The Jeweler’s Hand

posted by Guy Finley

Never run from any blow that life brings to you . . .for within you dwells a yet unknown Character whose Celestial Nature is to whatever may assail you as is the native element of gold to the mallet of a master jeweler — where from each blow delivered rises not only the softened sheen of a new luster found only in humility, but a new strength realized for each impurity revealed and removed — so that gradually we find a new life is fashioned for us, in a whole new form, by the deliberate crafting of the Jeweler’s Hand.

    Refine me God.

  • Billie Jo

    This speaks volumes to me personally.. I have been finding my self with a defeatist personality of lately, and I get so frustrated with myself.. I have so much opportunity, buy why do I hold myself back.. I have a beautiful family yet I don’t feel, I do enough for them…I have difficultly letting go and letting God have control.. I know that I got to get me out of the picture… God’s refining me I know.. Lord show me your direction not mine.. Allow me to have the success with this new business so that I am able to provide for my family.. I think the toughest areas of our lives, like the areas of responsibility for others.. are the hardest to give to God… But God can not enrich or bless us in those areas of our lives if he doesn’t have the opportunity to mold and fashion that area too…

The Interior Action that Builds Character
The character of goodness, of compassion and kindness that we would like to reflect and express before our friends (and enemies), requires that we place “its” life before our own. And yet, when we agree to this interior action of self-sacrifice, not only is our life returned to us, but we find t

Enter a World Where Goodness is Its Own Reward
Once we see it's impossible to please ourselves at the expense of the pain of someone else, we are released from the cycle of seeking a false comfort whose conflict compromises "winners" and "losers" alike. Only then are we free to enter a new world – above the opposites -- where goodness is its o

Step Into the Unknown
When, at times, the spiritual aspirant feels as though there's no reason to go on...because he can no longer believe in an imagined good somewhere ahead of him, he comes to what seems a complete dead end. And yet, it is exactly in this place that he must step through himself, and persist in the work
