    Don't Count Yourself Out

    Don't Count Yourself Out

    It's almost universally believed that tech guru, Steve Jobs, floated into mega success with Apple, the company he co-founded with Steve Wozniak.
     
    Job’s first go around with Apple didn't end well — in 1985, he was forced out. His next effort wasn't a home run either, yet Job puts his head down like a fullback and plowed ahead. Next up for him was founding Pixar and finally, more than a decade after his humiliating exit from Apple, Jobs returned there as CEO and revolutionized the way people interacted with computers.
     
    Writing about him after his death, Jason Demur said that, “Steve Jobs is lasting evidence that you should never count somebody out – even yourself.” In other words, even if someone pushes you back, you have to keep moving forward. Believe it or not a fellow tech icon, Bill Gates, also had to learn the hard way.  His first venture with business partner Paul Allen was a complete failure, but Gates said many times in the years since that learning from failures leads to success, and Microsoft is proof of that.
     
    Christian Ministry leader, Jo Walls, has some interesting things to say to Christians who have perhaps grown too comfortable in their faith, and she addresses herself first. She says, “God’s been talking to me lately about being too comfortable. He's challenging me in some ways that I'm not real thrilled about. He's pushing me to grow and in fact, He's telling me ‘cheer up buttercup – life can be a grind,’ and that's when we need to push through.”
     
    Even though it can sometimes sting when someone tells us to chin up, it's ultimately for our good. And let's face it – most of us know it feels good to overcome something really difficult.
     
    Psalm 46:1 says, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” When your life is spent following Jesus, fear disappears in the light of God's reassuring love. He has a plan for you, and you don't have to walk in the shadows when God’s got your back. Every moment of every day is brighter knowing our Heavenly Father watches over us.
     
    The unknown doesn’t have to be cause for worry. It’s an opportunity for God to work on your behalf.  Hand the details over to Him and wait patiently and faithfully for His good plan to come to flourish. The joy of knowing we can always depend on God is a message worth sharing.
     
    Let’s Pray.
     
    Lord, we need your strength every single day. We know that some things just don’t come easy. Thank you for bringing us along the way you do. We pray and believe. It feels good to emerge from difficulty and realize that the strength you gave us pull us out of despair. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

    The Rarest Gem in the World

    The Rarest Gem in the World

    As we wrap up our series on precious jewels, it is kind of fun to spotlight one last gemstone. One that isn’t immediately beautiful or desired.
     
    But it is the rarest!
     
    Discovered in east Asia by British mineralogist Arthur Pain, the so-called “Painite” gemstone can be found in several colors, and the various hues seen as light hits them give an uncommon view.
     
    Incredibly, only 25 such stones exist today, and the value per gram works out to $9,000! Despite the fact that many people have never heard of it, Painite is the rarest of rare jewels. For the longest time, only two had been found the world over.
     
    That kind of rarity stands out in a crowd.
     
    Proverbs 31:10 says, “She is far more precious than jewels.”
     
    Think of how rare and precious a true Proverbs 31 woman is. She is a woman remembered vividly, even with emotion, long after she goes to be with her Lord.
     
    Are you a mother beloved by your children? Do they think of you fondly? Does your husband honor you for your uncommon strength and love? Will friends seek you out when they can’t turn to anyone else? If so, you are that rare gem.
     
    And you are loved indeed.
     
    Let’s pray.
     
    Lord, help us be that rarest of jewels, one that points others to the light and majesty of Christ, forevermore. Amen.

    Perfection is Uncommon

    Perfection is Uncommon

    In its natural state, the jaw-dropping gem known as emerald often resembles an ancient barrel-shaped decree from a king. It tells us things nothing else can.
     
    Today, the glittering green stone stops an onlooker. It takes our breath away. When set against a backdrop of shimmering gold, it is something that transfixes us.
     
    The calming color of an emerald actually gives the eyes a rest after working for a while. In fact, some think looking at emeralds relieves eye strain, a sparkling, homeopathic remedy for the overworked.
     
    Proverbs 31:10 says, “She is far more precious than jewels.”
     
    Among the most sought-after gemstones, an emerald speaks of a royal court. A monarch. One who is destined to lead people to greatness.
     
