It's a choice to surrender every day to enter into this arduous process of refinement.
This painting depicts elements of the refining process as we enter in saying, “Yes, Lord, Your will be done”. With every painful moment we go through, every yielded decision and choice to be sanctified, beauty is revealed and the jeweled crown comes forth, evidence of the glory of God through Christ Jesus, making us holy as He is holy.
“We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.”
2 Corinthians 4:8-10
