Justin Bieber is thankful to religion for helping him turn his life around after he was arrested for DIU in 2014.

The "Lonely" singer recently uploaded a photo of himself being escorted to jail by a group of Florida police officers.

Bieber wrote in the caption: "7 years ago today I was arrested, not my finest hour. Not proud of where I was at in my life. I was hurting, unhappy, confused, angry, mislead, misunderstood, and angry at God. I also wore too much leather for someone in Miami."

All this, the singer said, is to say that God has brought him a long way. From then till now, he said that he realizes something.

God is as close to him now as he was then, shared Bieber. People are encouraged to let their pasts be a reminder of the great things God has done for them, he added.

Bieber then encouraged everyone to let the forgiveness of Jesus take over their lives, and the light from God will blossom their lives into all that God intended them to be. The Grammy winner capped off his message by expressing his love for his legion of fans.

On January 23, 2014, Bieber, 19 at the time, was arrested for numerous offenses, including drunk driving, driving with an expired license, and drag racing.

Bieber has previously expressed his apprehensions that he would endure hardship during his emotional fight with mental illness.

In his YouTube Originals documentary, titled "Justin Bieber: Next Chapter," the singer said: "There were times where I was really, really suicidal. Like, man is this pain ever going to go away?"

"It was so consistent, the pain was so consistent," he added. "I was just suffering, right? So, I'm just like, man, I would rather not feel this than feel this."

Fortunately, he is in a much good place now. Bieber said he wants to help others and urged everyone not to be afraid to share their pain.

"I want to be the type of person and leader who can tell people, 'You don't have to put on a front," he said. "You don't have to act a certain way. Who you are is enough."

Bieber added: "I feel so just at peace for the first time in my life. I just would encourage people, like, 'Hey, if you're feeling lonely, talk about it. Say it out loud.' There's freedom in that. I could have avoided a lot of pain."

After the documentary aired in October 2020, Bieber assured his fans that he had grown in the last eight months and is now happy and healthy. Watch the documentary below:
