Christmas Miracles: I have scars but I’m Okay


Merry Christmas everyone! All the best to you and your families. I’m sitting in the living room with my family we have just opened our presents and Grandma came over and opened up her presents too. Last night we had two of my Grandmas and my Godparent’s over for late night snacks and sweets. A good time was had by all and I think it was midnight by the time everyone left and we had all cleaned up. Unlike most years, we chose to open presents today because we were all so tired. One of my brothers slept over and the other wanted to get home and sleep because he hadn’t slept the night before.

While talking to my Uncle last night ( one of my Godparents) we were discussing the topic of scars. All of us in life go through challenges and this leaves wounds and scars behind. When Jesus showed his wounds to Thomas after he had risen from the dead on Easter Sunday, Thomas felt Jesus’ wounds. He put his hands right in the places Jesus had been hurt when he was crucified on the cross on Calvary. He felt the place where the nails had been in Jesus’ hands and the hole where a spear from a Roman Soldier had pierced him in the side to see that Jesus was dead. The truth is, some wounds don’t heal and some form scars but we are all left with the presence of our bad times and painful traumas.

That is why God sent Jesus in the manger in Bethlehem. Even though that baby grew up and died on the cross, even though all his wounds didn’t heal, Jesus rose from the dead having defeated sin, death, and the grave to heal our wounds and battle scars. Even though we carry them through life, Jesus keeps us whole.

That is the most important message I can share with you this Christmas, the true meaning of Christmas. But, however you celebrate and for whatever reason I wish you the best. Thanks for your follows, likes, comments, and discussions throughout the year. Thanks for everything from the bottom of my heart.
