DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH

jewel

You will be a crown of splendor in the LORD’s hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God. Isaiah 62:3

Diamonds represent love and affection. They are sparkly little stones that cost a fortune. They stand for eternity, forever, endlessness. When placed on a woman’s finger they represent marriage and commitment. They are priceless.

Everyone has heard the expression “diamond in the rough.” This common phrase is used to describe “a person who has good qualities despite a rough exterior; a person with great potential.”

Did you know that we are all “diamonds in the rough?” We are that regular pebble in the stream – waiting for someone to pick us up and excavate us.  We are all looking for someone to notice our exterior and cut us open to find beauty beyond compare.

God notices our regular pebble exterior and calls us blessed. He turns our ordinary hearts into something extraordinary. We are no longer a “Plain Jane” in Christ. God has set a crown of diamonds on our heads. We no longer look through the eyes of a commoner, but gaze at the world through a princess privileged view.

– PRAYER –

God,

I thank you for calling me blessed and favored. Looking to you sets my heart afire. You have given me so many rich blessings. My appreciation will never be enough. All I can do is fall on my face in sheer gratefulness. You have set a crown of splendor on my head. I praise you for your provision. You will always be my King.

In Jesus’ Name Amen.
