It’s good to lose. It’s the polishing of a stone, roughing out the jagged edges and making the lines smooth.
It’s the sanding of wood to remove splinters for a clean surface for the beauty and safety of a wood-grain.
It’s growth of a plant plucked from poor soil to be placed in fertile ground to grow strong so that it bears fruit.
It’s a broken glass getting glued to be made into a beautiful mosaic. It’s made whole again, made into one piece. It’s good to be broken. You learn and begin to know what truly matters. You find valuable meaning through any and in every situation. Faith grows, real faith… genuine faith.
It’s good to be unappreciated, after all. You come to embrace appreciation in yourself–the surety of keeping you stable. It’s a firm establishment that cannot be uprooted. It’s God’s love and appreciation, His protection and provision.
It’s good to get rejected for your beliefs, for your faith, for your giving, for your labor… for the qualities you offered a person. You realize that you foolishly wasted irretrievable time on something that you chased that was not God’s Will. It is not the end; it is now the beginning.
It’s good to be mocked, cruelly laughed at, then called a liar from the face of the ‘father of lies’. You see truth as it is, all the way. You gain discernment, a greatness of heart and intellect to read people, the actual intent of their wrongdoings. You then separate yourself from iniquities.
“I’m not attracted to a ‘holy roller’.” Awesome; set free. You now embrace God 100%.
Matthew 5:11 (KJV): “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.”
