Unique Blogger Award

Unique blogger award

I was nominated by Tracie for the Unique Blogger award! I am very honored! I love reading her blog. I encourage you all to read it as well. You can tell she loves God and wants to please Him in all areas of her life. 🙂

I haven’t been blogging very long. I’ve had this site for several years but rarely wrote and then when I finally got serious about God I thought blogging would be a great way to get Christ’s message out there!

 

Answering the Questions:

1. What is a blessing that you are currently in the midst of experiencing?

I am meeting new people every day through WordPress who love God and strive to live for Him daily. It’s a blessing to get to know all these people. 🙂

2. What is your favorite vacation spot that you have experienced?

Every January my family and I go to the OBX (Outer Banks, NC) for a time of relaxation and fun. We don’t necessarily do a lot of things but rather just spend time together. It’s cold, yes, but it’s still so much fun!

3. If you could only tell your (current or future) grandchildren one message, what would it be?

Live for God every single day. Strive to be like Him all the time. God loves you and has great plans for you.

Nominees:

My Questions for the Nominees:

1.) Growing up, what was your dream job?

2.) What is a hobby of yours? (other than blogging! lol)

3.) How old were you when you accepted Christ as your Savior?

 

Keep on blogging, you guys! I love reading your posts!

What Scars are For

Y’all, I love Mandisa. Her songs are so honest….so raw…I love them all!

 

“What Scars Are For”

These scars aren’t pretty
But they’re a part of me
And will not ever fade away
These marks tell a story
Of me down in the valley
And how You reached in with Your grace
And healed me

They remind me of Your faithfulness
And all You brought me through
They teach me that my brokenness
Is something You can use
They show me where I’ve been and
That I’m not there any more
That’s what scars, that’s what scars are for
what scars are for

Erase, rewind
Wish I could every time
The hurt, the pain cuts so deep
But when I’m weak You’re strong
And in Your power I can carry on
And my scars say that You won’t ever leave

They remind me of Your faithfulness
And all You brought me through
They teach me that my brokenness
Is something You can use
They show me where I’ve been and
That I’m not there any more
That’s what scars, that’s what scars are for

I see it on the cross
The nails You took for me
Scars can change the world
Scars can set me free

They remind me of Your faithfulness
And all You brought me through
They teach me that my brokenness
Is something You can use
They show me where I’ve been and
That I’m not there any more
That’s what scars, that’s what scars are for
They show me that’s what scars are for
What scars are for
What scars are for
