Love poured out through broken vessels...


 
 
 
 
 
 
Lord if I am broken
Let your love be poured out
Through the crevasses that mar
The virgin beauty of my soul.
Broken on this soil of a hostile land
Fit me for your service, an extension
Of your hand.
Reaching, ever reaching, for the
Wounded heart of man
Let me ever bear your burden, Lord
But use me if you can.

Hi Linda,
I read this lovely prayer three times.......very slowly to feel the depth and gratitude......the pain.......the hope........How beautiful it is when God takes our shortcomings and pain........transforms them into blessings.......and then allows us to share them with others so that they too may feel His loving grace........Well said my friend......

Peace,

Bill :-)

This is beautifully written, Linda. We are each, in a way, broken...and yet, what a world this would be if each of us looked past our own flaws and helped to mend the "brokenness" in others...
