A man asked a silversmith, how do you know when the silver is fully refined? The silversmith smiled at him and answered, “Oh, that’s easy – when I see my image in it.” If you’re feeling the heat of the fire today, remember that God has His eye on you and will keep watching you until He sees His image in you. No one likes those times when stress gets turned up, deadlines mount, and expectations seem unreachable. But sometimes, God uses heat in our lives to burn off the stuff that’s holding us back and tying us down. We just need to trust God through the pain.
