One hundred miles beneath the surface of this planet,
it takes 2,200 degrees of heat
and 725,000 pounds of pressure
to forge a diamond,
which must be pushed up to the surface through volcanic eruptions
to finally be discovered and treasured by humans beings.
In our fast-paced society, it’s easy to forget our souls are like diamonds.
Our beauty is forged by fire in the depths of our being.
Whatever pressure you’re under right now,
keep the faith.
You’re not being destroyed!
You are being transformed from simple elements of the earth
into an eternally gorgeous creation,
which will be treasured by God forever.
