Nail-Scarred Hands

Something to remember:


Nail-Scarred Hands

His hands and feet both bear the scars
Put on them for our sin.
His wounds allowed us peace with God;
We’re reconciled again.
Now He is back in heaven and
We are His hands and feet.
And we may also have some scars.
(Life isn’t safe or neat.)
The world may see us flawed and worn
(We’re sinners after all),
But it should never see us bowed.
With Christ’s strength we’ll stand tall.
We Christians are not perfect, but
We still must strive to show
That we are Jesus’ nail-scarred hands,
While through this world we go.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!

God bless,
Denise McKenney
