Ever feel ugly? Broken? Unwanted?

When Serena Jones, the heroine in my latest mystery series, finds a piece of sea glass, she remembers what a wise man once told her. Sea glass was once unwanted too—broken and discarded, of no use to anyone. But over time, the action of the waves and rocks and sand transformed it into something beautiful.

Over Maya Dead BodySomething sought after and treasured.

Isn’t that a gripping analogy for how the Lord can use difficult circumstances to hone strengths and positive qualities in us…if we’re willing.

The next time you find a piece of sea glass, slip it in your pocket, and every time you feel its smooth surface between your fingers or admire its frosted beauty, remember you are a treasure in the making.
