There were wounds that now are scars
Forever fixed in place.
Scenes etched in my memory
That time cannot erase.
I donít understand, Lord
All that You have done.
But the scars have become trophies
Of the battles You have won.

There were times I felt despair
Lost and so alone.
Yet You had gone before me
I was never on my own.
I dropped my sword in anguish
Feeling the losses and defeat.
Then You brought my enemies before me
And laid them at my feet.

When strong words of rejection
Cut through me like a knife.
The pain was so unbearable
I despaired even of my life.
You picked me up and held me
Whispered softly in my ear.
ďMy child, these things I have allowed
So that youíll draw even nearer.Ē

You have picked me up, Lord Jesus
When the journey seemed too long.
I was weak and I was weary
But You are mighty and You are strong.
I donít understand, Lord
All that You
have done.
But all around me I see trophies
Of the battles You have won.

Melinda, this was such a beautiful way to look at the hard times we go through. I'll treasure the thought of the Lord's trophies in my life from now on. With love, Deb
