What a Beautiful Soul You Have

Here’s another piece from my Facebook notes from a while back:

Well, there’s been some turbulence these past couple weeks, and it’s been busy as anything. But among all that, God is my peace, my rock and my redeemer. I somehow manage to find time to sit and just chill in his presence, and a few nights ago I came up with this little piece of imagery.

Ok, picture a diamond as big as your head. An extremely beautiful, clear diamond. Everybody’s got one of these gorgeous hunks of rock inside of them. It’s your soul! Now pour a bucket of black paint over it. Ok, well, perhaps not everyone’s soul is completely black, but most people’s diamonds are mostly covered. Think about it, is it actually possible to be perfect? Goodness, no.

This is the part that totally confuses me: some people will hold up this completely black goop-covered diamond and say, “Look at what a beautiful black soul I have.” Uh, ok…

There is also the other kind of person that will paint over their black goo with white paint. Often, it will all mix up and end up all grey and icky. Other times, they’ll end up with a white-painted diamond. It’s not black on the outside, but it’s nowhere near as pretty as the original, clean, clear diamond, and it’s still got the black goop all over it under the white paint.

Now picture a little floating white light. It’s reeeeeally bright. This is Jesus. If the owner of the soul-diamond asks, this little white light will go into the middle of the gooey diamond and start chipping away the black from the inside. But only if you let Him. Everywhere a little piece of black paint falls off, a ray of light shines through. Sooner or later, while the last little bit of paint is getting chipped away, the light glows out and covers it.

The soul I just described

Just picture it, a diamond as big as your head floating there in the middle of the dark world, glowing like a star. Rainbows glint off the surface here and there, it’s a beautiful sight!

Thanks for reading!
