God gave me a word to deliver at church this evening.
Afterwards, I was approached by a friend and told: “You need to put that on your Facebook page, people really really need to hear that”.
So here it is, I hope you are blessed by it also….
In the pre-service prayer time our pastor was thanking God that He can restore ruins and use us even as broken vessels. I then clearly sensed that there were people in our congregation who were struggling with memories and past hurts, wondering why God was still allowing them to feel the pain and allowing the cracks to remain. God said to me; “Those are ‘mercy cracks’. They are there because through them you will recognise the pain in someone else and be able to reach out and minister to them in a way that others cannot”.
It is through these cracks that God’s love, grace and mercy can flow out into the lives of those around you who are hurting.
