Interesting video.

I was thinking at the end, that the coffee beans were the only thing that went in to the water 'broken', and came out whole. Hmmm...

Trust that in God's time I will understand.

Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things:... Psalm 98

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though... we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day my day....So fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal
2 COR 16-18

Doing nothing is the most perfect form of action, when I do nothing there is nothing left undone and there is nothing left to do.... The Way by Lao Tse

This gives one something to think about...

When we go through the boiling waters of life, if we hold on to God, we will always come out different...and always be better in the end.
Sometimes we are like the carrot, and God uses the water to soften us so we can be molded to His plans. Look what happens to a mashed carrot that is mixed right and becomes a beautiful souffle!
An egg may be fragile, but there are times when we need to be hardened so we can stand up to the work we must do. God's love is like the egg's outer shell... it protects us as The Spirit solidifies within us (as the outer heat rises), and we come out shaped so as to be used in many ways... perhaps a salad, or sliced to add beauty as a garnish, or to bring joy to a child at Easter!
Coffee beans emit the "odor" of what is inside even before put into the water... do we emit the Love of God? When adversity comes, does the perfume of your inner spirit "flavor" the water you've been put in? Do you hold your shape, yet change the circumstances? Can any passerby "smell" the aroma of God's Love and drink of it by being in your presence?

My prayer is that I can see myself in all of these examples and use what I learn... what wisdom the grandmother had! How gently she teaches!
But then Our Lord taught this way, too!

Step into the unknown with confidence! Trust that in the darkness of that first step there will either be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly!

This certainly gives a unique perspective to handling adversity. Thank you.

I'm an egg trying to become a coffee bean.
