Mumford’s Musings. “The World is Your Oyster.”


Mumford’s Musings.

The world is your oyster…

With God we can do anything (Philippians 4:13). There is huge opportunity waiting on the one hand but, there are a lot of irritants in life on the other.  Poison ivy on the skin as we brush past those irritants. Grains of sand that get under the skin can cause a major irritant.  Of course a grain of sand in an oyster shell eventually forms the jewel of a pearl.  It was Sir Winston Churchill who said, “If you are going through Hell, keep going!”  It was William Shakespeare who said, “The world is your oyster.” An idiom from ‘The Merry Wives of Windsor’ (1600).
Allow the irritants of life to form jewels within you.
Jewels that others will see form the adornment of God.

  1. How beautiful, Lord, that You have made us your dwelling place. May we forever be a pearl in the palm of Your Hands.

    Dear Father Nigel, I really like this take on things. Not too long ago I was reflecting on the things that had happened to me that had not been so good and yet how they had taken me on a remarkable journey to something better. Thanks you for a blessing to start my day at a moment when I needed a reminder as sometimes the things that have happened to me that change how I look on the outside have at times made me feel left out of aspects of life which I still hope for, so my prayer is that the things which really matter will be seen instead of the outside.
