It’s only one month since Christmas but it seems like ages. Over the last few days I have unravelled a bit and found it challenging to cope with some situations in my life. At times like this it’s hard at times to manage my emotions. And out they come, messily. Things like flailing my arms and doing a sudden sprint when running. Trying to get rid of the nervous energy.
I’m a cracked pot. Broken in places. Don’t have it all together. I can keep functioning but imperfectly. Times like this happen to me every now and then. Yes, always a reminder to look under the surface as there is something deeper going on. A d to look up.
This is part of lifes shaping. I love the references in the Bible to the master Potter. He doesn’t destroy the misshapen pot but reshapes the clay to make it into something more beautiful. It may be uncomfortable but worth it. May something beautiful be formed in me and the bits in you that you struggle with too.
Pakistan is number 8 in the Open Doors Top 10 for countries where Christians are most persecuted. Many work in menial jobs, including as indebted labourers (essentially slaves) in the brick factories. Even young children work long hours in horrible conditions. Please remember them.
One thought on “Crackpot…!”
That’s all of us cracked pots alongside each other.
God has not finished with any of us yet…the finished articles are going to be absolutely amazing and for His glory.
Thanks for what you shared Ade.
