Despite imperfections of this body,
my shell is an earthen clay jar
that's fragile, flawed and easily broken,
letting the Light of Christ shine.
Though not pretty on the outside,
I won't be mistaken
for a white-washed tomb -
God can use my weakness
to display His greatness.
I've chosen to be submitted
to His Will and Plan for my life.
In spite of exterior chips, dings and nicks,
Christ looks inwardly at my heart.

I love this poem. It has such great insite into our relationship with God. All of our imperfections are nothing compaired to our love of God. When we ask for forgiveness our souls are wipted white as snow. Thanks for the lovely poem!

I liked how you used the analogy of a clay pot and that God looks at the heart of a man or woman is such a wonderful, wonderful thing.

God bless,

-Bob
