"A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit."
There is a saying that whatever is on your mind, soul and heart, it will reflect on your face, actions, and words. Looking back to my old life, I can say that I have been good hiding those things behind my beautiful mask. I can smile and pretend that I am okay, because I feel that I am okay, well maybe not but what amazes me is that even though I am not worthy to wear these smiles and enjoy life with the best people around me, still, God allows me to smile and face the world.
I realized that if we will hold on to our heartaches and problems, it will not really help us. Having a broken soul and heart will lead us to disappointments and discouragements. But since I let go of those things and let God worked in my life without any hindrances and second thoughts, things changed and even though everything seems so hard,I decided to enjoy every hardship.
Like fire tests the purity of silver and gold (Proverbs 27:21), and so will God will make me pure through the fire that someday I may become like a silver and gold.