    Like humans, an emerald without blemish is very, very rare. Perfection is not common. So too is perfection in humans, since only Christ is perfect. His example is our ideal and goal, and He shapes us throughout our lives, refining us into rare and beautiful examples of His love.
     
    A Proverbs 31 woman has been set apart by the Lord Himself. He sets her in a throne of gold, so that those she comes in contact with will stop and listen to her.
     
    God asks the Proverbs 31 woman to wear her beauty well. Not for her own glory, but for the glory of the Lord.
     
    Let’s pray.
    Lord, out of kindness and care for us you provided a glorious rainbow of color in your world. Thank you for such beauty, and for what it can mean to us. Amen.

    Sapphire Stands Apart

    Sapphire Stands Apart

    We don’t have direct evidence, of course. The Bible doesn’t tell us this exactly…
     
    But tradition says that the Ten Commandments were carved from a solid slab of sapphire.
     
    It’s a beautiful thought, isn’t it? The rich blue of the sapphire gemstone reminds us of royalty, and the regal King Jesus. It fits!
     
    Proverbs 31:10 says, “She is far more precious than jewels.”
     
    When a woman admires a sapphire necklace, or turns her hand in order to catch the light on that beautiful blue sapphire ring, she is presenting a picture of what it means to be a Proverbs 31 woman. The ring of a ruler, one that loves all people and values them, the sapphire can be seen from a very long distance. There is no mistaking that this is a treasure that draws the best kind of admiration from everyone who comes in contact.
     
    If you want to stand out from the crowd in the best sense of the term, remind yourself that your King is the royal regent who has set you apart to be His ambassador here on Earth. See yourself the way He sees you: a precious and priceless gem.
     
    Let’s pray.
     
    Lord, like the sapphire, we desire to stand out from the crowd for the right reasons: to point the way to King Jesus. Help us to shine for you! Amen.

    Lit From Within

    Lit From Within

    Diamonds.
     
    The very word calls to mind something so beautiful and rare, people everywhere immediately form a sharp mental image. Who hasn’t dreamed of handfuls of these sparkling, valuable gemstones running through their hands?
     
    Nothing speaks of high value more than a diamond solitaire. Such a piece of jewelry signals to the world that a couple considers their relationship to be both priceless and eternal.
     
    Proverbs 31:10 says, “She is far more precious than jewels.”
     
    Yes, this is it. A Proverbs 31 woman has literally been made by the Lord to be a clear, radiant light so that people can see Christ living in her. Honestly? What humans label as beauty often misses the mark. Light comes from within, not from the surface.
     
    A woman who knows her worth in Christ Jesus is that stunning girl turning heads, and engaging and inspiring hearts.
     
    Not only is a woman who is an ambassador for Christ lovely, she is also durable. She is not smashed by the cares of life. When life presses in on her, she turns to her Lord and emerges as a thing that cuts the enemy to pieces.
     
    She shines for all time.
     
    Let’s pray.
     
    Lord, the beauty you create is not matched by human creativity. Thank you for the sparkling ‘diamonds’ that come into and enrich our lives. Amen.

    A Rare & Precious Jewel

    A Rare & Precious Jewel

    Everyone loves the beauty of nature’s gems. The greens, blues, and reds of natural gemstones have set apart jewelry since the beginning of time. These precious jewels are relatively rare, and desired by people from all walks of life.
     
    None more than the ruby.
     
    The second hardest gemstone, rubies have always been striking for their deep reds that flash in the light. They have been used in the crowns of monarchs for centuries, and for the rings and necklaces we can find in jewelry stores today. Jewelers tell us the ruby is one of the most coveted stones.
     
    Four times rubies are mentioned in the Bible, and each time the reference is to beauty or wisdom.
     
    Proverbs 31:10 says, “She is far more precious than jewels.”
     
    A godly woman is one who stands out for her internal beauty and wisdom. She is admired for all the right reasons as she walks in the light, revealing the kind of attributes only God can craft and provide.
     
    In the famous “Proverbs 31” chapter of the Bible, we read a fairly detailed account of this wonderful woman. Many of us count them as mothers, wives, sisters, and daughters.
     
    How they bless us!
     
    Let’s pray.
     
    Lord, the Proverbs 31 woman, like a fine ruby, is easy to spot. We value them for all the right reasons. Thank you for the blessing of knowing and appreciating women such as these. Amen.
