    For as the rain comes down and the snow from the sky, and doesn't return there, but waters the earth, and makes it bring forth and bud, and gives seed to the sower and bread to the eater; so shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return to me void, but it shall accomplish tha...

    I See You from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. When I was young in the Lord, I felt insignificant in His eyes. I had been beaten down by life pretty good and often the clothes I wore had as well. When I started going to church, I was often surrounded by people wearing suits and driving cars ...
  • David said to Saul, Your servant was keeping his father's sheep; and when there came a lion, or a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock, I went out after him, and struck him, and delivered it out of his mouth; and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and struck him, and killed him. ...

Broken Pieces

  • So I went down to the potters house, and there he was working at his wheel. And the vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potters hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to do. Then the word of the LORD came to me: O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter has done? Jer. 18:3-6 ESV

    I was always amazed at how beautiful the pieces of pottery were when they came out of the kiln. My friend owned a potters wheel and they were always making something amazing. There never seemed to be waste. If the plate that they were making got ruined, she would just take it back to the wheel and add some water. In a few minutes she would spin a work of art out of the mess of clay, then hand paint it with a glaze and heat it in a furnace. After being heated, it would come out so beautiful.

    Many of us have become wrecked works of art. We start out with so much potential and promise but can become broken. The dreams that we once had can be shattered into a million pieces. What was once beautiful, can become dark despair. Then you begin to wonder why do you get up at all.

    Know today that the Lord is able to put you back together. No matter what your life looks like now, there is still hope, there is still a future for you better than you ever expected. And when the furnace comes on, do not panic, it is just part of the process. I have seen God take my broken life, and fix it. He will do it for you as well.
