A swordsmith takes it from it’s home, dips it into the fire until it’s burning hot, then beats it with a hammer on an anvil to bend and change it’s shape.
Then it’s drowned in water to cement it’s shape before the process is repeated over and over and over. Countless burnings, beatings and drownings before it finally reaches its completed state: a beautiful, sharp, cunning blade, built tough to endure the worst that life could throw it’s way.
We are swords in the making…life will test us, burn us, beat us and drown us…but throughout that process, know that if you keep your head up and endure the worst, you are destined to be a sword.
