As I was sharing with Amanda last night, my heart now feels free. It's almost as if God has been waiting on me to take those steps of faith that He guided me to start taking four years ago. I know that these are the steps that God desires of me and I am glad that the fear is gone. I have big dreams. Not dreams for me, but dreams for what God can do through me for others to meet Jesus. I hope that is your hearts passion as well! For you to be so used by God that people have no choice but to see Jesus through your life. That is what Custom Scars is ultimately about. It's not only the acceptance of one's Custom Scars, but also allowing God to use those scars to help bring hope to others. Everyone reading this can be a glimmer of hope to someone else. A smile, a kind word, a note can change the course of someone's day.
When we allow God to direct our hearts and lives, He will always give us the strength to make it to the end. It's not always easy and for many of us it can even be painful, 'but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:31.
