So many times we replay our hurts, rehearse our fears and hold on to shame. We fail to learn the lessons that lie within each failure. If there was a lesson in every failure, would you still consider it a failure? I often say, lessoned learned, not I failed. I mean I have made some BIG mistakes, HUGE. I beat myself up for them for years. I also let others hold me back because I had convinced myself that I couldn’t move forward. However, now I can say I have learned some major lessons and I don’t mind sharing them.
I have found a way to use all my flaws, hang ups and let downs for a greater good. I am not perfect, but I thank God for sending his only Son to be a perfect savior. I dressed up my wounds for years. But when I surrendered them all to God he healed them. And now, “I show my scars so that others know they can heal” ~ Rhachelle Nicol’
