Mar 13 – Scarification

When Holly Mosienko decided to cover a surgical scar on her leg, she chose a method known as scarification, a process in which one’s skin is cut, etched, burned and branded. Those who opt for it often do so for aesthetic reasons or to gain status. But more serious than physical scarring are the scars inflicted within. Many people today suffer from rejection, abuse, bullying or other forms of emotional trauma. The only permanent solution to these problems is to open our hearts and lives to the Lord Jesus. Isaiah described Him as being despised and rejected by men,” “ a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.” Jesus understands our scars. Those who give their lives to Him can sing, ”Something beautiful, something good. All my confusion, He understood. All I had to offer Him was brokenness and strife, but He made something beautiful of my life.”
