The Making of Diamonds

"The Making Of Diamonds" photo by Sally L. Smith

I am making ·you [your forehead] as hard as ·a diamond [or flint; or the hardest stone], harder than ·stone [or flint]. Don’t be afraid of them or be ·frightened [terrified; dismayed] by them, though they are a ·people who turn against me [rebellious house].”
Ezekiel 3:9

It's a process: Get cold enough, make frost, send sun. Voila! Diamonds.  Click on the photo above to enlarge and you may see them too.

No, we can't make diamonds; only God can.
He can also make us like real diamonds: hard, strong,and beautiful.  He can make us shine in a dark world by sharing His light with us...the light of His Son.  We are to pass that light around and sparkle even though we are afraid to do so.  People are not receptive to that kind of light because sin hides in darkness but we have a job to do.
Go thou out and sparkle!
