The Secret Pearl

IMG_0796

I love flip calendars with Bible verses and inspirational sayings.  Often I find they are just what I need on any given day.  Many times I find them appropriate to share with others who are encountering difficulties in life.

My new flip calendar is called “God Calling, Expanded Edition.” This morning I found myself running a few days behind and came across a scripture and a thought, I would like to share with all of you.

Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. 2 Corinthians 7:1

Each word or thought of yours can be like a pearl that you drop into the secret place of another heart, and in some hour of need, lo! the recipient finds the treasure and realizes for the first time its value.

Praying the thoughts and words we share, have a moment in time to speak to someone in the midst of troubles, when nothing else can be heard!

  1. I never thought of my words as pearls but I have found great comfort in the reassurances of others, and their words do stay with me. Thank you for reminding me to offer beautiful words of comfort and compliment more often.

    …but, people are precious gems themselves — with our without words — and I adore those with a kind heart. Although I do live in the world of ideas, it is the people who touch me emotionally that hold me the longest. They cradle me in their arms when I am weak, ill or bored.

    Today i received a simple message of concern from a dear old friend and that meant so much because it is a reaching out of the hand, out of concern for my health, and for conversation about how to solve everyday problems. Those types of friendships offer gifts of sincerity, of genuine goodwill and human connection. These are the pearls of love and light that I cherish the most.

    God bless you and guide you so that you may find contentment in the tapestry that brings you the most comfort.

    I hope that I can offer YOU some words of comfort when you most need them. Ah, and if you are running behind then this took time of your busy day to share with us. Thank you, dear soul ~
    🙂

  2. Your comments are always very helpful. I can see by what you write you are concerned and have thought before commenting. Isn’t it nice to have those friends who just check up on you because you have been in their thoughts? Definitely a blessing to have those who touch us emotionally and whom we can touch emotionally as well! Always look forward to what you have to say! God Bless!

  3. The topic reminds me of this verse in the bible concerning pearls. Matthew 7:6 “Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces.
