Life has a way of refining and remodelling us-and most times without announcement! I have been refined and remodelled in my sojourn on earth! I have been hurt so badly I thought I would die! I have been pained so hard I though I would never feel again. But in all I have gone through, I chose not to be passive, lest I be modelled into something or someone I wouldn’t like.
So, rather than play the victim, I chose to dig for the gains in my pain. Like the miner digging for gold, I have stumbled on many dirt, but my focus is the gold. So, regardless of past wrongs, like the miner I brush them aside and keep digging for the gains therein. Knowing that whatever is focused on is magnified, I choose to focus on and thereby magnify my gains and not the hurts or pains I have been through. And today like the Pearl, I have emerged-Beautiful and Precious. A Product of Pain but not bound or limited by it. Irritated into sheer loveliness!
I know the sweetness of marriage and the sting of separation. I have tasted both love and rejection. I love life and enjoy living it! I am shamelessly joyful, deliberately lively. A joy addict if you may know!
So, like the PEARL, I am precious, strong, resilient, optimistic and a beauty to behold. With the gains of my pains, I help others experience healing and wholeness. I encourage, I strengthen, I inspire and I lift up. Yes, I have been beaten by life but have chosen not to be bent by it.
What you have had to face and fight in life I may not know, but I do hope you will find comfort in my posts as I share my life with you. I do hope you will emerge stronger and better from whatever trial life has thrown at you. Having discovered that life can be sweet, depending on which side you bite from, I want to share my joy with you.
This is my platform. This is my world. And you are welcome!
…hurts are real, healing is possible & wholeness is achievable!
