By having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints (His set-apart ones).

EPHESIANS 1:18

You are a very precious jewel in the sight of the Lord. He has created and shaped you uniquely, with all the characteristics you have, your personality, your appearance, and your nationality. Everything that you are today is the molding and shaping hand of God on your life. The one thing to remember is that there are going to be a few rough edges that need working on.

Sometimes you may feel as though there is a sign that reads “To be continued” hung around your neck. Welcome to the club. He is at work inside of you. Stay pliable in His hands, and surrendered to whatever He wants for your life.

Just as a proud diamond cutter chips-off, polishes and shines the gem he is working with until it is brilliant with luster, so you will shine with the glory of God. The work being done on you will be a little painful and uncomfortable at times, but God is getting rid of all the rough edges. He knows how to bring the brilliance out in you. You are going to be what He wants you to be. Surrender all to the Lord, let Him cut, polish and shine your life until you glisten with His presence.
