A Diamond’s Shine

A Diamond’s Shine

written by: Greg Wooley


The shiniest of diamonds come from the blackest of coal
The wisest of wisdom comes from the most damaged soul

So many times things are not just as they look
We can’t judge the soup before it’s had time to cook

Embracing your pains, your misery and your brokenness
The transformation of your story is your chance to bless

Going through hell doesn’t mean that you’re there to stay
May every hurt be turned into compassion for another on this very day

It takes time and severe pressure for a diamond to transform
I pray you washed and made new at the end of the storm

Something so hard yet so precious is transformed from the blackest of coal
There are diamonds waiting to be uncovered from every hurt in the depth of your soul
