A few months ago I was diagnosed with Cancer.
This is not my first Battle and it won’t be my last.
Every Battle I’ve been through makes me stronger in my Faith. “Don’t be afraid or discouraged, the Battle doesn’t belong to you it belongs to the Lord. 2 Chronicles 20:15
When I went for my check up last week the Doctor was happy to report that they got all the cancer and all my results looked good. Thank you Jesus! However the Doctor was discouraged at how the scar looked. I had an allergic reaction to the sutures so it left a scar that will be very noticeable in the front of my neck. He offered to redo the incision with cosmetic surgery so I wouldn’t see the scar.
I thought about it for a split second and then I said “No thank you, this is just another battle scar that shows I ‘ve won the battle and I have the Victory in Jesus!
I am a Survivor! What hasn’t killed me has made me stronger.
I have overcome years on a deathbed of chronic pain, sickness and incurable diseases, physical, emotional, mental and sexual abuse. I’ve been beat down, pushed down, slandered, lied about, stepped upon and spat upon. I’ve been through dozens of surgeries that have left my body filled with scars.
BEHIND EVERY BATTLE SCAR IS A STORY OF VICTORY. THESE SCARS ARE MY ROAD MAP TO HEAVEN THAT SHOW THE BATTLES I’VE WON ALONG THE WAY.
I’M A WARRIOR FOR GOD. I’VE OVERCOME BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB AND THE WORD OF MY TESTIMONY. NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST ME SHALL PROSPER.
My scars are part of my story. I choose to keep my scars, that they may be used to give God Glory and give others hope in Jesus.
Jesus kept His scars. They were the first thing he showed to his disciples after His resurrection.
His scars proved He was victorious. Look at His hands. Look at His feet. He wears those scars for me and you. The nail print scars from his crucifixion are still there. Jesus still wears our scars in Heaven.
Hallelujah! Praise the Lord and Share the Good News!
