Visual Devotion: From Pain to Pearl

Thursday, December 27, 2012

 

Pain, Pain and more pain, with seemingly no relief...just one grain of sand that gets stuck in this poor oysters flesh. Contrary to most though, our friend the oyster will take this tiny grain of sand and polish it until it becomes a radiant pearl. I think sometimes we need to take our grains of sand and choose to be an oyster. To polish and polish a seemingly painful and irritating thing, causing it to become something beautiful and sought after. We can take the pain, the hurt, the misery and let it teach us, embrace it, polishing it, by choosing to be joyful, not becoming bitter and using it to help others going through the same hard times. Be encouraged! You will come through and Today's pain can become tomorrow's radiant pearl!

He has made everything beautiful in its time. Ecclesiastes 3:11
