Natural and spiritual wounds have a tendency to leave scars. However, it’s important to note that in both cases, remnant scarring tells the story of our lives. Steve Maraboli said, “My scars tell a story. They are a reminder of times when life tried to break me, but failed. They are markings of where the structure of my character was welded.” I have learned that scarring doesn’t form on dead people! This simply implies…..it could have been worst!! In fact, our scars eventually become beacons of light for people who are treading the same waters that you once treaded. In other words, if allowed, our scars can transform us into God’s warriors on behalf of others. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with living beyond yourself! Scars remind us that we are amongst the living but more importantly they remind us of our need for a Physician. Only the Great Physician can turn our ugly wounds into a scars of beauty. Only He can heal the pain and sin in our past and make us whole again. David said in Psalm 147:3, “He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds.” Our Lord is not only a Builder, but a Healer; he restores broken hearts as well as broken walls. Scars are merely life lessons that no longer need to bleed!
