We are more 

than what has happened

 to us.

Most of us have dealt with outer scars

 that can be physically seen, 

and some of us know all about inner turbulence 

that has plagued us for years 

and left scars that no one sees.  

Embedded in some of our scarring... 

we will have stories of elation, 

deep hurts, discomfort, agony, despair, 

disappointment, endurance, lessons learned

blessings, and messages 

that can help us to grow in grace 

and empower healing in others.

None of the scars on us or in us are in vain. 

The scarring means that the healing process

 is in progress,

and those painful wounds 

are turning into scars.

We are healing!!!

God has a way of using our first hand experiences

so that onlookers can come to realize

 the grace of God 

on full display... through us.

There is a bigger picture to consider 

than our momentary discomfort.

“Jesus, the Author and perfecter of our faith, 

who for the joy set before Him...

endured … ” 

Perhaps this was behind James’ exhortation to 

“Consider it pure joy 

whenever you face trials of many kinds 

because you know that 

the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 

Let perseverance finish its work 

so that you may be mature and complete, 

not lacking anything.”

 (James 1:2-4)

If nothing else, our scars have the potential 

of making us wiser and better people.

So, without counting the many trials which are behind us,
let us embrace our scars and allow God to use them 

in the lives of others.

May we look forward to 

the beautiful days which lie ahead,

and count them all joy.
