Feb 12 – Scars Erased

30 year old Tanya St. Arnauld sustained terrible scars from injuries in an acid attack during the summer of 2012. In spite of skin grafts, rounds of burn treatments and rehabilitation, the damage remained severe. Then Dr. Jill Waibel of Miami Dermatology and Laser Institute in Florida learned of St. Arnauld’s plight and St. Arnauld was offered a free course of laser treatments. Tanya burst into tears of joy at the news. Now she says, “I look like I never had an accident.” But as wonderful the news was for Tanya, there is even more wonderful news that all our sin scars, our guilt and misery can be erased by Jesus, the Son of God. The Psalmist David was inspired to write, a prayer we can all pray, “create in me a clean heart, O God and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” If we sincerely pray that prayer, God will remove our spiritual and emotional scars.
