Redeemed & Repaired for the service of God
Posted January 26, 2013on:
How long ago was that?
I didn’t think I would ever forget the year I escaped your grip and shattered on the floor. It seems like yesterday. I remember the tears that flowed from each shard. But, I could not stay with you.
You did not love me.
You did not honor me.
I tried to please you. To make you happy. I tried, with everything I possessed, to make you feel secure. To prove how useful I was to you.
I was already flawed, and you knew exactly how to take advantage. You played the game well. I fell for it… for a while.
I know better now.
I know who you really are.
I know what you are capable of.
I know that I deserve better than what you gave me. I deserve God’s best because I am a vessel, crafted by the Master Potter. Though I am broken, He is piecing me back together.
I am no longer a vessel of dishonor, but a vessel redeemed and repaired.
Even though the repairs are visible to anyone who looks, I am useful. This vessel, once shattered in pieces has been restored. I am placed on the table of the King, and I know this is where I belong.
Though I am simple, I am willing to be used for His honorable service.
