Wounds turn into scars, scars turn into testimonies, testimonies help people to see the work of God today. Not just 2000 years ago.

As I listened to this song I looked down at my scars from when I was a cutter and realized that I should not be ashamed because they are my past and they have made me the person I am today.
The background for my laptop is the quote: Never be ashamed of the scars that life has left you with. A scar means the hurt is over, the wound is closed, you endured the pain, and God has healed you.

55 years of scars, and Jesus called me to God's house.
Now I'm finally healing.
Praise God, they no longer haunt me.
Mandisa, i honestly love your music

I've been struggling with Major Depression & Self-harm for over 3 years, been diagnosed with depression over a year now, and I have scars all over my arm... but with God's love (and my parents) i've overcame self-harm and am now 4 months clean. I listened to this song for such a long time. :)

I know this song means different things to different people. For me it represents the physical scars I've endured. In 2003 I had to have surgery for Crohn's disease. As a young woman (well youngish- I was 33) I struggled after this surgery because I ended up having to permanently wear a bag on my abdomen. Then in 2011 I had to have another surgery but it went horribly wrong. I have had to have 5 more surgeries since to correct the mistake made by the surgeon. It also represents the emotional and mental scars from being physically and emotionally abused as a child and also from being the victim of a home invasion where I had to protect myself and my daughter by shooting one of the men who forced his way into my home. Though it has not been easy, it is through the love of Jesus that I can testify to the Gospel of His grace. These scars remind me to "Count it all joy whenever you face trials of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance." James 1:2-3.

I too am a cutter. I've stopped and began again. I used to think I would never get better. But I have. Im not proud of my scars, nor am I ashamed of them. They are apart of me and made me who I am. They tell a story of my struggle. But now I can look back and say I did it, I made it through. I am now a symbol of recovery. I am a more optimistic and string person now because of the pain I've been through. And I am truly grateful! Stay strong t anyone struggling with self harm or depression, etc. You are loved.

Glad I went through the pain. It made me that much stronger and faithful to God. He turned my pain into a blessing and he'll do the same for you.

I cut for years I'm turning 14 on 2-15-16. um I will be about 9 days clean if I can keep clean till then. but I have always know God was there I just ha e a tendency to forget that he's there. but knowing hes there helps me through each day. I love God he loves me. he loves all of us God is our Savior. not mine, or his, or hers, ours. God is ours. Amen !!!??

Used to cut and lately I've been ashamed of my scars and thinking my arms aren't pretty but this reminded me to not be ashamed and I'm stronger(:

Author — Natalie Pemberton


Love it!! I used to cut myself and this song is great to remind me of God's grace and just how scars don't define who you are and that love is just what we need to be redefined by God's Undying Love.

At first I didn't understand the message she was trying to portray. I listened to it several times and even paused the video. I finally got the message. It explains that scars remind us of the tough times God bought us through and how because of his scars on his hand, It shows us his grace and how much he loves us. That's what scars are for.

Proverbs 3:5-6
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

I pray in Jesus name, may you find comfort and peace in his name he is the best way to a better life.

my testimony started with a scar... the accident after which I was saved by the Grace of Jesus Christ...
I was left with no hope in the ICU but I came of saved and full of hope in Christ Jesus...

No victory without struggle. Thank you for Your Faithfulness. I may be down on the Mat right now, but In Due Season I will reap. A harvest

My Scars Run
To my Very Core....
But God Walked the Valley & Mountains with me.
<3 S
2 Timothy 3:12-13  (NIV)
12 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,
13 while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse,
deceiving and being deceived.
