Christian Jewelry

Christian jewelry has two kinds of beauty: visual beauty and the absolute beauty of faith in God. There is nothing better than wearing a lovely pendant or bracelet that also celebrates the Lord. Every time the wearer or others see this wonderful work, they are reminded of how all beautiful things come from God. Being continually reminded of the existence of God can be a source of strength throughout the day.

I have to confess a weakness: I'm an absolute jewelry junkie. Clothes are definitely a vice, too, but when it comes to jewelry, I'm really in trouble. Maybe it's because jewelry tends to be more expensive than clothes, but I have come to the conclusion that I am dangerous around jewelry--not to others, but to myself (and my budget). In fact, when I go with my friends to the department store, we have an agreement: they shepherd me around the jewelry section, I whine and complain, we arrive on the other side, and the danger is behind us.

The Power of Christian Jewelry

However, Christian jewelry has actually put a positive spin on my weakness. For example, after several years of diligent effort, I overcame a very destructive personal problem that was getting in the way of everything: a productive life, my relationships with people, even my relationship with God. It was a very scary time in my life, but I got through it. As a reminder to myself of all I had gone through, as well as what I never wanted to return to, I purchased myself a Christian Agape bracelet.

This piece of Christian jewelry was special in several ways. First of all, it was simple but beautiful. Second, it didn't cost me much money at all; in fact, it was incredibly inexpensive. Yet its value to me is priceless. It helps me mark an important milestone in my life, where I've triumphed over an obstacle that once seemed insurmountable. Since then, I've worn this bracelet every day as a source of strength. It's more than a piece of pretty jewelry; it's also a reminder that God is with me wherever I go, and He shall never abandon me as long as I don't abandon Him.
