Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the LORD: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged. Isaiah 51:1
Notice the quarry where we were found. How deep the LORD had to dig to cut us out of the formation. Take to heart and mind that God pushed past the beauty that lay on top and cut through the capstone to reach the depth of granite to be harvested. He viewed the grain and saw the hidden beauty that we would be. He then drilled and blew us out of the comfort that we knew. With loving tender care, He hewed, sawed and trimmed us to a final shape and then began the polishing and buffing process that made us beautiful. Notice the roughness of the harvest and the tenderness of the polish and buff that has been applied. He Loves us with a love that is beyond comprehension and understanding. He makes us beautiful and a delicious work of love. How we should love Him.
