Poem About How God Worked In My Life

I wrote this poem right before my second brain surgery. I have a large scar that I've learned not to be ashamed of, but to embrace, precisely because it tells a wonderful story of how God has worked in my life and worked all things together for my good.

Every Scar Has A Story

Published: December 2015

Every scar has a story.
What will mine tell?
What will come of this
when I’m better, when I’m well?

I want my scar to tell
of how I’ve overcome,
of how I made it through,
of where I have come from.

I want my scar to whisper
about the pain I faced,
about this very hard time,
about the marathon I raced.

But mostly I want my scar
to speak of something greater
I want it to shout
about my living Creator.

Let my scar be evidence
that there is a loving Lord
who fought my scary battles
and on whose wings I soared.

Let my scar proclaim
that all things work for good,
that by myself I couldn’t
but with my God I could.

Let them take a look.
Let them peek and see.
My scar shows God is great.
It points to Him, not me.

Thank you so much for this poem. I read this poem in church, after suffering cardiac arrest at home. My husband was told by the paramedics that I probably wouldn't make it. My husband kept telling them to keep trying. I had my whole church praying for me, and I am here to tell my story. This poem touched me in such a way that I felt it necessary to read at church. I could barely get through it, but I did, and every so often I read this poem again. I am so thankful for God's blessings.

Thank you for this poem. I have had liver cancer twice, and it has left me with a very large scar from my liver transplant. I thank my God that I have been cancer free for 9 years. I can so identify with this beautiful poem because it does remind me of God's wonderful grace.
