The crucible is for silver, and the furnace is for gold, and the Lord tests hearts.  Proverbs 17:3
In order for precious metals to become truly precious, they must be purified and reshaped.  This requires them to be taken past their melting points.  In order for a heart to become truly precious, it must be purified and reshaped.  This requires it to be taken past its breaking point.
  1. Amen! Don’t like the process, but know God is working all things together and trust Him completely.

  2. Wow, what a great conclusion – an awesome reminder. My sister -in-law and I have been having a lot of conversations along these lines this week – such an encouragement – I’ll have to share this with her tomorrow!
