It has always been there, wanting to stay in the stillness of our broken hearts. It's something that wouldn't go no matter how hard we try to forget. It's something that always comes even closer to the moment we try to chase it. It's the four letter word.. "PAIN". Have you ever feel it's intense power? Like you hurt so much inside, that you can't breathe, you can't sleep, and no matter how hard you try, you just can't stop the tears from falling? I bet most of us or, should I say, all of us have felt it. Unfair as it may seem, but that's reality. We are bound to get hurt, we are bound to shed tears and be broken. Pain, heartbreak and tears are inevitable for us because we are not perfect. They are always part of our existence as human beings. Yet, they become our training ground to become better persons in the future. People can be who they are because of their experiences and exposures, and those experiences deal with failures and successes, accomplishments, blamable mistakes, that make them who they are at present. Whatever the things that bother you now, whether a past failure or a present realized mistakes, learn to accept, acknowledge, and deal with it, then let go of it! Letting go is indeed so hard to do, yet it's possible if you'll believe in it's life changing power. I believe letting go is an art, an art of accepting things as they are, of learning the wisdom to know the difference and weight of things, and of recognizing the unchangeable facts and lessons hidden behind every situation, and that's is it's power itself! Letting go opens a new door for new things, new discoveries and new people to get along with. Moreover, we can never stop summer from turning into fall because life has it's own season, and each season of our lives has something to tell us - something that makes up who we really are, lessons we need to learn to serve as our strength in facing tougher challenges in the upcoming years, and to teach us to become perfect fighters and lovers. Those painful things that happened in our past can no longer continue to hurt us if we would no longer hold back the anger and pain, and if we learn the art of letting go. Moreover, past will continually dwell in the past; it will end there, only until there. Philippians 3:12-13 says that, "I have not yet reached my goal and I am not perfect, but Christ Jesus has taken hold of me so I keep on running and struggling to take hold of the prize. I don't feel that I already arrived, but one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead." God has a perfect plan for our lives. All we have to do is offer our lives to Him wholeheartedly and trust completely to His will. God never does anything accidentally and He never make mistakes. Nothing in our lives is domineering. Everything has it's reasons and purpose. God has reserved something special for us in the near future.. so, no matter how painful our past is... LET GO, MOVE ON AND SHINE..!!! =)

I do agree with you, God has a purpose why things happened. Everything happened for a reason because He want us to be strong and to have faith in Him. I don't know what my future holds but I know who holds my future in me and that is GOD. I know my future is good.:)We should Trust him and not only lean in our own understanding coz in all, all of our ways we should learn how to ACknowledge Him and He will make our path straight.
