A Broken Vessel

Psalm 31:12 "I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel".

We are not forgotten..we are a constant on His mind. We see a once, seemingly perfect piece of treasured pottery with perfection and purpose. But in life, perfection is shallow and's the imperfections and flaws that produce character and intrigues the hearts of man.
Brokenness transforms us, brokenness creates in us a new heart, a new mind, greater understanding, compassion, hope, incredible joy, appreciation, respect, creativity, and true rest.
In brokenness, we find ourselves open to new visions. We grow bold and step outside of what has always been our norm. We can find life, real life, in brokenness. The Potter's hands will remake the broken vessel and it will be as new again. He has chosen these vessels and they have chosen Him, He will gather the pieces of the broken vessels and once again in His love-scarred hands create for Himself a masterpiece.
