Scarred!

Posted on May 16, 2018 at 4:55 AM

I sat listening to the story of a beautiful young woman who at age 17 was horribly burned over 40% of her body in a chemical accident. Her story of courage and redemption so touched my heart! There she stood with scarred body and face; dreams of being a model and actress gone forever. . .   Perhaps the worldly version of the dream containing surface beauty would never be fulfilled, but where does true beauty exist?



This lovely child of God dug down deep into her scarred body and soul to find true worth. The worldly solution to assuage the pain was the attempt to drown it in alcohol; but the enemy’s solution only brought depression. Her friend led her back to the Savior Jesus who always welcomes us in any condition when we come to Him. She gave Him her heart, her soul, her whole being and He gave her supernatural love, courage, and the ability to bring hope to others.




Teary eyed she stood in front of the audience revealing her inner struggles and the distress of her family. She also related as she emerged out of the depression, looking into the mirror she began to see Jesus’ reflection rather than disfigurement. Her worth was huge in the eternal perspective. This led me to question myself. How important is physical perfection to me? What do others see when they look at me? In a society that worships youth, do they judge me as too 'ancient' to have value?



 


Now this old tree stands proudly displaying its wounds in plain sight. I realized that it is the scarred trunk that brings a peculiar beauty to this magnificent warrior.


Who do I see when I look into the mirror? Before I frowned at all the wrinkles and discolorations of age, but yesterday for the first time I did not care. I said, “Lord, You will use me as I am. As the moon reflects the light of the sun, I want my countenance to reflect the light of joy I find in You. Let others see You when they regard me. I submit myself to You.”


Who do you see in the mirror? Where do you find your worth? What struggles of self worth are you dealing with today?

This design is steller! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Excellent job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!|

Hello! I realize this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask. Does building a well-established blog such as yours require a lot of work? I am completely new to operating a blog however I do write in my diary everyday. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!|

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I found this in my search for something regarding this.|

I in addition to my pals have been taking note of the great tips on your web site while quickly I got a terrible suspicion I had not expressed respect to the web blog owner for those strategies. All the boys ended up so happy to learn them and now have truly been taking advantage of those things. We appreciate you really being considerably helpful as well as for deciding on such very good themes most people are really eager to be informed on. My sincere apologies for not expressing gratitude to sooner.

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
