As we process through our past pain, it is important to realize how much of the way we view and interact with the world today is shaped by the things in our past. Our emotions can help us to understand the areas in our past that we need to engage with and the truths and promises of God that we need to apply to those experiences. "He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away." Revelation 21:4
