God Sees The Scars

God Sees the Scars

When someone close has proved untrue,
Betrayed your simple trust...
Used you for their selfish ends and
Trampled in the dust
The past, with all its memories, 
And all its treasured ties,
The Light is blotted from the sky -
For something in you dies.

Red and deep our wounds may be-
But after all the pain,
God's own finger touches us
And we are healed again.
With faith restored, 
And trust renewed
We look towards the stars...
The world will see the smiles we have, but
God will see the scars.

    True, your poem speaks much truth. I like this poem.

    Kim......Thanks for your response. I don't identify with the wording of the verse you quoted. I didn't have the experience with a "friend".

    I believe the person who posted this left out the middle verse (which to me, is the best). I hope that can be fixed! Here it is below: Bless your false and faithless friend, just smile and pass along. God must be the judge of it; He knows the right from wrong. Life is short, don't waste the hours by brooding on the past; His great laws are good and just; Truth conquers at the last.
