Speak Through This Vessel

posted in: Convictions | 0

Greetings from wintry Iowa.


The Spokesman

Assailed by inadequacies, I wonder,

How can I do anything effectively?

Yet, the stars and all creation

praise You without a voice.

Moses, assailed by inadequacies,

spoke because You, Almighty God,

made his voice and called him.

Flawed disciples, filled with your Holy Spirit, spoke inspired truths.

Lord, You are the potter, not limited by our imperfections.

You carefully work the clay, heat, refine, beautify, perfect.

I am your vessel, Lord. You have called me.

You have given me Your Holy Spirit.

Therefore speak through this vessel

as You have ordained.
