Handmade jewelry as well as other types of jewelry is an extremely “emotionally charged” accessory to own or wear. Give a gift of handmade jewelry and you are giving a gift of love. I often now wonder why I am so passionate about hand crafting dangle earrings. I rarely in my life ever wore dangle earrings until now.
I started the handcraft jewelry hobby after one of the most hurtful experiences I ever went through in my life. I actually was not searching for a handcraft emotional healing remedy, yet, this one hobby in my life now has proved to “heal” those torn up feelings I had since Christmas 2013.
With each pair of earrings I make, I have one for sale and one to wear, I essentially have been giving back the love to myself that I felt taken away from me during the Christmas 2013 emotional trauma, or just “loving” myself by giving myself these handmade dangle earrings.
I know that sounds corny, but it is true. We can love our self even during times when it feels like nobody else in this world loves us. I suppose I had to do this for my own survival through the crisis as I did become suicidal. People who seek their own, who are lovers only of themselves and their own will do anything at any moment in time to another person without regard to how that will affect the other person. They have not the capacity to think beyond themselves or beyond those they immediately love such as their family and closest friends. Jesus is a lover of every human being and takes into account the feelings of each of us unlike vain glory seekers who seek only to please themselves and their own family and friends. Jesus loves the worst of the worst just as much as he loves the ones that actually love him. No man or woman can love God for real and do harm to another human being as these people done “willfully” and “purposely” to me on the traditional birthday of Jesus Christ. Jesus saw the entire scenario and evaluated it just as it was while these same people continued on with their own versions of vain babblings, deceits and lies. Lovers of themselves will go to great lengths to cover for themselves to do anything within their power to maintain a status symbol among their peer groups. True lovers of God will turn their face to the wall and pray for assistance and in due time that assistance does arrive.
The hand craft has brought life back to me. Love is a very strong emotion. The real love of Jesus Christ flowing from him to one who is wounded is a strong emotion. I felt the love of Jesus coming forth to me during the time these so-called “Christian” people were sending out their arrows of burning hatred toward me.
I prayed through the crisis, so I have to conclude the greatest love I received during that time alone and hurting was from Jesus. In conclusion I suppose I am saying if you feel like you have been treated cruel or harsh, Jesus can still come through for us in ways we never thought of or could imagine. I believe this is what happened to me. I believe this is the exact reason I started handcrafting jewelry.
It has been a vehicle of “love” flowing from Jesus to me to help heal the “hatred” sent to me from other people who continued on in their life working practical solutions to save face for themselves among their own peer groups. I might add these other people were people who “say” they are from the highest God, or “Christian people,” the same God who provided me with this healing. They used their minds and practical solutions along with money to work out scenarios for others to see and most likely to try and help them heal from their wounds as well. It is doubtful they prayed one honest prayer about the entire situation, but just acted upon their internal instinct to take of number one, which was THEY.
People can be cruel to us in ways that are so subtle it is absent to the natural eye and felt only by the person who is receiving the cruel act, but Jesus is a man who sees it all, and can come to us in our hour of greatest turmoil providing us with a remedy that sets in real long lasting “healing.” Jesus does not provide a temporary healing of any kind. If we can tap into the healing powers of Jesus Christ, his remedy will always be exactly what we needed and will be a long term healing, not just something to distract our minds for a little while, only to have additional problems arise because of rushed practical solutions. People don’t want to wait on the hand of Jesus to heal anything for them. They quickly get into gear and are guided by their own mind’s practical solutions. Sometimes those solutions are helpful. Other times a man-made practical solution only creates more grief. Jesus and honest prayers provide the “perfect” solution. Oftentimes it will be a solution you with your own mind would have never thought of, as this was the case with my handcrafted jewelry hobby. I would have never thought that this simple hobby could provide the healing I needed.
When we seek to please God rather than pleasing other people, we will receive divine remedies for our problems regardless of the nature of that problem. It is no wonder people think certain stones have healing properties. Others have probably experienced some of the same kind of happenings, remedies or healing as I have experienced with handcrafted jewelry making.
Whenever you want to give a gift to others that says “I love you,” give handcrafted jewelry as Jesus has given to me.
