GEMS…The Other Precious Stones
While listening to Big Gipp’s, ‘Mutant Mind Frame’ again, I heard him rap these words and just like the first time I heard them, they penetrated my mind and Soul once again, causing me to pause and really think about the ‘truth’ within them. The truth in this statement stands in so many different situations, from material ‘things’ that we choose for ourselves, to the places we choose to spend our time, to the people we choose to have in our lives. Most of all, I feel that this truth is no stronger than in the area of our intimate relationships, those individuals that we search for to spend our lives with or enter into relationships with.
Now, it’s true and should be practiced, that we settle for nothing ‘less than the best’ for ourselves, especially in our relationships but there are times when individuals come into our lives that GOD meant for us, but due to certain circumstances in their life we tend to overlook them because they do not seem to be that DIAMOND we are searching for. We might be attracted to them, like their conversation, feel great in their company and even share many things in common with them but even with all of this being apparent, we still feel that the one thing that they lack keeps them from being our DIAMOND.
In this case, I feel that these individuals are our GEMS. The DIAMONDS that GOD meant for us to have in our lives, shining just as bright and as brilliant as the DIAMOND we seek, actually, even brighter, because GOD created them for us and our happiness. If we sit back and take into consideration ALL of the traits and characteristics that they possess, that we like or adore, we’d see how Precious of a Stone they truly are and not overlook them.
If you have a GEM in your life but are continuing to search for a DIAMOND, take a second look and consider if this person is the DIAMOND you seek in the form of a GEM that GOD has designated for you, if so, you have found your DIAMOND and you will have to look no further.
