Today’s Menu: THE SCAR

oranges
“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5)

It was a lovely Sunday afternoon, the whole family sat down for lunch. I wanted to prove I was old enough to cut an orange by myself. Unknown to me, the blunt knife had been sharpened just an hour earlier. I held the knife proudly as I cut my orange into 2 halves. I succeeded, not only in cutting 2 perfect halves of the orange, but also cut through the skin on my left wrist. As I type this devotional, I see the scar and it brings back the memories, even though it happened years ago.

Someone said: “The scar may be the evidence that you’ve been wounded, tortured, afflicted and abused, but that’s not the end of the story;it is also the evidence that healing has begun.

A scar never shows up when the wound is fresh, looking red, sore, and very painful. No matter how deep, how wide, how tragic a wound is, it may take time, but still it would heal and be replaced with a scar, big or small.

Do you have an open wound in any area of life today? Are you nursing a wound presently or gradually recovering from one?

Know beyond a shadow of doubt that “This too, shall pass” and in place of that wound, you’ll find a scar of remembrance telling you that God is faithful and you will sing like Kurt Carr,”For every mountain, you brought me over..for this I give you praise!! Amen.

Our “THANKFUL” countdown to 2014 Begins.

Welcome to another Monday.
