The Fire Brings Gold

Process is painful, but the rewards of it far outweigh the suffering. There is no gold without fire. Given the choice, I would never want to skip the process. There might be some processes I might haven chosen over others I had to go through, but we don’t have that choice. But what comes out at the end – the priceless intimacy with God, the understanding of His faithfulness and the knowing of His nearness – let me tell you, it is worth it and it will never come to you any other way besides journeying through the processes of life with Him. The gold that is uncovered when your heart is tested and found faithful – it is worth every fight and every tear.

“Who is this coming up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved?” / Song of Solomon 8:5

May our hearts be found faithful and true to Him through the fire. May we be found coming up from the wilderness leaning upon our Beloved.
