SCARS

Some years ago on a hot summer day in south Florida, a little boy

decided to go for a swim in the old swimming hole behind his house.

In a hurry to dive into the cool water, he ran out the back door, leav-

ing behind shoes, socks, and shirt as he went. He flew into the

water, not realizing that as he swam toward the middle of the lake,

an alligator was swimming toward the shore. His mother -- in the

house, looking out the window -- saw the two as they got closer and

closer together. In utter fear, she ran toward the water, yelling to her

son as loudly as she could. Hearing her voice, the little boy became

alarmed and made a U-turn to swim to his mother. It was too late.

Just as he reached her, the alligator reached him. From the dock,

the mother grabbed her little boy by the arms just as the alligator

snatched his legs. That began an incredible tug-of-war between the

two. The alligator was much stronger than the mother, but the

mother was much too passionate to let go. A farmer happened to

drive by, heard her screams, raced from his truck, took aim and shot

the alligator. Remarkably, after weeks and weeks in the hospital, the

little boy survived. His legs were extremely scarred by the vicious

attack of the animal, and on his arms were deep scratches where

his mother's fingernails dug into his flesh in her effort to hang on to

the son she loved. The newspaper reporter, who interviewed the boy

after the trauma, asked if he would show him his scars. The boy

lifted his pant legs. And then, with obvious pride, he said to the

reporter, "But look at my arms. I have great scars on my arms, too.

I have them because my mom wouldn't let go." We can identify with

that little boy. We have scars, too. No, not from an alligator, or any-

thing quite so dramatic. But the scars of a painful past. Some of

those scars are unsightly and have caused us deep regret. But some

wounds are there because God has refused to let go. In the midst of

struggle, He's been there holding on to you. He wants to protect you

and provide for you in every way. But sometimes we foolishly wade

into dangerous situations. The swimming hole of life is filled with

peril -- and we forget that the enemy is waiting to attack. That's

when the tug-o-war begins -- and if you have the scars of His love

on your arms, be very, very grateful. He did not -- and will not -- let

you go. ~ Source Unknown ~
