The Scriptures say we are a royal household, Kings & Priests,
One day we will cast our crowns at the feet of our Lord – King of the Universe.
Consider now the jewels in our crowns.
I see them as trouble, troubles that pressed us to grow.
Troubles- our pain and suffering,
Troubles that formed- Character.
Jewels start as raw crystals, hidden in the earth created through heat and pressures.
We resist or yield to the trouble of life.
Yielding and learning in grace and truth creates Jewels.
Jewels in our crowns!
Crowns we will one day gladly and with exceeding joy cast at His feet.
He who through His grace and truth transformed our troubles into glory!
May you grow through your troubles and find His glory be all about you!
