One of our continual struggles, as women, is to believe in our value in spite of our pain and past mistakes. I am a pearl will empower you to accept God’s love and forgiveness, recognize that no matter what you have done or what you have experienced you were created for a purpose, and that God sees you as a pearl of great value.
Based on the parable of the pearl found in Matthew 13:45-46, I am a Pearl unfolds key principles in overcoming painful pasts, improving the present, and embracing the future.
One may ask, “Why a pearl and not a diamond?” When you study the pearl--the meaning, the value, the symbolism, and the creation process--it is a natural comparison. The pearl is the only gem that emerges from nature requiring no cutting or sculpting to enhance its splendor. Like a pearl, you entered into the world as God created you; man cannot take credit for your magnificence.Prepare yourself for a life changing perspective on your experiences, and confirmation of God’s unfailing love.Always remember, "You are His perfect creation, created for His glory."
