Trophies




"Though the Lord is on high, Yet He regards the lowly." Psalm 138:6

There were wounds that now are scars
Forever fixed in place
Scenes etched in my memory
That time cannot erase

I don't 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 weight of my defeat
Then You brought my enemies before me
And laid them at my feet

When words of strong 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
Whispering softly in my ear
"My child these things I have allowed
So that you'll draw even nearer"

You have picked me up Lord Jesus
When the road has been too long
I was weak and so weary
You are awesome and so strong

I don't understand Lord
All that You have done
But all around me I see trophies
Of the battles You have won
