There’s this saying that we hear in church a lot, “I don’t look like what I have through”. However, to be honest some of us look exactly like what we have been through and more. Don’t get me wrong that doesn’t change our testimony or make it any less powerful, it’s just a fact. Your scars may alter one’s appearance but it doesn’t remove the beauty God has placed on you and in you. Last night my mom, Dr. Jennifer Johnson held her annual fall revival and the title of her message ‘Yet Will I Praise Him’. The sermon made me reflect on what I had been through how much I had overcome. Yes, I still have some hurdles and at I times I may slip and fall. But it can’t stop, won’t stop my praise. My God has proven Himself faithful to me. Though I may not be able to cover all my scars or hide some life altering mistakes I created, yet will I praise Him. And yet will I continue my walk into my purpose. My journey has not been easy but my scars and journey have made me the woman I am today. To some I may still look exactly like what I been through but in Him my identity is just as beautiful and pure as the day I chose to say yes to His will. The bible tells us in II Corinthians 5:17- “Therefore, if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature. Old things have passed away; behold all things have become new”. Your image has now been transformed – because now your life is a reflection of the God in you…. a new beginning and a new you. That in itself should give you a reason to praise Him. Wow my God is so good!
