Not All Scars Are Seen


Scars…..they are not always physically seen with our eyes. They can run deep within us that is hidden and sealed from others to see. It’s the wounds of the heart and the scars on the mind that can slowly destroy us like cancer.

He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might, He increases strength…Those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Place the past into the Lord’s hands and then “let go” of the stronghold, the pain, and the rage. I’m not saying to condone the act that was inflicted upon you but to give every single thing to God that is stealing your joy and preventing you from healing within. Don’t place a time limit on yourself to fully heal. No one fully heals from forms of abuse. It can take years to heal and for others, the imprint is there deep inside that lingers. What matters is you are working on yourself and that is not being selfish.

For some victims of abuse, whether child or adult it is therapeutic to write it out in a journal or type. Meeting with a Psychologist that deals specifically in past and present abuses will guide you through your journey in the matter and give you tools to use to find that voice deep within you to speak up and become louder and stronger. Yes, being victims of abuse scar your soul, the mind, and the heart. God can heal the inner and most delicate parts of your body and then use your experiences and pain to relay back to the world and take a stand. The more you advocate the stronger you become.

We are warriors, a survivor, and a mentor to others that have experienced the lowest forms of evil done unto them and empower them to find their voice.
