Clay jars [ 2 Corinthians 4 v 7- 18]

As he looked out at the what had been the path before him, all he could now see,  everything was covered with snow, and he felt panic taken hold of him.Then he heard the guide who had been  leading ,saying, keep your eye on me, and walk were my imprints are in the snow.  Often in life we feel panic filling our hearts, we look for a way forward, seemingly in vain.The
apostle Paul describes us as earthen vessels,jars of clay, I like those words
for it reminds me how fragile we all are, how prone we are to panic, and to despair. Now what I love about the apostle Paul, he tells us how it is,read
what he wrote, of the trials he suffered, never do you read of him saying, 'I don't need this'. He declares ,'Therefore we do not lose heart.Though out-
wardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day'.[2 Corinthians 4 v16] That inward renewal came from God, Paul wrote
be strong in the Lord and the power of His might[Ephesians 6 v10]As earthen vessels need to be filled with that power day by day. But we also
need to remember that we have a guide, even Jesus, so let us fix our eyes, [super glue our eyes] on Jesus.[Hebrews 12 v2].

                                              A  prayer
Dear God you know how fragile we are, easily upset, you know, so help and guide us in Jesus name Amen.
