"Diamond in the rough" Poem by: Ryan Lee Morris
Diamond In The Rough
The rock is unearthed.
A diamond is born. Unclear and jagged, What it will become, Is what it already is. It just doesn't know it yet. Handled delicately, and finely crafted, It begins to take shape. It does not transform on it's own, But at the hands of another. Someone who see it's potential, And knows all along, what it truly is. When it is done, It shines for the world to see. Once, just a vision, now real. It took the one that believed in it, To shape it, to polish it, And show it what it was all along. He believed in the diamond in the rough. As I believe in you. For I know you have what it takes, To one day, shine brighter than the rest. You are the diamond in the rough. Shine on!
It is our Father God who created us. His words says Psalm 139:14 "I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works." God made no mistakes when He made you. If you will allow Him to use you, you will be amazed at the works you can do with Him for His glory. It doesn't matter what you have been through, what you have done or what someone has done to you. God can and will use you for His glory. You are His Diamond. When His light shines through you the cuts in your stone reveal so much color and beauty that no one will be able to deny your worth.
