Quit whining~Start shining!!!

When modeling diamonds for catalogues, the diamond is most often placed against a dark background. The darkness makes the diamond seem all the more brilliant. And when it is lifted towards the light, it sparkles all the more. A diamond is pretty all by itself, but by putting it against a black background and lifting it up to the light enhances it's radiance all the more.

What a perfect picture of joy! True spiritual joy shines brightest against the darkness of trials, tragedy and testing. And the blacker the background ~ the greater the brilliance!
Amidst the darkness surrounding us ~ may we shine brightly for our Master! When our joy shines amidst the darkness of our trials, the blackness only enhances it's brilliance.
Philippians 2:14-15- shine like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people.
Quit whining~Start shining!!!
