Silver, Gold, Dust, and Spirit

broken-potteryRemember him—before the silver cord is severed,
    and the golden bowl is broken;
before the pitcher is shattered at the spring,
    and the wheel broken at the well,
 and the dust returns to the ground it came from,
    and the spirit returns to God who gave it.                  Ecclesiastes 12:6-7


You are a clay pot, Child,

Meant to be gently filled,

Not with sin and darkness,

But that with which God wills.

My Holy spirit pure,

The word of faith alive

At work in the hard heart,

Transforming, changing lives!

You who one time were dead

As Laz’rus in the tomb

By faith in baptism’s death

Brings rebirth from the womb.

Mother Jerusalem,

The church, the womb above,

Birthed in light and goodness

Knit with the Father’s love.

Come forth, then, Oh, new man!

Come forth, you are set free!

The clay will turn to dust,

But you’ll return to me.

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
