When I feel useless and unworthy and I don't know where God wants me or what He wants me to do, all I have to do is peek out my window and look at my not so perfect flower pot sitting on my front porch! It is still home to my Mother's Day plant, with a purpose all of it's own. I have also seen a chipmunk digging around in the dirt inside the pot. This is just another way God is choosing to use this broken and cracked flower pot. I could move the plant to another pot and it would probably live there equally as well. I am sure the little chipmunk could find more dirt to frolic in, if I got rid of the pot. Yet, I am keeping it as a reminder to me that God is willing to use me right where I am, as a broken vessel. He sees beyond the cracks in my life. He loves me regardless of my dirt and shortcomings. My trust in His plan for my life is growing, and He is using my pot as a reminder that He is not finished with me yet.
Learning to trust God . . . in my brokenness . . . One Day at a Time.
