dust (2)… ( pondering 2 Corinthians 4: 3-18)

I am a jar of clay,

fragile, flawed,

dust, currently

moulded,

useful in some ways,

but dust,

the wonder is that

you place

your glory in me,

and bid me bear it

in all of my frailty, but

I am dust,

I cannot take this weight,

hold this light,

receive this wonder….

yet the wonder is that

I am held,

the weight is not mine to bear,

I simply receive it,

frail dust,

glory filled dust,

the treasure fills

and overspills

this jar of clay,

and I am overwhelmed

by glory…

dust and glory

meld to one.

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, and 2 lovely granddaughters). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off!
