Beautiful

070I rode up in the elevator with a woman today and she shared how she was feeling, she said “If only my back would stop hurting I believe the world would be a beautiful place.”
As I exited the elevator my thoughts were on what she had said and about my own pain and I immediately knew deep within me that the world is a beautiful place if Jesus is my center, the bible tells us that there are going to be tough times, pressure from all around and yes, pain and suffering.
I am reminded of when I was expecting my daughter, I knew that labor was going to be painful but I knew the end result would be the birth of my child, and even after labor and a C-section to deliver her the pain was quickly forgotten because I held my beautiful miracle in my arms. And yes I have pain everyday and sometimes it feels like it is too hard to go on but I know the end result and it is beautiful, Christ died an excruciating death so that I could experience the beauty of His love even in my pain and so that I would have the promise of a painless eternity with Him. Christ has made all things beautiful.

I Have Scars

I have I Have Scarsscars,
some can be seen,
others are hidden,
deeply hidden.
But there is One who can see them all,
He is the Comforter who has seen them all,
and has healed them all.
My scars are no longer mine,
they are His,
He has taken them all,
and all because He loves me!
