We’ve all had things happen to us. We’ve all had bad situations occur. But after it’s over, do you move on from it or do you hold on to it? Have you forgiven the person that hurt you? Have you let go of the bad memories of the past? What are you holding on to?

Sometimes we feel stuck and don’t know why. Sometimes we feel like something is holding us back. Have you ever just taken inventory of everything that is going on in your life? If you do, you will find that you are holding on to things that occurred in the past and you haven’t moved past them. We all do it. That man that hurt you so badly that’s all we can think about. Or the woman that left you for someone else. The job promotion that you were sure was yours but you got passed up for someone else. These are all things that get us stuck in our heads and unable to move on. I have some advice. Give it to God and move on!!

God can do more with it than we can. In Psalm 55:22 David tells us, “Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous be shaken.”  In Matthew 11:28, Jesus tells us, “Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” If you’ve ever given anything to the Lord, then you know how much peace you feel afterward. It’s so freeing and you will soon be able to move on. It’s not easy nor is it quick. But trust me, if you take the first step I promise God will do the rest.
