Hope, Encouragement and the Parable of the Cracked Pot Part 3
Posted by Second Chance to Live on July 17, 2009
We may have bought into the notion that our lives are too are cracked to be of use. We may find ourselves comparing our vessels to other vessels. We may be experiencing shame and sadness because we see ourselves as failures. In the process we may have developed a fear of failure. Consequently, we may be thinking about giving up.
We may want to give up trying to make a difference. We may be saying to ourselves, “What’s the use in me trying anyway and anymore?”. To that I would say, please continue to read.
With out you and I being just the way we are, hope would remain only a concept. With out you and I being the way we are — to some — hope would be lost. Because of who you and I are vision (s) becomes reality. Because of you and I people’s prayers are being answered.
Because of you and I, people are being set free. Because of you and I people are blooming and blossoming into creation. Because you and I those individuals will ultimately feed the masses. Because of you and I people believe in miracles. Because of you and I destinies are being birthed and dreams realized.
Because of you and I people have an advocate. Because of you and I people choose to get up…one more time. Because of you and I people learn to trust…again. Because of you and I people learn to love and be loved…again. Because of you and I people are inspired to pursue new opportunities and fresh possibilities.
Because of you and I people take risks. Because of you and I people are be drawn to the light of God’s love.
So when you remember or some one else reminds you of your crack (s) in your pot be encouraged my friend. Rejoice that cracks exist in your pot, for with out your cracks the flowers — people — along your path may never be watered.
And remember, “You are a Gift to Your World!
