Looking into the mirror, it is so easy to focus on what mars my skin,
but You reassure me You look deeper within…
“She don’t see her perfect, she don’t understand she’s worth it or that the beauty goes deeper than the surface. So to all the girls that’re hurting – let Me be your mirror, help you see a little bit clearer the light that shines within.”***
My idea of beauty has been influenced by the world about me and doesn’t reflect Your idea of true loveliness.
You whisper to my spirit that my healed wounds make me beautiful for they increasingly shape me into Your beloved Son’s Bride.
Your touch heals, and leaves a mark as it sears my wounds…and the result is not only wholeness but a scar.
Scars are the evidence of Your touch in my life. Each and every one.
And the more I come to You to be healed,
the more scars will result.
As I walk beside You, my Lion, my scars are not only proof of Your healing, but Your love. For You desire for me to become wholly Yours, each and every scar at a time.
