Diamonds are just breathtaking! Who isn't attracted to them? The beauty of diamonds do not originate as the adornments we see them today. It takes incredible heat and pressure to create a diamond. A lot of work and time goes into them. Some might even say they start out ugly, like a rock!
Of course, we know diamonds are not rocks at all but a composite of minerals. It would be hard to distinguish a diamond from a rock however. In fact, I would beg to differ that any inexperienced person who were to see a diamond in it's "rock" state and not knowing the basic diamonds pretense, they would discard them as worthless. You see, diamonds in there raw early stages are common looking, nothing special. Yet for the one that can apprehend the diamond in it's final form, they are priceless!
Just as You are priceless. Prized by the Creator whom sees you for who you are fashioned to be. You are what He cherishes. Your value has already so far exceeded past any measure. You may think you are just another rock on the mountain side but you are set apart to be special. You are a diamond among the rocks.
It is hard to understand why we go through the hurt and the brokenness. Time seems to move so slowly it is almost still. When will the hurt stop? When will you get a break? One thing is for sure, when the intense pressures and heat of your life is overwhelming, He is making diamonds out of you. A diamond so unique, no one can compare. A diamond that's God's best friend.
For high have the heavens been above the earth, So high have been My ways above your ways, And My thoughts above your thoughts.
