Think about this: the only difference between a piece of black coal and a priceless diamond is the amount of pressure that it’s endured. When you stand strong in the midst of the trials and difficulties in life, when you allow God to shape and mold your character, it’s like going from a piece of coal to a priceless diamond. Those difficulties are going to give way to new growth, new potential, new talent, new friendships, new opportunities, new vision. You’re going to see your life blossom in ways that you’ve never even dreamed!
An Encouragement: To the girls, the women, the ladies, the females. To the mothers, the daughters, the sisters, the nieces, the cousins, the aunties and the grandmothers. To the insecure, to the broken, to the loved and unloved. To the lost, to the scarred, to the hurting and the whole. To the empty, to the downcast, to the unhappy and the content. To those who can look in the mirror, and to those who cannot. To those who are happy to have their photo taken, and to those who hide their face away. To those of you who cannot face a day without makeup, or bare to see your reflection in a window passing by. To those who are single, married, separated, divorced, widowed. To anyone who needs to hear these words; and see this clip — this is for you.
I am set apart for Christ. He is my first love and I daily struggle to live in this world and not to be conformed to it. I thank God for his redeeming grace. This blog is to inspire others to seek him first in their lives. Praise God!
