Don't waste your pain. None of us escapes the heartache and disappointments of life. To live is to hurt, and we all have the wounds to prove it. Regardless of how we've been hurt, we all face a common question: What should we do with our pain? Should we stoically ignore it? Should we just "get over it"? Should we optimistically hope that everything will work out in the end? If we fail to respond appropriately to the wounds that life and relationships inflict, our pain will be wasted; it will numb us or destroy us.
But suffering doesn't have to mangle our hearts and rob us of joy. It can, instead, lead us to life - if we know the path to healing. Healing is not the resolution of our past; it is the use of our past to draw us into deeper relationship with God and his purposes for our lives. If you're ready to shape a future characterized by love, service, and joy, now is the time to step out onto The Healing Path.

Seriously. Go get anything by Dan Allender now. He has amazing insight in to trauma and how to counsel ourselves and others through the past that has helped to shape us.
"brilliant encouragement to press on "
a brilliant book. strong encouragement to not settle for a life of deadness after very painful trials that we almost all go through at some stage. strong encouragement instead to accept God's fatherly working in our lives and to lean into life, loving God and others
