the Lord is always transforming us. refining us to become more of the person He created us to be. not unlike iron being shaped. without pressure and heat, the iron would just continue to be a slab of metal: unformed, cold and not useful.
even in the times the pressure is stifling, may He continue to shape and mold me into the woman He intended me to be!
He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver;
being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
