My son shared something with me yesterday that has led me to appreciate what God does in our lives even more.
When we want to plant something we may go out and buy a pot. The pot is very important. It holds the soil,seed and water. But what the pot doesn't do,is cause the seed to grow. What is going on inside of the pot is more important. The seed takes root,and grows and eventually forms into a beautiful flower or vegetable.
Our bodies are like the pot. We are but a vessel. What
(a children's poem)
I have an old tin paintbox in my sideboard drawer
Now and then I'll take it out from its little store;
Paint pots black and white; yellow, blue and red
Oh, how I enjoy to mix these on my brown palette!
Red and blue make purple
(A shade darker than myrtle);
Yellow mixed with blue make

Stand Up and Fight!
In dark, obscure and shrouded cultures
Demons prey on believers like vultures;
A world going crazier by the day
Yet still some warriors have feet of clay.
Ensconced in our comfort zones
While Christian brothers are fighting alone;
Why care about what we can't see
As long as we are blessed and free?

Most beautiful creature in all creation;
Model of perfection; blameless and wise
Craved the most exalted Station;
God's Throne he wanted as prize.
Adorned in jasper, onyx and gold
Chrysolite and sapphire;
Iniquity made him proud and bold;
Godhood his consuming desire.
Driven from heaven in total
