A Diamond in the Rough being Unveiled - Gracious
She was 13 when her parents divorced. Life as she knew it would change forever. Her solution? Men, alcohol, food, sex. The results? Low self esteem, abuse, sex, sickness, loneliness, sorrow. Which way will she turn now? She turns to “faith.” Faith in Jesus Christ. Could it be that He is the solution? She trusts Him and is freed. She gets to know Him and finds value in herself. She spends time with Him and she is no longer lonely. He touches her heart and she healed.
It’s a mystery! She tells that her pain has made her stronger. She knows that her loneliness has caused her to touch others; her sorrow has turned to dancing. Who could have convinced her that “faith” would turn her world around. Now she laughs, she sings, she dances, she is loved and she is with child.
Psalm 34 New Living Translation
I will praise the Lord at all times. I will constantly speak his praises.2 I will boast only in the Lord; let all who are helpless take heart.3 Come, let us tell of the Lord’s greatness; let us exalt his name together.4 I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears.5 Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces. In my desperation I prayed, and the Lord listened; he saved me from all my troubles.7 For the angel of the Lord is a guard; he surrounds and defends all who fear him.8 Taste and see that the Lord is good.
