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.



Linda settles

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......

I keep thinking of Gideon when he fought the Mideanites. God instructed him and his men to break the vessels so that the light would shine thru.
