Perhaps there is a pearl…

2015-05-22 09.31.40-1

In the dark of the night we can see the light of many stars. Some life experiences, though not easy, bring such light inside our soul, if we are but alert in noticing it. Maybe at this very moment something is occupying your thoughts and you cannot fathom its beginning nor its end nor how it is supposed to shape your life.

Perhaps this experience you are going through, even if ‘a little’ unpleasant, even if you struggle with understanding all the ‘whys’ yet cannot find that many ‘because’, and even if you don’t fully understand yourself and how you are responding to what is going on in your life, perhaps, just perhaps there is something really good in it for you.

Maybe you are to learn some deeper truths about life. Maybe it gives you an opportunity to get to know yourself on a deeper level. Maybe it shapes you, forms you in such a way that no other experience could. Maybe this very experience, no matter what it is, has a treasure, a blessing, a pearl that it carries hidden in its depths just for you. So take courage, even if right at this very moment it is hard to see and know what this pearl might actually be.

  1. Wow you have a way with words, this article is very touching, it makes me feel there is so much more to me deep in my soul, I just need to find it, fabulous.

  2. I have heard this sentiment expressed in a different way–“In all things there is a gift.” When the going gets tough, I try to ask myself, “What is the gift in this?” and it has offered me much succour.
