“Men throw broken things away, but God never ever uses any thing or any body until they are first broken.”- Michael Jeshurun

Break this vessel.

This heart of mine was full of so many emotions.  Like a vessel that was overflowing.

I allowed my emotions to overwhelm me.  My emotions were the center of my life.  I had to understand why I felt a certain way.  Only through understanding that emotion, could I move on from that emotion.  This caused me to become distracted by that emotion.  Not only did I feel that way, now I needed to understand why I felt that way.  I had to stop and give all my attention to that emotion and try to figure out why I felt that emotion.

Break this vessel Lord.

This heart that I have filled with the emotions of the world.  The emotions that have become a distraction.  Emotions that blind me to your grace and mercy.   I see them for what they are now.  A distraction.  It isn’t the emotion but what the emotion distracts me from.  If I am sad or feeling lonely, it distracts me from being grateful.  If I am upset or angry, I am not being humble.

Shame hides your grace, guilt hides your mercy.

Break this vessel and fill me up with you Lord!
