No Scar?

Hast thou no scar?
No hidden scar on foot, or side, or hand?
I hear thee sung as mighty in the land;
I hear them hail thy bright, ascendant star.
Hast thou no scar?

Hast thou no wound?
Yet I was wounded by the archers; spent,
Leaned Me against a tree to die; and rent
By ravening beasts that compassed Me, I swooned.
Hast thou no wound?

No wound? No scar?
Yet, as the Master shall the servant be,
And pierc├Ęd are the feet that follow Me.
But thine are whole; can he have followed far
Who hast no wound or scar?

  1. Stephanie --

    You are just the most precious young woman. The perspective God has given you as you walk through all of this amazes and touches my spirit. You are so gifted and able to go to the heart of things. Someday God will reveal to you ALL the lives that have changed because of this journey you are on ... the people who have been saved ... eyes that have been opened ... hearts that have had the fire of New Life rekindled.

    I will be praying for you on Monday ... knowing above all else that God is WITH you and that HE will lift you up in a way like never before.

    Thank you so much.

    In Christ -- Sara Jones
