The Significance Of A Pearl

Matthew 13:45
“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking fine pearls,”

Growing up I would always hear, “Be careful not to cast your pearls into the swine” Matthew 7:6.  The real significance of a pearl never really set in until today.

I was born in the middle of June where summer begins so, winter is not my friend. Pearls are my birthstone and have always been my favorite piece of jewelry. A couple of years ago my daughter Kade’sha bought me a tiger eye bracelet that had a pearl in the middle for Mother’s Day and my mother bought me a pearl set with diamonds for my birthday. They are two of my favorite pieces that I own. This year for my birthday I decided to invest in myself and bought a pearl ring. I have only had it 6 months and the pearl has already fallen out twice.  Even though I had a warranty what is the purpose of taking a chance with losing the pearl if it continues to fall out.

The jeweler explained to me that pearls aren’t meant to be worn every day, only on special occasions. Because of how the pearls are made it is hard to secure them, but they are very beautiful to look at. They represent elegance, class, beauty, wealth, and wisdom.  I loved it, but today I traded it in for something else.

“I am uniquely made”

Did you know that pearls are the only gem that is naturally formed inside another creature? Unlike other gems, it requires no cutting or polishing as is uniquely made and stands on its own. The pearl is also one of the most delicate gems that are valuable, very rare, and must be handled with care.  When getting dressed it should be the very last piece that you put on because perfumes, hairsprays, etc. could tamper it.

Biblically in Matthew 7:6, a pearl is being referred to as to not to waste what is valuable on fruitless endeavors. Just like a pearl we were also created from something natural. We were created in God’s image. Wonderfully and fearfully made by the hands of God and we are precious in his sight.


Lord as we enter into a New Year, we want to thank you for pulling us through. May we be careful who we give ourselves to and how we allow others to handle us. Like a pearl, I am valuable, unique, and very rare. I AM WORTH IT!  Help us to realize our true value and worth on the earth. That we will continue to become more like who you have created us to be.

Song List

Just As I Am

I was sitting at my job one day  when all of a sudden I heard the most beautiful voice I had ever heard of in my life.  The sound that I heard was so pure, as if it were coming from heaven.  When I looked up it was a young man who was disabled. By looking at him you would have never expected that to come out of him. There were no words, just this beautiful melody. It would go in and out of melody to a noise, but oh how beautiful it was.  I was sitting there trying to hold back the tears because I had never heard anything like that and it touched my heart so. His voice would carry through out the waiting room and people would come out of the back wondering what was all that noise, but they failed to hear the melody that was flowing from his heart.  I would see the looks and feeling people wanting him to shut up, but they had no clue.  This wasn’t some ordinary noise that you would normally hear and because they weren’t tuned in they could not hear what I could hear.  It was music to my ears and some how brought peace to my soul.  I asked  his case worker had he always been disabled and she said yes. Wow! I was even more blown away.  He most definitely has a unique gift.  In my stupidity I began to think how much more he could be if someone knew how to work with him, to cultivate what he has. The Lord immediately rebuked me by telling me he is fine just the way that he is and I understand exactly what he is saying to me. I found myself repenting almost to the point of tears because of my thoughts.  Psalm 139:14 “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well”  When God created us, he created us in his image.  He already knew when he created us that we would not be perfect, that we would have flaws, dysfunctions and make  A WHOLE LOT of mistakes, but yet he loved us enough to still create us. In that one moment I almost lost sight of that very thing. We were wonderfully, fearfully created made by the Master and we are all unique in our own way. This world can be very cruel and harsh, but when we can grab a hold of who God has created us to be and tap into the uniqueness within ourselves, what he has given us needs to be shared with the world.  when God created you he broke the mold. Just think if we were all created the same.  Yeah! I know BORING, but he didn’t because of who you are, what he has created you to be and what you have to offer is what we need in this world that has grown cold.  When you look in the mirror and think about who you want to be like, dare to be the best authentic you that God has created to you to be. I always get excited when he comes in. So now when he comes into my Doctors Office I say here comes my Hummingbird. I smile big and listen to him sing. Not everyone will hear you, listen to you,  understand you, respond or even notice you.  They may even reject you, make fun of you or even ignore you, but don’t you ever stop being you.  Someone see’s you and love’s you just the way you are.

You Are The Original Copy

I went back to work thinking that I was better after being in the bed for four days with flu like symptoms. I probably received it fom my daughter who was sick the week before or it could be the fact that I work at a Doctors office where the flu is running rapid.  I always make sure to follow the correct procedures with keeping my hands washed and santizied, but it never fails when any of my kids are sick especially when their is vomiting involved I am bond to become sick too. As I tried to find the strength to work that day I felt me going fast as I barely had the strength to operate, so I went to see one of the Doctors and they immediately sent me back home for two more days with flu like symptoms.  I didn’t complain at all because the way I was feeling that’s exactly where I needed to be. I finally got home and got right back up under my covers and fell fast a sleep. I found myself In this room where it looked like people were being worked on and recreated. I kept seeing these pictures of me the past, present and the future. It was as if God was working on me, but yet there I stood watching it happen.  I asked God why are there so many images of me and he replied  I am creating you into what you shall be and I am sending these images ahead of you.  You are an original piece, you are copywritten.   I have all the rights to you and no matter how people may try to distort or try to duplicate your image they can never change the original copy. Psalms 139:14 “You are wonderfully and fearfully” I am taking all of pieces of your life  and making a master piece called “You”. Then I woke up and all I could remember is “You are an original copy”. We were all created here for a unique purpose and we are no accidient no matter how we may have gotten here.  NO MATTER where you may find yourself today God has a plan just for you. Not only were you created to give God glory, but you were created to make a difference and change right where you are. Sometimes the 1st change begans with us.  Maybe you have lost who you are, maybe you don’t even know who you are all. It is NEVER to late to began again and find out who you were created it to be. Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end”
