"Showing that trials can make one betterAnd there can be purification through fire"

So absolutely true )Beautifully written and an incredible message. Great work!

This is an eye-opener... as all your other works are...

You make purification sound beautiful, but I feared for those glistening bars. I can only imagine the price they paid to become silver.

Great, metaphorically speaking. And so very true. The only way to purify gold, or silver, is to put it through the fire. A very real principal, especially for Christians. :o)

Heh, I liked this one. The meaning matches chapter 1 to my poem, "They Say". _ Anyways, keep writing!

Well, your belief in your views and your attitude towards them shows that you've put a lot of thought into your work.

However, I can't help but think of a more literal interpretation of this metaphor. Fire is a destructive force, and if you've ever seen a face scarred by heat, you know just how destructive it can be. While some people are, indeed, made stronger by their trials, it is often a tradeoff: give up a part of yourself and the rest of you will be stronger to make up for it.

Is it worth it?

Anyway, I like the fervor of your words, even if I doubt the message. I respect the passion you convey.

such a cool analogy... my words can't do it justice :-)

Very nice. Sorry I haven't been paying much attention to your poetry lately But I like this. What doesn't kill us, ultimately makes us stronger, ne?

Many of us need this encouragement and call to faithfulness. Thank you for being one who listens to the Spirit and using your gift to express truth.
