This past week I heard a song, and I immediately knew I wanted to share it. The song is called Scars, and the first few verses say,
Waking up to a new sunrise
Looking back from the other side
I can see now with open eyes
Darkest water and deepest pain
I wouldn’t trade it for anything
‘Cause my brokenness brought me to you
And these wounds are a story you’ll use
So I’m thankful for the scars
‘Cause without them I wouldn’t know your heart
And I know they’ll always tell of who you are
So forever I am thankful for the scars
Our wounds are a story that God will use. I’m so thankful to know that the pain I have gone through was not in vain.
We don’t have to feel good to trust there is good coming
We don’t have to see evidence of changes to trust that it won’t always be this hard.
We just have to close our physical eyes and turn our thoughts to Jesus.
Fix out thoughts on Him. -Lysa Terkuerst
Here are some scriptures verses about suffering:
For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 2 Corinthians 4:17
Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. James 1:12
Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. Romans 5:3-4
I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. Romans 8:18
If you are in the midst of a difficult season, I hope you know that this too shall pass.
Keep seeking Him!
