Life hurts. Sometimes it cuts you, and you bleed. You’re left with permanent damage, memories, and pain that just won’t go away. Abuse. Depression. Tragedy. Death. Addiction. Faith in God doesn’t prevent us from having scars like these. In fact, the Lord we follow was pretty scarred up Himself. My guess is that you have scars of your own. They may still be open wounds or even scabs that haven’t yet healed over. So what are you going to do? Through Jesus, we are given access to a living faith and hope and joy and peace and love that gives us power to keep dancing, to embrace the scars, and to know that they don’t define us or destroy us.
