My loyal, beautiful soul-of-a-woman, Best Friend lost her 27 year-old son recently (June, 2021), when his mental illness convinced him that the only way to make the pain and hopelessness; the constant torture, of his mind and heart STOP, was to end his own life. He took his own life because he believed a lie.
(My Friend had her Beautiful Boy when she was 15, so they had grown up together.)
I had no words for her. Nothing. There was absolutely nothing I could say to her that would be significant enough to even ease her pain (and anger) one tiny bit. So I stayed silent.
But then, I heard this song. It’s by Casting Crowns, whom I love and admire, so the words of Scars In Heaven; that they translate God’s Word for us so succinctly and so beautifully, is no surprise. So I sent them to her.
But we spoke on the phone before she had the opportunity to open my message, which included this song, and she told me about a song she had heard, called Scars In Heaven.
The Lord had provided, through the Holy Spirit, the words I needed to say; the words my girl needed to hear.
So my review of Scars In Heaven is that I believe this song will be included on any/every Greatest Hits/Best Of albums Casting Crowns ever does.
Would I listen again? On REPEAT!
Would I recommend to a Friend? To everyone I KNOW!
My brother is going through stage 4 liver cancer & my hope & prayers is God will grant his miracles upon my brother. Yet knowing how real the words of this song is, has brought many tears & peace, His peace. THANK YOU for such a time as this, so many needed this song🙏🏼♥️🙏🏼
This is right on time because He’s an on-time God
Lost 90 yo mom this year, I am sure she had rough times in her life but know she is with the one that has took the scars for her now.
