The Twelve Pearls

God’s Thoughts to Me

The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl (Revelation 21:21, NIV).

In Between Time

image

Once upon a time the King of Heaven looked down upon the earth drifting in space, in a moment of eternity, in between time … a world He painted with beautiful, vivid colors of His love.

He saw only fractals hidden in between the chaos and darkness of an orphaned planet … a world lying in the cruel, merciless clutches of the serpent of evil.

The jaws of some fractals were like the gaping wounds of a shelled mollusk, crying silent, desolate tears of despair.

image

The King took the sand of the redemption bought by His Son and planted a living grain in each fractal, silencing the heart rendering cries with His tender love.

Just like His Son, every grain of sand suffered in silent seclusion until it finally died and a beautiful pearl was formed. (Stop)

Gemstones for the diadem of His Majesty … pearls shining brilliantly with the different hues of His love, entering through the Pearly Gate, singing and dancing with joy.

image

The Gate was built from a humble Pearl who once was formed from a grain of sand in an in-between moment of eternity; in utter seclusion, within the soft tissue of the mollusk of a dying world.

This grain of Sand willingly suffered relentlessly, finally died and became the Entrance into the Kingdom of God.

This in-between moment was planned and purposefully weaved into the blue print of eternity from the beginning of time.

Much love and sweet blessings.

  1. You brought creation and in between moments to light through your words in ways I’d never thought of before. Thank you for showing the ways he purposes all things.

    • Dear Ashley
      Our finite minds are not really able to grasp eternity and concepts like Jesus was slain before the foundation of the world, but with God, time is just His creation and it holds no boundaries for Him!

  2. “This in-between moment was planned and purposefully weaved into the blue print of eternity from the beginning of time.”

    I love that He plans and purposes everything. I find such comfort in that!

    • Dear Lisa
      Yes, to know that He has made complete provision for our redemption even before He created this world is truly such an assurance.
      Much love, dear friend.

  3. We are due to have our baby in a few weeks. If we have a girl, her name will be Suvdaa Therese. Suvdaa is the Mongolian (we’re from Mongolia) word for Pearl. And Therese means Harvester. Pearl Harvester.

    “This in-between moment was planned and purposefully weaved into the blue print of eternity from the beginning of time.” Beautifully said.

    • Dear Daja
      Will this be your first child? I am sure you are looking forward to your baby. I pray that Jesus will bless you and your family abundantly!!

  4. The Gate was built from a humble Pearl who once was formed from a grain of sand in an in-between moment of eternity; in utter seclusion, within the soft tissue of the mollusk of a dying world.

    Ah, Mia, a beautiful extended metaphor that lives in the light coming in from the One who is the gate.

    • Dear JoAnne
      Our Lord’s invitation to enter through the narrow gate and His words that He is the way make so much sense, don’t you think!
      Blessings
      Mia

  5. Jesus as our Entrance into the Kingdom of God. Beautiful words there Mia. I have never thought of Him that way.

    • Dear Rachael
      Yes, Jesus is just about our everything! He told us that He is the Way, the Truth and the Life and also that no one can come to our Pappa except through Him.
      Blessings

    • Dear Sue
      Your blog looks so interesting! Such a nice concept to make it a practical place to visit with recipes and all.
      Blessings

    • Dear Gail
      Oh, I just love those in between moments everyday that we can spend with our Lord in between all our chores!
      Much love
      Mia

  7. Wow. You make beautiful things out of words inspired by the One that lives within us. Deeply moving and thought provoking. Thanks for this, Mia.

  8. This is beautiful, Mia. When I was in college, a friend shared a short devotional talk on the subject of the pear…. she told us how it was formed by the irritation of the sand, and that imagery has always encouraged me during difficult times. He is forming me into a precious jewel.

    • Dear Lyli
      Yes, this is so true! Like gold needs to be refined, we need to go through many trials to stop trusting ourselves and live completely dependant on our Pappa!
      Blessings
      Mia

  9. “An in-between moment of eternity” ….the beautiful eternal significance of that moment. Had to stop by for a little word and visual treat at your blog today. Hope your weekend is great.

    • Dear Lisha
      What makes it even more spectacular is the fact that it has been in our Fathers’ heart even before He created the world!
      Blessings
      Mia

  10. Very interesting post. I had never thought about the sand to the dark to the pearl to the gates of heaven. But, I have wondered about those big pearls that make those gates. One day, I’ll see them.

    Great photos in your post too. Some snake!

    Thanks, Jenn

  11. Mia, do you know what I love the most about reading your heart here? I love each new thought God has for you, many of which are verses I’ve never read before. I love the daily devotional time I get when I’m here. Thank you, Jesus, for every one of Your perfectly planned in-between moments. Blessings in abundance today, dear friend.

  12. Hi Mia! I am coming to you from FMF.

    What a beautiful description of a creation moment, and framing it in the in-between. I never thought of that before! And thank you for visiting my blog today, it was nice to ‘meet’ you and see your smiling face 🙂

    Peace in Christ,
    Ceil

    • Dear Ceil
      Oh, that in between moment when our Lord stepped down from heaven to pay the price for our redemption, still leaves me in awe of His love.

      Mia

    • When we become still and live for a few seconds in those in between moments we can find our Lord in such a special way!
      Much love XX
      Mia

    • Yes, we don’t always realize how our Pappa uses everything that happens to us to work for our good and His glory.
      Much love XX
      Mia

    • Dear David
      Yes, what we see as suffering and trials our Pappa sees as fractals of the beautiful picture He is creating!
      Much love XX
      Mia

  13. What a gifted storyteller you are Mia…the in between is most certainly planned and purposefully weaved! lovely post.

    • Dear Mary
      It still takes my breath away when I think how our Pappa planned our whole redemption even before He created everything.
      Much love XX
      Mia

    • Dear Linda
      Yes, dear one, our Lord has made all the provision for our redemption and everything is going according to His design.

  14. Mia –
    Thank you for the reminder this morning that these in-between moments were planned & purposed by our God. I loved that thought this morning & found it to be so encouraging today. Thank you !
    Happy Friday & Blessings,
    Joanne

  15. What an amazing perspective of an in-between moment! I tend to think of them in irritation – too much time to just sit, not enough time to do more. Thank you for this reminder that an in between moment was all it took, on purpose, for my salvation. By His Grace. (visiting from FMF)

    • Dear April
      It is usually in these in between moments that we find our God! Let us often escape to that quiet time to find Him in the stillness.
      Much love XX
      Mia
