So let me ask you something. Why would a women of opulence throw her pearls to the swine? In other words why would anyone put something of great value in a hog pin with a bunch of sloppy, messy, pigs who are bound to trample upon it and tear it down. Most pearls are precious, rare, & extremely valuable. Just like you!
"Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces."
I could tackle this subject from many angles. The most obvious being sexually. However, I'll forego that for today's post and I'll just focus on why it is we try to remain relevant in toxic environments? This scripture screams "run Forest run". Yet so many of us constantly give signifance to things or to people that are no different than the swine that God mentions in his word.
We obviously are pearl caliber ladies so why do we stay in scenarios where we have no ability to shine? Beats me, because God always offers a way of escape. Don't be tempted to stay where you are just because it's comfortable and familiar. Because it could also be stinky and toxic too. Instead, challenge yourself to step up to the level of luxuriousness that God intended for your life. Bottom line, pearls and pigs don't mix. When are you going to realize that? God saw your worth from day one. Even better still, he knew that you were someone special before you were formed in your mother's womb.
1 Corinthians 10:13
"There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it."
So knowing what you now know, its time you walk in victory! Leave those swine behind they're simply not worth your time. Step out on faith and sparkle like the diamond you are. Because you truly are a gem baby girl. I encourage you to press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. To God be the glory forever and ever!
As you go forward in your daily journey I extend love & peace to each of you. I pray that you find your "it" and that you OWN IT. That the chains of this world be broken off of you & that you walk in the light that God intended you to walk in.
With dedication & servitude
