March forth! Keep moving! Don’t get stuck in the past! We are a product of our past; our mannerisms, personality, and heart, are shaped by our experiences. May it never be said of me that I have become the vile person that sin has caused. Believe me, we have all experienced hatefulness, rejection, and harm that was caused by others. I always try to remember that the person causing the pain are also in pain, and a product of their experiences. Who hurt them so badly that they must lash out at those around them? It is up to me to get beyond my past, and also to not allow the feelings of others to reflect upon me; their feelings belong to them - this is when you need a Teflon shield to protect you from letting negativity penetrate to your heart. Cry out to Jesus; he is your protection. It is Satan’s goal to keep you offended and in the chains of rejection, don’t let him win.
There is a lot of hand washing going on right now because of sickness and disease; cleanse your heart from the filth of others, just like you’re cleaning your hands; don’t let someone’s emotional disease infect you.
"Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life." Proverbs 4:23
