The Broken Vessel

Posted on: 7-15-112014

cracks

Each and every time our heart is broken, a crack is left. Sometimes the cracks are barely noticeable…only we realize they are there. Other times, the cracks are large enough to be observed by those who know us best, yet they are still hidden to those in the distance. The most devastating heartbreaks leave not only large cracks, but gaping holes as well…holes that everyone may see. As we look at our shattered, broken lives, we may wish that we didn’t have any cracks at all. We may wish that we were completely whole, without any traces of damage. However, consider this…if a light of some sort is placed in a perfect vessel and the vessel is sealed, no light can escape. If a light of some sort is placed in a vessel that has been damaged, however, it will shine through each and every one of the cracks and gaping holes and light up its surroundings. Always remember that God has a purpose for every moment of heartache we endure. He can and will use each and every single crack in our hearts if we allow Him to. Our deepest heartbreaks may yield that largest cracks, but we must remember that the largest cracks allow that most light to shine through.
