Beautifully Broken And Wholly Loved By Jesus

| May 21, 2018

Have you ever been moved by someone’s care and kindness? This past weekend I introduced my friend to one of the pastors of our church. The pastor offered to pray for my friend and her family, a family that he didn’t know, and I was incredibly touched by how much love and care he had for people that he didn’t know.

“The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord:  ‘Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will let you hear my words.’ So I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was working at his wheel. And the vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potter’s hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to do. Then the word of the Lord came to me: ‘O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter has done declares the Lord. Behold, like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel.'” ~ Jeremiah 18: 1-6

Fear of fully trusting that He could mend and protect my fragile heart. Fear of failure.
