The Lord is your Rescuer and your Redeemer. He is the Light of the world. He has called you out of darkness and into His marvelous Light. The enemy always tries to steal your hope because Jesus has called you to be a light of hope. (The enemy always attacks us in the areas of our calling.) Jesus has called you to go into dark places and pull people into the light. You are to be a ray of sunshine in the midst of other people's distress. He has called to be so full of JOY that you are overflowing. He desires you to trust Him with your whole heart. He is faithful and will never let You down. He is not like man, He will never leave you or betray you. He is your protector and your safe place. A diamond is forged in the darkness. Intense heat and pressure forms a beautiful, shining, diamond. You are God's diamond. The enemy will tell you you're still just a lump of coal, but the truth is you've already come out of that place. Hard work and sacrifice has never detoured you. When people say you can't that pushes you to prove you can. All of your efforts will be rewarded. You will see the fruit of your labors. You're driven because the Father has given you an overcoming and persevering spirit. The butterfly is new life and freedom. Orange is perseverance and harvest.
"Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."
"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before Him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart."
