Clay shards

Well, now marks the time of a new school year in the Cherry house. We are excited this week as we jump headfirst into all of our fall activities, from ballet classes to cub scouts, piano and homeschool co-ops. I have really sensed his grace in my life these past few weeks, and a fresh hunger and zeal within to know HIM....my creator even more intimately than I have before. When I hear news or read about things going on in the world today, I quickly become depressed and overwhelmed. But each time I read my Savior's word and focus my mind again on HIM and his plans for my life, I feel my strength renew like the eagles'.
Well, I'm praying right now about what God would have for me in the future, It is still in my heart to write a book, but I am not sure if this desire is from the Lord or if it's just a childish fantasy I still am holding on to. I'm never quite sure WHAT book I need to write. I'm leaning toward a children's fantasy novel, but I'm just not sure. So I continue to pray and ask him to show me His will and to put HIS desires in my heart as I delight myself in Him.
Been trying to come up with a cool name for our homeschool lately also....something to reflect our family's identity in Christ.
God is so good. Every day I sin in a million different ways, not on purpose, but mostly just because I'm so good at it. And every morning, I wake up. And Voila! Fresh grace and mercy and he's still my friend and on my side and actually LIKES me and wants to hang out with me. I can't quite get my head around it. But it's true.
Broken, dirty clay vessels, that's what we all are. And yet God will often take broken clay shards and somehow transform them by His spirit into vessels of honor. How crazy is that?
