Earthen Vessels by Raymond A. Foss

The treasures of Heaven
the love of God
God alive within us
indwelling in our hearts

Earthen vessels only
flawed and chipped, broken
yet holding something so precious
within us ever, the love of God

We are to be filled
to be given the living waters
to be poured out for others
that they in turn may be filled

A procession of vessels
earthen jars, clay bowls
each of us holding
a piece of our sovereign Lord
