The oyster gets a piece of irritating sand inside.
The sand aggravates and agitates.

But the oyster has a fluid inside, which it secretes upon the sand.
And the oyster makes a beautiful pearl from the irritating sand!

1 Peter 1:6-9
6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be,
ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold
that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise
and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not,
yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

LIGHT from the WORD.

Life brings its difficulties to our souls.
There is, it seems, almost always a “trial of your faith.”

Because of our love for Christ, we continue to “rejoice,” regardless
of the difficulties we endure.
There is “joy unspeakable” in our hearts because we KNOW
the "end of our faith" is eternal "salvation"!

Daily contact with our Lord, through prayer, and Bible study,
fills us with courage to face every “trial” faith!

We can communicate that joy to others in some ways.
However, the joy is indescribably greater than we can describe!

When you face the gritty, grinding "sands of life,"
let the power of God IN you grow the PEARL OF FAITH!

Love ya!
Bro. Bruce
