This is ONE of the two devotionals I am using this year. I am so glad that I have this particular one! I know many of women do not like Joyce Meyer, but I have always found some truth to what she shares, and how she shares. Thank goodness we are not all the same, right? I am so thankful that there are so many Christian speakers, where we can all find someone that inspires us right.
Anyway, on Wednesday night, I read that days' devotion. (Evening time seems to really be a better time for me to sit and dig into the Word some.) At the end of the devotion there was a little prayer that I prayed, and let me tell you ~ it brought me to tears. Tears of hope! Tears of recognition of where God has brought me. Tears of joy.
The prayer went like this:
Lord,You and I are both well aware of my imperfections. I ask You to shine Your light through my life, and know that You get every ounce of glory for it. Amen
The devotion was titled "Cracked Pots", and I have heard Joyce speak of this before. The theory is we are like clay pots with cracks in it. God is the light inside this clay pot, and through all of the imperfections in the pot (you and I) His light shines through the cracks.
I was given a jewel on Thursday morning. And the funny thing is, it came through face book! I promised the person who sent this to me that I would keep her name "anonymous", but I am ever grateful for her sharing her heart, and allowing me to see that indeed His light is shining through my life.
