Diamonds and Pearls
A Pearl forms when an irritant works its way into an oyster, mussel, or clam (this can take months to years). It takes time and an irritant to produce a Pearl.
It takes a long, long time, Lots of heat, and lots of pressure to produce a diamond.
Both diamonds and pearls are produced in the depths. What the enemy meant for evil God is using it for your good and producing something glorious. The Lord is looking for a pure and spotless bride. Allow those irritants and pressures to form and mature you. Allow the Lord to go deep within you to refine and purify you. The diamonds and pearls that God is forming is for your crown to present to the King of Glory.

“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose…and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified.”
