This is a sharp coral rock in Barbados, hurtful to touch, relatively untouched by the water.
This rock, on the same shore, has been smoothed and rounded by the constant force of the water across it at high tide. It is softer, able to be stood upon by tender bare feet, an accommodating shelter of sorts.
Water is a relentless and powerful force that shapes, changes, and affects by its very presence. Life gives us all lots of “water”…forces that change us. We may not like the changes, we resist, but eventually, we realize….we’re stronger, we’re smoother, we’re more of a refuge for other people to seek, we’re more beautiful. And I’m so thankful that God loves me enough to let me be more beautiful, more like Him. Be blessed today, Lisa
