"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: the old has gone, the new is here!" 
2 Corinthians 5:7
We are redeemed and made new, through Jesus Christ.
I used to say, "yes, I know this, but..."
- But the past still hurts .
- But I just can't let go of x...y...z...
- But (insert here)
Lately I have been studying 1 Samuel. Hannah was BROKEN. She hurt. The Lord closed her womb. Still there was no "but...". She continued to pray. She continued to trust in His plan. Despite the mockery and ugliness thrown her way. She knew her VALUE. And God honored her prayers. He OPENED her womb. 
If you are feeling broken. Feeling like your prayers are going unheard. If it seems like your past is mocking you. That the wounds are so deep they are never going to heal. 
We already have the victory!! (1 Corinthians 15:57) it may not seem like it right here and now. But we do!! Despite your brokenness, you are BEAUTIFUL, STRONG, LOVED, MADE IN HIS IMAGE, and WORTH DYING FOR!!
