He’ll Sea Us Through

So, yesterday I pulled this beautiful Trades of Hope necklace out of the mailbox. It’s called the Sea Glass Necklace.

This necklace is made by Jordanian women. They collect the sea glass from the Red Sea.

Sea What He Does

The Red Sea!!!!

You know. The one where Moses led the Israelites across dry ground and then as soon as they are safely across the walls of water meet and drown the Egyptians chasing them.

Unusual way to save someone, isn’t it?

Today I put on a piece of glass collected from that very sea. It is cloudy in clarity but smooth in texture. It is held on to a beautiful silver chain by a beautiful silver leaf.

It reminds me that God can use anything, a sea, a piece of glass, even me if He chooses, to rescue His people.

“When my glory is displayed through them, all Egypt will see my glory and know that I am the Lord!” Exodus 14:18

His glory is displayed. And as I wore this necklace today, I couldn’t help but wonder about the woman who made it.

What type of slavery is she escaping? How many people are being reached through her in order to show God’s glory?

And what would she think of me?

Me, who doesn’t typically buy “expensive” jewelry. Me, who is wearing her product wishing I knew who she was and how else I could help her. Me, who has an amazing to opportunity to share her opportunity with YOU.

Class on Glass

And then in the middle of testing today, a 7th grade boy leaned over and asked, “What is that on your necklace?”

I whispered in reply, “I’m really glad you asked, and I will tell you about it, but you have to be quiet and work on your test now. Ask me right after class.”

Another 7th grade boy heard the conversation. They both stayed to ask me about my Sea Glass necklace with the glass from the actual Red Sea. I even sent them off to science with additional questions about sea glass for their science teacher.

I didn’t sell anything today. I wasn’t even trying to. I did get to share the history of the glass, the Red Sea, and the women making the necklace though with young people.

World changers.

I have a feeling I will get a lot of jewelry questions this year. Never in my life have I looked so forward to off topic questions!

Would you like to wear your own Sea Glass Necklace? I wonder who would ask you about it and what you would tell them. Please let me know!
