Beautiful Scars

7:57 AM

In late June of this year I fell and got a one inch cut on my hand. 6 stitches and a few months later it was just a scar. Every time I look at it I remember the pain and hurt that went along with it, but time healed the wound and now it serves as a reminder to be careful when walking or riding near pavement.

It hit me yesterday that God does the same with all of my wounds. I’ve had some heartache over the years, some was through my own bad choices, some was through unforgiveness, and some was brought about by others.

Yet for every heartache, God has brought new healing and love. He was always there loving me, comforting me, and leading me. The scars on my heart bear testimony to the love of God. The wounds have been healed by the hand of an amazing God.

Now when I look at the scars of the past, I can smile. I can now look at them as beautiful examples of Gods love, grace, and healing. They are beautiful scars.

  1. Isn't that amazing how some of the most painful times in ones life can be the most vivid and precious reminders of how far God has brought us and how faithful He is? I have found that to be true in my own life. Scars are painful but in the end can end up being precious reminders...
    Blessings :)
