So often we don’t want people to see our scars. I believe (and have seen in my own life multiple times) that God wants to heal the ones on the inside and out, so He can display His glory through your weakness.
I don’t know what kind of scars you have but I’ve had them ever since I was a kid when I struggled with my weight and stretch marks. Now, I see every scar I’ve gotten in a completely different light because I see how God brought me through every season to healing and spiritual growth.
I’ve got multiple on the abdomen from things like gal bladder, appendix, endometriosis removal and then more on my shoulder, not to mention a long line on my right forearm. Those are just the outside ones. Inside ones include healing from my parents divorce, my father’s death, my obsession with weight, my addictions to food, alcohol and running, my relationship with my mom, and my body from infertility. All of this healing, because of God’s faithfulness.
I believe if you listen to this podcast, God will reveal to you how He wants to heal your scars and make them beautiful.
