We Are Pearls In The Making

Post  WARRIOR on Thu 30 Dec 2010, 3:34 pm

The making of a pearl
Is the hardest task of all
For to send a grain of sand
To irritate the clam
It sits in its craw ~
Continuous a thorn in your side
The grain of sand embedded
In the muscle it does hide
As you fight against it
The muscle does become injured
A welt then a lump does rise
And after time the sand ~
You adapt without knowing to yourself
The sand and you are one
And merge the shining pearl
From all the persistent irritation
Comes a treasure sublime
One that many hunt for
To behold the beauty of
For the struggle has brought forth
A mirrored polished gem
Brought about by the pain endured ~
Are we not to seek that
Pearl of great price ?
And are we not like the clam
Enduring all struggles and pains,
By our tasks to multiply our talents,
To bring forth a prize to lay
At the Master's feet?
We are all pearls in the making
Strung together as one body
Glorifying the Father's throne.

powerful imagery


But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.
Malachi 3:1-3 (King James Version)

Malachi 3
1Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the LORD, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

2But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap:

3And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.

May we endure till the priceless pearl appears
Thank you
