About the Poem
I can't take credit for this poem, for I am not a poet. It was, rather, given to me by God as a Word of encouragement to His people that, through the broken places in our lives that often cause us to feel that we are of no use, His Love can flow out to reach others.

|by One For Him
Broken vessels, fit for service
Once, when whole, what could they do?
Only hold within themselves
That which they poured out by choice
But, once broken, looking useless
What can that vessel hold within?
Nothing - for what pours inside
Flows out, as it is meant to do
Through the cracked and broken places
In our lives, His Love flows out
Reaching those we would not pour to
What we cannot hold within
Needing daily His refilling
First for us, and then to them
Yielded vessels, now made worthy
By forgiveness of our sins
Thank you, God, for broken places
Of great value in Your hands
Whole myself, I might not serve You
Broken, You may have control
Pouring in as You desire
Sometimes more and sometimes less
Always that to reach to others
Through my yielded brokenness
