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!
