No grit, no pearl!
What an awesome mantra! To me it means, appreciate the beauty of the process. A lot of times we complain about humble beginnings, we are putting in the work but not seeing the results we want. We pray and ask God when will it be my turn? We as believers, have to trust that God’s plan is perfect. He is conditioning you for journey he is about to take you on.
Do you know what a pearl begins with? A pearl begins with a humble piece of grit – an annoying irritant that the oyster coats with layer upon lustrous layer of nacre in an effort to protect itself from the unwanted invader.
Embrace the grit! Your pearl is coming!
“… persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.” Hebrews 10:36
