Pain Makes Beautiful Things

This week has been one for the taking. It seemed everything that could go wrong did just that. Looking for the beautiful required more searching this week than I would have liked, but nothing beautiful comes without pain.

Diamonds and Pearls must experience pain and irritation to become beautiful creations and likewise, so must we.

Our speaker at church this morning referenced Daniel 3:17, a beautiful story of faith and God’s faithfulness.

“If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to  save us from it, and he will rescue us from your hand…”

Stories of Job and Daniel, along with words from Jesus, promise that we will have trouble, but those stories and His words also give us the promise that he has overcome!

The week finished strongly as I was encourage and uplifted by friends and the message spoken this Sabbath! The message was lived out as I came home to a chocolate cake from a local French bakery by my sweet roommate, Sam!

May your week be fruitful and may you be a light and the hands and feet of Jesus.

Wishing you all a beautiful and happy Sabbath!
