God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. (1 John 3:20 NRSV)

God is greater than any scars that sin may have left upon our souls. Some of us know with all of our minds that God accepts us even though we have sinned, but our hearts still bear the scars of guilt and remorse. Others of us carry scars not from our own sins but the sins of others. We need to know that God is greater than all of our scars.

A woman dropped her contact lens in a full wastebasket. She looked for it diligently, but could not find it. Her husband took the basket and soon found the lens.

"How did you do that?" she asked.

"Well, you were looking for a small piece of plastic. I was looking for $125.00!"

No matter weather our scars are like a small piece of plastic or like $125.00, God is greater! There is no power in this world that can snatch us from God's hand. God is our shepherd--our best Friend. Our God is greater.

Dear God, help me to look beyond my scars to your all powerful love. In Jesus' name, Amen.
