When misfortunes happen in your life, don’t let it hold you down. Don’t allow yourself to be depressed. Stand up! Here’s a beautiful quote for you from Ashley Rice:
Don’t let old mistakes or misfortunes hold you down: learn from them, forgive yourself — or others — move on. Do not be bothered or discouraged by adversity. Instead. meet it as a challenge. Be empowered by the courage it takes you to overcome obstacles. Learn something new every day.
I know, when the wounds are still raw and the pain excruciating, it is difficult to forgive — whether it’s others or even yourself. Forgiveness is easier said than done. If you find it difficult, don’t force yourself. Simply look to God. Tell him your pain and place it all in His hands. Turn your eyes upon Jesus and believe that He can and will make something good out of your brokenness. Place your hope in Him.
Then move on. When you think you have enough strength…go..learn something new today.
