You are a Pearl of Great Price!
The kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it. – Matthew 13:45-46
An oyster embeds itself in the mire of the ocean floor. A pearl grows slowly and gradually within the mucous of the inside of the oyster’s shell. This hardly seems an appropriate setting for something as beautiful as a pearl. Pearls shine despite their early environment. No matter what kind of bad situation your life may be in, God sees beyond that. He sees you as the valuable and worthy person you really are. God goes beyond your assessment and hat of others to his own appraisal of your merit and significance. God sees the pearl. He always sees something special in you!
Pray this prayer and believe you are what God says you are and you will have all you need!
Dear God, I am grateful that you look far enough in me to see what is there. In Jesus Name, Amen.
