All throughout our lives we’ve been told:
1. Crying is not allowed.
2. Keep your pain to yourself.
3. Never let others know your weakness.
We live in a world that calls failure a weakness, and weakness a flaw. We are taught to mask the truth because, “it’s better if you keep that to yourself”. And that the best way to lead is from our strengths, not our weakness.
If I can be honest, I think our world has built itself on a shallow and narrow foundation that is ready to break at any second. I know this is just my opinion, but I think I have a pretty valid point to stand upon.
I believe in a God of Grace, love, and second chances. And if it wasn’t for those divine qualities all working together, I can promise you that I wouldn’t be standing here today.
I’m not proud of my past, but I wear my scars on my sleeve because I am proud of who I’ve become in Christ. Those scars remind me that with God I can conquer all things, and that through Him healing is possible.
My failures and mistakes are NOT my most treasured moments. But, because of His Love, I am now a living testimony of His redemption and grace. Guess what? So are you.
Your story is His glory. Share it to the world.
Don’t hide your scars, wear them as proof that God heals.
