A Broken Vessel

 
 

A Broken Vessel
By Tom D Blakely
~

O child of God have you been broken yet?
Has godly discipline had good effect?
Whenever you are going through a test
Know God is working for your best.

God cannot use us as we are
From self and pride we must be free,
So broken vessels God requires
The weaker we, the stronger He.

~

Do not despise the chastening of the Lord
Nor be discouraged, learn to trust the rod.
For whom the Lord loves He will discipline
A proof you are a child of God.

God cannot use us as we are
From self and pride we must be free,
So broken vessels God requires
The weaker we, the stronger He.

~


“My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord,
nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him;
for whom the Lord loves He chastens,
and scourges every son whom He receives.”
[Hebrews 12:5-6]
