The Beauty of Brokenness


James Banks- Kintsugi is a centuries-old Japanese art of mending broken pottery.

   Gold dust mixed with resin is used to reattach broken pieces or fill in cracks, resulting in a striking bond. Instead of trying to hide the repair, the art makes something beautiful out of brokenness. (Google image. Broken dish with gold in cracks.

#149 Go Alone With God


Dr. Wesley L. Duewel: Ask God. Wait on God. He will refill you again and again. You must stay filled with the Spirit to pray in the Spirit.

   You must wait on God if you would be refilled. You must feast on His words, chapter after chapter, if you would be refilled. (Google image, A prayerful church).

Sanctification


Jean Oathout: Have you ever wondered just what "sanctification" means? Let's explore it today, to learn what it means from God's point of view.

   When someone hears the Word concerning Christ's sacrifice for their sins on the Cross, some 2,000 years ago, and they believe it's for them [1], their acceptance of His provision for them seals their future with Him in glory. 

   They become pure and free from all guilt or evil; sanctification is acceptance by God, given through belief in the shed blood of Christ Jesus. We are then challenged to walk out a sanctified life, bringing honor to Jesus. (Photo by Lisa Buffaloe)

#148 First, Get the Vision


Dr. Wesley L. Duewel: Ask the Spirit to let you see the world's people and their need with the loving eyes of God. 

   Then you will understand why Nehemiah wept, why Isaiah, Jeremiah, Paul, and a host of others wept.

   Then you will understand why Jesus wept. Ask the Spirit to let your heart feel earth's pain as the heart of God feels it. Then you will weep. Your heart will weep, and if you prevail long enough, your eyes may also fill with tears. (Google image, Prayer
