We all have them. Some are visible, yet, some we can’t see. Sometimes those are the ones that can be the deepest and take the longest to heal.
The scars left on the heart after an emotional battle, the scars remaining from unkind words or the lasting scars of hurtful memories and painful moments.
Scars can be painful. Scars may seem anything but pretty. But, there’s more good found in scars than we realize.
A scar is evidence of healing. A scar appears after healing is already at work. A wound that hasn’t healed doesn’t have a scar. And we all know there’s goodness and blessing in healing.
My scars remind me how God’s sovereign hand is upon my life. It reminds me of His faithfulness and love. It reminds me of His healing power.
They are a part of who we are. They are part of our story. They can be our biggest assets if we allow them to be. Our scars can help others.
Do you have a scar or two on your heart?
You can relate to another who does.
Do you have a scar that is seared in your memory?
You can help someone else whose scar is in hers.
Do you have a scar from a physical injury or sickness?
You can give another hope that is waiting on healing.
We can learn to love our scars.
