Broken Vessels

Have you heard the song Amazing Grace {Broken Vessels}? For some reason, each time I hear this song I'm moved by the lyrics and the deeper meaning behind them. It's those moments where the words meet me where I am in that point in my life, captivating my soul, and resonating deep down into my roots.

I love that I can go to Him as I am - broken and empty handed - with really nothing to offer. Knowing that even in my darkest hour I am still loved and not forsaken by Him. Never forsaken by Him. Through the good, the bad, the ugly, His love endures and the strength is everlasting.
Everything I do, I want it to honor You. Whether it's through my daily work grind, the way I love friends and family, my reaction to a bad situation; I want it all to glorify Him. At the end of the day, if people see You through me, then it's been a great day. Fellow brothers and sisters, please understand that you are being watched intently by society. Use that as a vessel.
In a world where love is superficial, comes with strings, isn't pure, it's so beyond comforting knowing that I have His love. With that hope and faith, I really can endure anything that this world hurtles my way. Thank you, Jesus, for laying your life down to raise this broken girl to life.
