Sea Glass - In the Hands Of The Father All Is Made New

Sea Glass

The brokenness of our lives, in the hands of our savior, is sea glass that God shines through to reveal His love, beauty and truth to others. But if we will not yield our lives, if we quit and walk away, then not only do we lose, but others don't get to see the beauty of God's hand on life.

Here's what Hannah Martin wrote about sea glass:

Shattered and broken, unwanted and used
Sharp useless pieces that no one could use
Tossed in the ocean without care or thought
Something that once had value, that someone once bought
Falling down deep to the ocean floor
No hope, no plan, no purpose anymore
For years it would toss through the pull of the waves
Changing in size, color and shape
Dragged through the rocks, the shells and sand
Till one day it washed up onto the land
Shining in the sunlight, a jewel on the ground
What once was unwanted, now a treasure found
Now it is searched for, now people seek it
Because of it's suffering, now people keep it
We all have our "sea glass" that we try to hide
Our broken pieces that we stuff down inside
Our hurts and our sufferings that need time
Time with the Healer so they can sparkle and shine
In the hands of the Father all is made new
Lord let my suffering draw others to you.
