A Vessel God Can Use

A Vessel God Can Use

Much can be said
about the thoughts inside a head.
God gave us the ability to choose
whether to be good or to abuse.
A choice to trust and obey
walk with Him all the way.
Never to turn and run
His holy will be done.
He has smiled upon me;
mended my heart and set me free.
Rise to a brand new day
completely willing to say
I am a vessel You can use.
Outstretched arms
surrendered to him
choose to be inconvenienced and interrupted.
Donít let your soul be corrupted.
Be a vessel God can use.
This is the best choice to choose.
Ask God for the insight
to know when the time is right.
Be ready to help another
in Christ a sister or brother.
When God directs you into someoneís life
be there to ease their strife.
Love and support extended
your efforts will be commended.

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
