To the One Who has the Scars

Monday, February 3, 2014

To the Savior with the scars, 
Thank You.
Thank you for using that which has wounded
to bring me to a place of wonder
about who You really are.
Thank you for the scars...
Painful as they are.
It is the scars that strengthen.
It is the wounded that wield 
the strongest swords.
Thank You.


-Beautiful sunrises again
-A God that got me through one of the most difficult years of my life.  Today is the one year anniversary.
-Fitting that exactly a year later would be the day to give thanks for all that happened
-That the wounding brought freedom
-A weekend to savor
-An awesome worship service

-Steam rising off the fence from evaporating snow
-That with God not all is lost if you are scarred.  He uses those scars in beautiful ways.
-Strength to stand up
-The support of friends and family
-Reading a new book

-Praying for insight
-Praying for freedom
-A place to belong
-Joy in seeing who my boys are becoming
-Listening to one of my favorite speakers, Bob Goff
