God’s Earthen Vessels ~

We are jars of clay,
God’s earthen vessels
filled with His power
at all kinds of levels.

Power to open,
eyes that are blind
power to enlighten
the uninformed mind.

Power to proclaim,
to all the Good News
power to rise above
any opposing views.

Power to know,
when we need to be still
power to go and do
what is God’s perfect will.

God’s earthen vessels,
with His power infused
fragile clay jars . . .
by Him to be used.


2 Corinthians 4:7

But we have this treasure
in earthen vessels, that the
excellency of the power may
be of God, and not of us.

We Are Earthen Vessels ~

We are earthen vessels,
treasures, yes we are . . .
God’s power bottled up
in each and every jar.

So when we are troubled,
we do not fret or stress
instead we claim victory
that in Him we possess.

And when we’re perplexed,
our trust in God we declare
so that we will not fall
into a state of despair.

And when we’re persecuted,
our lives are not shaken
for God’s promised us
we’d never be forsaken.

And when we’re cast down,
we are not devastated
for we know from God
we’ll never be separated.

We are earthen vessels,
inside of us Jesus lives
and daily into our life’s
His power He boldly gives!


2 Corinthians 4:7-10

But we have this treasure
in earthen vessels, that the
excellency of the power may
be of God, and not of us.

We are troubled on every side,
yet not distressed;
we are perplexed,
but not in despair;

Persecuted, but not forsaken;
cast down, but not dest

Always bearing about in the body
the dying of the Lord Jesus,
that the life also of Jesus
might be made manifest in our body.

Earthen Vessels ~

Earthen vessels,
filled with Light
giving us power
in the faithful fight.

Hidden deep within,
is a rich treasure
of confidence beyond
all we can measure.

Earthen vessels,
full of hopefulness
brimming with mercies
love and tenderness.

Holy Spirit’s indwelling,
a rejuvenation
bringing the promise of
eternal salvation.

Earthen vessels,
broken and reformed
so that we could be
in Jesus reborn!


2 Corinthians 4:7

But we have this treasure
in earthen vessels, that the
excellency of the power
may be of God, and not of us.

1 Peter 1:3

Blessed be the God and Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ, which
according to his abundant mercy
hath begotten us again unto a
lively hope by the resurrection
of Jesus Christ from the dead,

Broken Vessels ~

Earthen Vessels ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Broken vessels
weak little things
but, oh what hope
Jesus brings.

Cracked and crushed,
each one of us
even more reason
in Him, to trust.

Broken vessels,
redeemed from sin
but, oh what power
now dwells within.

Made of dust,
will return to same
but our fate . . .
Jesus overcame.

Broken vessels,
damaged from abuse
but, oh how our lives
God, still can use!


Psalm 31:12

“I am forgotten as a dead man
out of mind: I am like a broken vessel.”
