Flawed Diamonds Do Shine by Nicole Jackson 7/27/18
Flawed diamonds are very common A perfect diamond is rare
These situations, tribulations, burdens, pressures of life are things WE ALL SHARE
For who can travel this life unscathed?
A girl is born, but a woman is often made
They say what doesn’t kill you makes stronger, but there are times I feel as though I am being buried alive!
Abba! Abba! Father! I have cried. Under these circumstances how do you expect me to thrive?
It’s dark in here!
And the Master Jeweler replies: “Yes, it is my dear.”
And it’s hot! I can’t breathe! And I am falling apart again!
And the Master Jeweler replies:
High temperatures and pressures you may crack, but you will not break, I need the light to get in.
Trust me, the Master Jeweler. I am expertly skilled in my trade. I formed you. Designed you. Carefully, with great detail, you are wonderfully made.
I cut, repair, adjust, and inspect. I heal, I cover, I lovingly correct.
I have prepared this season. I have set forth this time.
A diamond is a diamond and flawed diamonds do shine!
