Have you ever been at the end of your rope? Has life beat you up and left you for dead? Mistakes are all too common in my life. We are messed up.
Following God can be tough. The problems don’t disappear when we get saved. And the stuff of life even make things more difficult at times!
2 Corinthians 4:7-12 gives me hope when I read it. So many times I feel all screwed up and confused. I have little motivation for God. Apathy is all to real. There are moments when I see Jesus and press on. When I pray, there is a real connection, not always but sometimes. But there are times when you or I are at the end of the rope.
I have been writing about jars this month. Today is no different except that the jar is not something that I bring to God so He can fill it.
I am the jar. An earthen jar. A jar of clay.
Remember this: a jar is just there to hold something. You and I are the holders of something great!
This is verse 7 of the Corinthians passage: “But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.”
Let this post be an encouragement to you. Sure, I get it that life sucks and we can make mistakes. But the Word says that “He gives more grace.” James 4:6
So be reminded that when you are the end of your rope, you are never out of Hope!
