God, The Healer Of Brokenness

Good Morning friends! 

There is an old story that I am almost positive you all are familiar with...It's the Story of Two Pots.

One was perfect in every way.  The other had cracks and broken places.  Each day a woman filled the pots with rainwater she had collected and then carried them down the path to her home.

The first pot felt proud that she never spilled a single drop.  The other felt ashamed because no matter how hard she tried, she lost a lot along the way.

One day the two pots overheard the woman talking with someone who lived nearby.  The neighbor exclaimed, "The flowers along your path are so beautiful!  What's your secret?"  The woman answered, "One of my pots is broken, and the water that spills out helps the flowers grow every day."

A Path of Beauty

BROKEN! .......Does God really want a vessel that is Broken?

So Often, we feel that we must be perfect in order to be used of God...
God..... HE takes the broken and makes something lovely from it. 

The second felt as though it was useless.....Who wants a broken pot?  Thank goodness, God can change brokenness and use it for HIS GLORY!

Food for Thought!!

God....took what was PERFECT.... HIS son, and made Him broken in order to bring us healing!!!!

Lovely pictures, Shug. Does that broken pot belong to you? You are so right about brokenness. I think almost every man of God in the bible had something wrong with him!!! Except for the perfect, blameless, so perfect in every way as the perfect sacfifice.
