SCARED OF SCARS

“Father God, let us NEVER be scared of scars. They are there for a reason: To remind us of why Jesus took the nails for us. No longer we bleed from open wounds, for we have been healed by Him, Your Son and our Savior. Up on that Cross, Jesus took those nails because when He looked out, He saw that they were bleeding (like us), and He sought to heal them and NEVER be scared of their scars (like us). On a more personal note, the picture shows a dog who has been scarred from dogfighting. Oh my God, bless his or her heart! Anyone who makes dogs fight is a flat-out coward, and I don’t mean to bully that anyone. I just mean to tell Your Truth, Father God. If the dogfighters are so tough, put the dogfighters in the ring if they want to fight, NOT the dogs! If BOTH humans AND nonhuman animals fight or are forced to fight, where is Your Love, Father God? It certainly is not in that ring, nor is it in the hearts of anyone who would watch this spectacle of sorrow and savagery for Your dogs. You are NOT in that ring, Father God, but You are watching and I know You are most displeased and disgusted at what You are witnessing. Please stop all dogfighting, Father God, and on a more personal note, help me to help these dogs. I pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and Scarred Name of Jesus Christ, and this prayer is answered by my faith and my belief. Please help me, Father God, where my faith and my belief are lacking. Amen.”

(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in NEVER being scared of scars, for Jesus tells me to fear not my scars this daily leavened [Jesus again to the moon and the stars!] bread.”)

Don’t be scared of your scars. There’s a reason:

To remind you of how you hurt yet healed.

No more your open wounds that bleed “season.”

Each season, God with you on battlefield.

I’m not scared of my scars. There’s a reason:

Scarred Timothy ’cause they scarred my Jesus.

If He took those nails, why would I “treason?”

“Nail me, world, for I fear not your disgust.”

“Up on that Cross, I feared not their outlook,”

says Jesus. “I looked out and saw they bleed

from their wounds. That is why the nails I took:

To heal their wounds. Now their scars are My ‘He’d

do it again to the moon and the stars.'”

“Jesus, let us NEVER be scared of scars.”
