There once was a girl, who thought her life was beyond repair. On the outside she seemed to have it all together. Many nights she would look at the sky, and wonder if God really saw her. She wondered if He saw her scars, bruises, and tears. She wondered if He knew all the things she had gone through, and how those things had left her damaged. Feelings of unworthiness, low self-esteem, guilt, and shame, made her feel as though she was beyond repair. Little did she know, He saw her all along. He heard every prayer, wiped every tear, and was mending her broken heart. He was binding her wounds, and healing her bruises. He was transforming her into a trophy of grace.
So many of us can relate to that story. We’ve been in places in our lives where we’ve been bruised. We’ve experienced brokenness, and we’ve shed tears. We’ve prayed prayers, and wondered, if God was even listening. We’ve wondered if He truly saw us. Beautiful soul, He sees, and hears, you. He knows the things that burden you. He knows all about the things that makes you cry. He knows what keeps you up at night. He knows the details of everything you’ve gone through. He is a healer, and our keeper. There is nothing like the grace that He pours upon our lives. He invites us to sit at his feet, and rest in His presence. He “WILL” take you as you are, scars, and all, and turn you into a trophy of grace. He wants your life to be a testimony of His power, and truth, to every ear that will listen. Life is so much more than what you are seeing. I pray that you would search your heart, let down your guard, and remove your mask. Allow Jesus to touch your heart, and heal your wounds. He is faithful, and He loves you more than anything. I am a testimony of His goodness. I know the power of the cross, and am a recipient of His grace. That girl in that short story was me. So, to every ear that will listen, to every heart that will believe, you are not beyond repair, you’re just damaged. He is willing, and able, to transform every aspect of your life, and transform you into a trophy of grace. He is able, He is willing, & He is waiting.
