Description

We all endure trials, pain, and hardship in this life. The enemy often uses those experiences to convince us that our brokenness disqualifies us from ever being used by God again--that we can no longer be a testimony because of our emotional or physical scars. The truth is, your past pain and brokenness actually serve as preparation for what God wants to do in you and through you, if you will but surrender to and trust in him.

In Sacred Scars, neuropsychologist and fellow sufferer Dr. Michelle Bengtson helps you

· understand suffering through a biblical perspective
· discover how the trials of your life serve a purpose
· reflect on the healing that God has accomplished
· comfort others with the comfort God has given you

Just as Jesus's scars didn't disappear after his resurrection, our scars tell our story and lend credence to our testimony of the love and power of God. If you are ready to turn your past pain into present comfort and future hope, let Dr. Bengtson be your compassionate guide.

"We all have them--scars, that is--but few of us realize that these scars might just represent our finest hour. Dr. Michelle Bengtson teaches us to display our scars for God's glory rather than hide them, ignore them, or feel shame because of them. I read every word of Sacred Scars and felt hope return to my weary soul because I have scars too, and yet I haven't always known what to do with them. Now, because of Michelle's perspective, I will view my scars as the vehicle through which I am invited into his presence, where there is always fullness of joy." --Carol McLeod, speaker, bestselling author of Rooms of a Mother's Heart and Meanwhile, and host of the Significant Women podcast
