I have a lot of scars. Both on my body and in my mind. I used to hate them, but now I am thankful for them.
There is a song that is out right now called, “Scars”…. and its says…
“So I am thankful for the scars,
because without them, I wouldn’t know Your heart,
and I know they’ll always tell of who You are,
So forever, I am thankful for the scars.
Now I am standing in confidence,
With the strength of your faithfulness,
And I am. not who I was before,
I don’t have to fear anymore.”
My goodness that song is so beautiful and has become sort of a theme song for me.
So just think about this…think about your scars…mental and physical. Think about how, when you were going through whatever it was, how badly it sucked. Yeah, I know. But, here’s the cool thing…God was with you the whole entire time. Right next to you…holding you. You just had to open your eyes and heart to see and hear and feel Him.
At this point in all of our lives, we ALL have scars, shame, doubts…but the one thing that you should never doubt is where God was during all of this. Cause he was right there. It is your choice, whether or not to feel that…but I will tell you that life will be much different if you get it.
My scars have changed me. They have shaped me. They have molded me into who I am today. They are my battle wounds that say, “Guess what, I won!”.
So the next time you look at yourself in the mirror and want to hate your scars on your body or in your mind or in your heart…look at them a different way….
They are proof that God is and was with you and together you are tough as Fu*k.
