TITLE: Sea Glass

Can anyone tell me if sea glass is a singular or a plural noun? Is it "sea glass is" or "sea glass are?"
One of my family's favorite hobbies is to collect sea glass. Sea glass are shards of broken glass that are cast into the sea and worn down by their journey through the ocean. As the sea glass is worn down, it obtains a 'frosted patina' look. When it is thoroughly smooth and frosted it becomes the ideal piece of sea glass. Sea glass can be used for jewelry, decor, or just something fun to collect.

I can't help but feel we are as sea glass. When we first find Christ we are broken. Trying to handle us, people who loved us were cut by our harsh and sharp ways. But the Lord met us where we were and knew just what we needed to make us beautiful treasures for His glory.

After trusting Jesus as Savior, we were cast in to the "sea" of the Christian life. Through arduous and trying circumstances, our rough edges are worn down .Before long you begin to see that beautiful "frosted" look of a Christian on fire for the Lord. When you trust in the Jesus, the roughest of circumstances only become opportunities to allow God to wear down those rough edges and make you a truly beautiful person for God.Finally when we have finished the Christian life, we appear on the "Heavenly Shore," the Lord picks us up and takes us to His home.

Are you becoming discouraged in your difficult and trying circumstances? Remember that when you come in contact with something rough, God can use it to smooth down your own rough ways and give you that "frosted" look of a child of God.
"My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into diverse temptations;
Knowing this that the trying of your faith worketh patience." (James 1:2,3 KJV)

I encourage you to read the James 1: 1-18 about what God has to say about trials in your life.
