There will times in our lives when we will have “scars.” These are events which affect our lives in profound ways. Events will occur and challenge us in many ways. The results lingers for a long time, even a lifetime.The events which occur can be so over-whelming that they leave “scars” pain and disappointments that tear at the soul. If we allow them, the pain and disappointments can control us and cause feelings of bitterness and hopelessness.
The scars of life will come, but they need not remain. God’s power is greater than the pain that we suffer. God reminds us that He will bring us through the rough times. God is a God of Healing and of restoration. He is able to work all things together for good.(Romans 8:28)What might be painful scars, God is able to turn into bright stars.
We are not promised that we will not to bear scars. The scars come in different forms. There are people who overcome the challenges and move on. Others never move forward and their struggles cause them torment. Those struggle with their scars want healing, restoration, and peace.
The pain of scars sometimes never seem to heal. Are there scars in your life that never seem to go away? Has there been a painful experience that is tormenting you now? Have you wondered if there’s going to be healing and peace? Maybe you’ve struggled with your faith and have wondered why God hasn’t given you peace.
If there is no healing for the hurt and pain, then feelings of hopelessness and defeat remain. We can either allow these feelings to remain or we can rise above these feelings. We cannot do this on our own. God is able to bring us through the dark days. With faith in Him, we find healing for the scars.
God gives healing for the scars that we bear. God first healed the scars that were left by sin. How was this done? He did this through the cross of His Son, Jesus. Through the blood of Jesus, there is healing. Through faith, we have the healing balm of forgiveness and the peace of Jesus.
God is able to heal the scars which come into our lives. God knows what to do with our scars. He won’t let them fester. He’ll bless, heal, and restore us. He’ll turn our scars into stars. He’ll make us shine through all the struggles. When we shine bright, we can give witness to others about the grace and restorative power of God. Let God take your scars and turn them into stars.
