Broken Vessels

Gianna Elyse Covers “Canvas and Clay”
(by Ben Smith, Chris Tomlin, Pat Barrett)

I am shaped to the tune of His grace

Yet, see the people I face

How can He pour in broken vessels

That which is precious?

For the broken vessel cannot appreciate

What flows through its cracks

Yet, the Potter (God) forms of clay

Purposefully and straightway

And what He completes

Can receive the Word He speaks

And sings into it

Thanks to my friends

Thank you for your friendship and patience with me as a broken vessel; God is patching me up, re-forming me. Sometimes, I am not ready or willing to receive something because I have yet to learn a lesson, or become a doer of the Word in that area. Essentially, there’s been fear…bitterness…and conditions which I allowed to hinder my love.

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

1 John 4:18

Prayer and Affirmation

Thank you, God, for helping me to do what I need to do. I pray you overshadow me with power and grace in the areas I am weak and tired. I pray you overcome my insecurities and help me to grow past them.

Wash me with your Word, Oh God, and let not the worries of this world hinder it (Matthew 13:22; Mark 4:18-19; Luke 8:14; Ephesians 5:26).

His Word will produce fruit from me, a positive growth (Isaiah 55:8-13).

He is able to complete the good work He started in me, perfecting my faith (Philippians 1:6; Hebrews 12:1-3).

Create in me a clean heart, O God (Psalm 51:10).

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

I did not realize that the #bloganuary challenge was initiated. Better late than never…
