This post was written for Kate’s Five Minute Friday prompt: cheer
2 Corinthians 4: 7 (NASB)
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves;
From Tuesday next week, my dear friend Wendy (Widow’s Manna) and I will be cheering on God’s Glory in a special way. We will be launching a two-month blog series: Breaking Light: God’s Treasure in Vessels of Clay. It is a series we have felt God call us to, shape and lead.
Each week we will share stories from around the world of deep loss, hardship, broken bonds and crippling illness, but also of God growing a community and ministry of powerful love through the breaking. As we tell our own stories and those of friends and family who we are interviewing from around the world, we pray that above all else God’s Glory would shine.
We invite you to join us on Widow’s Manna and Joy of the Spirit Within this Tuesday for the release of Breaking Light. Come join us in cheering on the Love God is pouring out around the globe. And be encouraged in your own physical, emotional and/or psychological hard- for what was meant to harm you, WILL yet bring beautiful life in and through the powerful treasure of God you carry within you. We will also be offering an opportunity to win beautiful pieces of art and (soon-to-be released) books to bless you, every week of the series.
