Restored Vessel

I was shattered and broken, but you, Oh Lord, have restored me. I was smashed like a clay vessel, scattered like pot shards among the hillside. Ground into the dust of the Earth as if walked upon by many feet. Unrecognizable from the slate, grass, and dirt.

But You, Oh Lord, saw me; you knew me and chose me. You cleansed the filth that covered me. You gathered me up, all my broken pieces. You took them up in your loving hands, and with skill, you crafted them together in perfect order. You sealed the cracks with pure gold; your love bound me up in your mercy and grace.

Because of your unfailing wisdom and love, you have glazed me over with your strength, wisdom, and understanding. Though I was nothing, you called me out and stood me on your Rock, driving me deep into your firm foundation for your great purpose. You purify me inside and out to walk in your righteousness for the glory of your Kingdom.

You have filled me with your Spirit, so I may dwell in your presence and do your will that you may rid me of evil things making me pure through refinement. You have declared over me redemption and peace.

As you have commanded, I have poured out my coffers to those who also were unworthy yet chosen. I have opened my hands to the poor and needy. I have listened to your commands and obeyed. I will continue to labor with my hands to seek to save the lost and help those in need for your glory. So help me, Lord, to do your will.

In my heart, I trust you. In my spirit, I hear you. I know your plan is perfect. So I trade what is temporary to build what is eternal. So I give all of me to make it all about you, Jesus. All for the sake of your will, purpose, and plan. All for the sake of Jesus Christ, my Lord.
