I beleived I was not good enough to be God’s child. I never felt I was strong or wise enough to serve Him. I was right I am not good enough or strong enough; but He is. It is His good pleasure to love and use me to help further His kingdom. He indeed deserves all the glory.
God Uses Broken Vessels
High on the list of attributes God needs
In vessels chosen to His love receive,
Sounds strange to the world no doubt;
It is broken vessels that are thrown out.
I do not search the land for the one ornate,
High and lifted up in the exalted place,
For in their earthly beauty there is great stench,
They would ruin the sweet water heaven sent.
The wretched mass empty of all worth,
That is called a disgrace upon the earth,
I call to be mine, I make them new.
The Holy Spirt inside moves.
He makes a sweet smelling, beautiful treasure;
A glory that brings me great pleasure.
Filled to overflow with sweet waters flow,
Sent to heal yet another broken, empty soul.
I do things in a different way,
I search for those hopeless, damaged and decayed.
I am Savior, I died so this could be so.
I love to take nothing to make it whole.
So come as you are, do not be afraid I turn my face.
For this is what is meant by amazing grace.
The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart;
and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
