When life is a hot mess

For he will be like a blazing fire that refines metal, or like a strong soap that bleaches clothes.  He will sit like a refiner of silver, burning away the dross. Mal 3:2b-3a

Impurities can only be extracted from metal with extreme heat. The hot, messy refining process doesn’t happen in a place like Tiffany’s. When the heat is on it is possible that spiritual metallurgy is taking place in our lives.  Jesus didn’t come to make our lives easier; He came to make them gold.

Lord, you know how much I hate sweating, but the dross needs to go.
