The Making of a Pearl
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.” Matthew 13:45-46 NKJV
For centuries pearls have represented power and beauty. They are unique in the fact that they do not just become naturally, as other gems. But there are extenuating circumstances that cause them to come in to existence! They are nature's only living gems!
The making of a pearl is fascinating and powerful all at the same time. The pearl begins its (her) life inside of an oyster's shell. When an intruder, such as a grain of sand, floating food or parasites, gets in between the shells of the oysters, there begins the process of greatness! In order to protect itself from the irritant...the oyster will begin covering layer by layer its organ, this is called "the mantle" 💥💥💥 (OMG! Are you screaming yet?!)
Beloved, what you are going through is not in vain, but has purpose. The Ultimate Pearl maker is overseeing your process to ensure that you become...please understand that the things that you are encountering (the frustration, the irritations, the disappointments) are not to destroy you,but to empower you! The mantle that covers your life is more than enough to sustain you in any and every thing you walk through! You need to get excited about the end results! The bible says in 1 John 3:2 that it has not yet (but at any time)been revealed what (what suggests something inconceivably glorious) we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is!
In other words, you may not look like you're going any where in the physical aspects. In the physical realm, you still may be trying to get it together, but when He shows up... when He is revealed ( when He is revealed in you)... we shall be like Him. Get excited about the end result!
I want you. Yes, you to be encouraged! No matter how long your process takes it's going to get better and better! Rest in the fact, that although no one knows your name...you are being developed in the Secret Place!
Listen to this: The longer a pearl stays in the shell, the larger the pearl. At the appointed time the Pearl farmer will remove it. The pearl in itself has the power to impact its surroundings in more ways than one: it impacts communities, empowers women, educates children, preserves dying cultures and repairs the oceans. 💥💥💥 #ThePowerofthePearl #theHiddenPlace #stayintheSecretPlace #youregettingreadytocomeforth
