We Must Have Faith and Hope

Like glass I have been broken and shattered.

God repeatedly repaired my brokenness

by carefully gluing me back together,

one broken jagged piece of me at a time,

until I became whole again.

Leaving only remnants of my brokenness for the world to see,

appearing as beautiful scars

tattooed on my skin

as a reminder of the many struggles

I have survived.

Many wounds formed deep within me.

My brokenness buried deep inside,

unable to see with the naked eye.

These internal remnants of my brokenness are forever tattooed in my heart and soul,

hopefully reappearing as love, understanding and compassion,

radiating out through me touching, inspiring, loving and helping others,

because of the many struggles I have survived.

Like glass I have been broken and shattered

but I was never completely destroyed.

I prefer to refer

to my beautiful scars

as forever tattoos

etched into my skin, heart and soul

as symbols and reminders to me and others

that I am strong, resilient and I am a survivor.

My life is not over yet.

It is only just the beginning,

full of endless possibilities

that something new and fabulous

could happen to me one day.

I must have hope and pray.

hope and miracles

“Have patience, God isn’t finished yet.” Philippians 16
