Who you are and are claiming to be, cannot yet be validated until you have gotten some scars!
What have you gone through?
What have you endured?
What have you survived?
The things we often deem as bad and hurtful are the very things that gives us our stripes.
Those seemingly bad things are the things God is and will often use to glorify His name.
Often times we complain and get frustrated when we feel we have gone through enough and are not able to perceive what God is doing, but truth be told, we have not yet gone through anything if something greater was not produced on the inside of us.
Can I tell you? Your scars makes you authentic.
This morning, I thank God for my life, I would not have it any other way.
I TRULY am grateful for the things the Lord has taken me through.
I thank God for the “bad’ and the “ugly”!
I am most grateful, because I now know God in a way I did not know Him, and that is something I am grateful for.
I thank God for the things I may at one point scuffed at or got frustrated by.
I thank God that He loved me enough to take me through what I should really never survived.
I thank God that He means what He says and what He says, is what He will do.
God is AWESOME!
Good morning world!
