Monday madness....just another day :-)

Worn out both mentally and physically and so glad that I have God as my partner in all that I do, to carry me when I can't walk anymore, to lift me up when I am too tired to go on, to dry up my tears when I have cried my last tear and to heal my heart when there seems to not have a beat left...I am so ready for some great things to happen in my life!

As I was sitting here I was thinking that I feel like Daniel in the lion's den and or Diana versus Goliath - do you ever feel like that? God is and was so much bigger and stronger then both of these...amazing huh? So I will carry on and continue to be faithful and hopefully remain peaceful and to remember I am not ALONE in this thing called LIFE.

And then I received this in an email from an angel tonight:

Malachi 3:3 says: 'He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver.'
This verse puzzled some women in a Bible study and they wondered what this statement meant about the character and nature of God..

One of the women offered to find out the process of refining silver and get back to the group at their next Bible Study.

That week, the woman called a silversmith and made an appointment to watch him at work. She didn't mention anything about the reason for her interest beyond her curiosity about the process of refining Silver.

As she watched the silversmith, he held a piece of silver over the fire and let it heat up. He explained that in refining silver, one needed to hold the silver in the middle of the fire where the flames were hottest as to burn away all the impurities.

The woman thought about God holding us in such a hot spot; then she thought again about the verse that says: 'He sits as a refiner and purifier of silver.'
She asked the silversmith if it was true that he had to sit there in front of the fire the whole time.

The man answered that yes, he not only had to sit there holding the silver, but he had to keep his eyes on the silver the entire time it was in the fire. If the silver was left a moment too long in the flames, it would be destroyed.

The woman was silent for a moment. Then she asked the silversmith, 'How do you know when the silver is fully refined?'

He smiled at her and answered, 'Oh, that's easy -- when I see my image in it.'

If today you are feeling the heat of the fire , remember that God has his eye on you and will keep watching you until He sees His image in you

I hope that if you too are experiencing some life trials that you will remember you are not alone and that God is there to carry you through. Remember He loves you and wants the best for you. Rest in peace tonight and let him work in your life as he has planned. Hugs!
