What do you see?
Is this a broken and beat up boat doomed to disintegrate on land or is it a boat that is ready to be restored and returned to the sea to fulfil it’s potential?
How about you? How do you feel? Do you feel bruised and broken and ready to give up or are you open to God’s transformation with the belief that anything can change?
How about the places where we minister? Are we looking at some situations as though they are broken and beyond all hope or do we believe that God can really make all things new?
Help us to see and to be honest about the reality that we face but help us also to look to you and to be open to your Spirit working miracles and leading us into the new things that you have for us.
Thank you that you meet with us in our brokenness, bringing healing and hope. Help us to take your hand and to follow your lead that we might step into all that you have for us.
