Show Notes S6E26: Sacred Scars with Dr. Michelle Bengtson

by | Jun 26, 2024 | The Love Offering Podcast Show Notes

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 today’s episode, 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. Join us to turn your past pain into present comfort and future hope. 



Scars are healed wounds that can be physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual.

Shame tells us we are a mistake, but God does not shame us.

We can give our worries and pain to God by being honest with Him and seeking His will.

Surrounding ourselves with supportive people is important in our healing journey.

Finding purpose in our scars requires shifting our perspective and deepening our understanding of God’s love and redemption.

Holding on to hope and trusting in God’s plan can lead to healing and transforming our scars into something sacred.
