In this video, a girl finds herself in a room full of files. Those files include every single thought and moment she’s ever had. Some are good, some not so much. Some make her happy, others, ashamed. She hates how they make her feel and she tries her hardest to destroy them, but to no avail. Eventually she is visited by Jesus, who holds her and writes his name on all her files with his blood, letting her know how much he’d give up for her.
There are times where I think about what I’ve done in my past, and most of the time, I have a lot of regrets. If I was to ever see a room on myself, I’d most likely want to destroy it all too.
Wouldn’t it be nice to know that near the end of your lifetime, you can recall all your past memories without shame? It’s unlikely, as all of us have had our moments of weakness and times where we haven’t always done the most moral thing. We all have our vices and dark thoughts, ones that can leave us remorseful. Jesus died on the cross for our sins, and after watching this video, I’m going to find it hard to make any actions without thinking about who’s looking down at me and watching. We shouldn’t do anything we wouldn’t want our own children doing. We should live a life we can be proud of. Instead of worrying about the things we’ve done in the past, we should ask God for forgiveness and aspire to be the better person in the future.
