A FOUNDATION OF SAPPHIRES
Late Princess Diana’s engagement ring , in 1981 consisted of 14 solitaire diamonds surrounding a 12-carat oval blue sapphire set in 18-karat white gold and was reported to have cost, £28,500 at that time. It is now conservatively estimated to be worth about £300,000.
If the foundation be destroyed what can the righteous do? Psalm 11:3
Well… maybe nothing, really but “with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26
God is the Master builder and listen to what He says:-
“O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colours, and lay thy foundations with sapphires.” Isaiah 54:11
Really? A foundation of Sapphires? I thought sapphires were for ornamental purposes only!
My Lord has promised me a foundation of sapphires.
More precious than the ring worn by the late princess laid to rest at Northamptonshire.
A foundation stronger than any fluffy quagmire.
To display my splendour that’s well attired.
And because of this, I say goodbye to affliction.
There will be no more confusion.
No more tossing; no more turning.
Not heard of again the days of fretting.
The Master Builder Himself.
Creates a Masterpiece of me.
From my foundation of Sapphires…BLING!!!
