ve come from and ask God to turn your mistakes into stepping stones to a better future of choices and decisions.

By keeping your issue a secret you are giving it power to destroy your life while it spreads as a cancer into your thoughts, actions, and relationships. Isolation is the worst way to live a full life, because it convinces a person that no one needs to know, that no one really understands, and ultimately, that no one really cares. That’s not true! Life on life community is the best way for a person to flourish in their understanding of self, others and God. However, when we spend all our energies protecting our secret from the world this mindset can create an independence stronghold that feels true but is a lie really killing you from the inside out.
