I Don't See Much of a Jewel, but God Does...

And they shall be Mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up My jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Malachi 3:17

There are some days that I look in the mirror and I don't see much of a jewel, but God does!   I see bulges and wrinkles, but God doesn't look on us with human eyes. I see the results of all too many helpings of food, when I turned to food instead of turning to God to heal my aching heart. 

Fortunately, not only does God heal our aching hearts and bodies, when we turn them over to Him, but He sees us as only a loving Father could. God sees the good in us, even when we look through the eyes of shame at all the mistakes we've made. God sees the potential within us, even when we feel like failures. 

God is much more than that. He has confidence in us, even when we don't. He knows that if we turn to Him and let Him guide us, He will show us how to become His precious jewels. So precious, in fact, that His only begotten Son, Jesus, suffered persecution and gave His life, and arose for us, so that we could one day join God in heaven as His jewels. And they shall be Mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up My jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Malachi 3:17

Since this is an example of the positive influence God has made on my overeating, this may not reflect the whole meaning of the Bible verse.
