But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. 2 Corinthians 4:7

I am a weak earthen vessel, breakable, perishable, replaceable, but usable. I knew when I posted the previous post on belief that I would be put to the test in my belief. I have to say that yesterday when the "call" didn't come and today when the "call" didn't come discouragement sat in like an unwelcome enemy. I woke up early this morning praying that if the call didn't come I would be able to maintain my joy and keep my peace. Well I failed miserably. I had the typical pity party and was questioning the Lord and questioning myself. And then He showed me in His word that although I'm broken and discouraged, He picks up the pieces and restores me as long as I remain usable. To Him be the Glory!

2 Corinthians goes on to say how will be be persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed. We will be raised up with Jesus and it is all for His glory. This vessel that the Lord prepared before the foundation of the world was prepared for His eternal glory. As I walk this path and I allow the Potter to love me, mold me, break me, and use me, I experience more of His glory. Moses had to wear a veil because the glory of the Lord shown so brightly in his face that the people couldn't look upon him. I being a vessel of honor can behold the glory of the Lord because the Spirit of the living God dwells in me. I am being transformed in to the image of the Lord from glory to glory. 2 Corinthians 3:18 I can make a choice to wallow in my circumstances or choose to SEE His glory. He is working for good for me because He loves me with a GREAT love. I am His and He is mine! So come what may though they slay me I will PRAISE HIM!!!!!!!
