goldsmithYou may have heard the story of the old goldsmith who kept putting the unrefined gold back into the fire, over and over again. Finally someone asked him, “How long will you continue to put the gold back into the fire?” and he answered, “Until I see my own reflection.” When God keeps you in the fire, He is being good to you. He is the patient goldsmith who sits by the fire and carefully tries you until you are pure before Him, until He sees His reflection in your life

Sessions in Pain, pg. 166

 We are in the capable hands of the God-smith/Goldsmith. The one who shapes us into His image, day by day and moment by moment. His loving hands are ever on the the gauge working and watching to bring us to Him in the Eternal. The God-smith is patient as He sees our beautiful and strong end in Him.


“He maketh my feet like hinds’ feet, and setteth me upon my high places. Psalm 18:33 KJV hinds feet on high places
