I’m Embracing My Scars

A friend of mine posted a status on facebook about scars. She stated that “most want to cover up their scars but the truth is that scars are proof you’ve been to battle and survived.”

It really got me thinking, especially since my whole ministry premise is “No More Bandages!”

What I realized was that even though we get rid of the bandages, it doesn’t mean that a scar won’t remain. Visible or invisible they are there. They are proof that we endured pain. When you get a scratch or sore a scar may form. Sometimes it may heal completely so we can no longer see it. However if it does leave a scar, we can look at it as a reminder of the fact that we are still here. They may have tried to kill us or destroy us, but by the grace of God we made it out.

I often think about my scars. Some I can see and others that are well hidden. I often wonder what my heart looks like. Although I’m out of the different relationships that caused such pain, it has to look pretty worn and scarred beyond recognition. I believe those scars will always remain.

So today I make the decision to wear my scars proudly. To show them off to the world.

Take time to share with others how you received those scars and survived. It just may encourage someone else. Let’s start embracing our scars so that others may see our strength and endurance to withstand anything that may come our way. You are a overcomer and you are healed!

As a final thought, I will leave you with her ending comment – scars, internal or external, are the true definition of a beauty mark.

About nomorebandages

No More Bandages! promotes spiritual healing of the heart, mind and soul. NMB! focuses on, what I call, the spiritual and natural bandages that we place in our lives. A bandage is anything we use to cover up a wound. Those bandages can hinder our growth. Once that bandage is identified, it can be removed, allowing God to begin the healing process. God can heal cancer just as easily as a broken hea rt. It all lies within our desire to be made whole. I am blessed to be able to share my life and the abuse I endured beginning at just four years old. If I help just one person, my hurt and pain is not in vain. We all need healing in our lives.
