God didn’t want us to hang on to scars, that’s why the body heals. The wounds seal over and the remnants of pain fade. When will we let the wounds in our hearts heal over so that their pain fades? God didn’t make us to be patchwork quilts of pain, He made us to be starfish, when one point breaks it heals and grows a new one, with no memory of the previous self that was lost. Don’t be discouraged, and don’t cling to what God has already been trying to heal in you. Until you let go God can’t seal your wound, because you are working to keep it open. Let Him heal you. It’s okay to let go.
