These three little diamonds are a remnant of a diamond bracelet that belonged to my mother. I took the bracelet to be resized to fit my wrist and this part had been clipped off and put aside in a small envelop. To me they were precious and I thought could have great purpose, so I asked the jeweler to make them into a necklace. I wear the necklace much more often than the bracelet.
While studying Romans this year it was exciting and inspiring to recognize how God purposely has chosen a remnant of people over the years for his purpose.
"So too at the present time there is a remnant, chosen by grace." Romans 11:5
Just as God can do a lot with a faith the size of a mustard seed, He can do a whole lot with a remnant of His faithful believers! So we must never, never, never give up!
"And with this the words of the prophets agree, just as it is written, 'After this I will return, and I will rebuild the tent of David that has fallen; I will rebuild its ruins, and I will restore it, that the remnant of mankind may seek the Lord.." Acts 15:15-17
