Diamonds

Whenever we are going through or have gone through horrific circumstances, we can often feel like it was all for nothing. But what if I can tell you that there is, in fact, a purpose to what you've gone through. 

You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people... Genesis 50:20 NLT 

A diamond is created by going through an intense process:
Bury carbon dioxide 100 miles into Earth.Heat to about 2,200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Heat to about 2,200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Squeeze under pressure of 725,000 pounds per square inch.
Quickly rush towards Earth’s surface to cool.

We can apply those same situations to our lives:
Bury - Buried pain so deep that it now shows up in all sorts of ways: promiscuity, anger, addictions, etc. Burying emotions so that life feels numb.
Heat - Being burned by way of physical, emotional, sexual, and all sorts of other types of tragedies. Or just feeling like life is a living hell.
Squeeze -  Being under pressure all the time. Anxiety, stressed, and depressed.
Quickly - Never settling down and being calm. Always having to go, do, be...

This stone has a brutal process to become what it is intended to be. A beautiful diamond that shines bright and it's value is worth more than all other gems.
The same is said for you! You have overcome obstacles to become the beautiful woman that God has intended you to be. A beautiful, spiritual, woman that shines brighter than the rest. Because of what you've been through, your shine is now a glimmer of hope for others still going through. 
So shine on ladies...
