Your scars have meaning too

...Present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
— Romans 12:1-2

It is not easy to look at my mess, to look at my scars and my pain, to look at a mangled pile of my heart and scream out "ABBA... FATHER!" But when we do... When we do THAT is when we offer ourselves up as a living sacrifice. THAT is when Jesus can kneel down and say, "Daughter, look at Me. I have scars too. Though the memory is painful to my core, my scars have meaning. My scars have purpose."

He pleads, "Daughter, please! Look at my hands, touch these scars, they at real. I need you to know that your scars have meaning too, your pain has purpose too, and daughter, if you let me, your worst memory can be redeemed just as mine was. The world told me that I was broken too, but look! Look and Me, daughter."

Lauren, here! I'm so grateful to Hailee for sharing her heart. Going through life means inevitably having scars. But our scars have great meaning and they contain purpose! God can use them, He can teach us through them, He can remind us with them. And most of all– He can redeem the injury that caused them.

Going through infertility is HARD. But be encouraged that God can redeem this!
