I have scars. Both physical, mental, and emotional scars. Those will never go away. We all have scars, don’t we? Scars last a lifetime.
You know what else we all have?… the big man up above. He is with us before the scars, during the scar formation, and for the lifetime of living with the scars. This blog post is not about my breast implant illness scars. Technically you could include those scars in what I am referring to, but those are not the scars I am really talking about. Sometimes I wish I could turn back the clock and prevent the scar from even occurring. I am sure as you are reading this you are thinking of a time in your life that you wish you could re-do. We all have those times. We are all human and as humans we are sinners. We hurt those that we love and we get hurt from the ones we love the most.
Scars shape who you are. They mold you. After you are scarred you are no longer the same person you once were.
Is that a bad thing? It certainly does not have to be AND I am telling you that no matter what has caused your scar you should not let that turn you into a bitter, angry, or resentful person.
We are all children of GOD. Don’t we owe it to him to act like it even during our toughest days? I am far from perfect. I have given plenty of scars to others and I too live with scars that will never fade.
This has been heavy on my heart and I wanted to share with you.
Scars are beautiful. Embrace your scars. Love hard. Have no fear.
