He Understands Scars

This touched me and helped me so much, I had to share it with you… You’ll be blessed too, I’m sure. – Faith ♥

It's a God thing...

  3. I have a few minor physical scars but many more emotional scars I could’ve given in to torn down depressive thinking but I chose Jesus and thats why I’m healed. Loved this post!! : )

    Thanks so much for sharing, and God Bless You. :)

  5. Thanks! The rose is beautiful and makes me think of the beautiful hands of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and how they were scarred just for me! How blessed I am. Thanks again! We are healed! Praise the Lord! GMB
