Our Daily Elder Devotional
We claim no originality for these devotions. One of our elders searches various sources and finds a daily devotion. Consider this a gift from Clinton Avenue Reformed Church: www.clintonave.org.
Today’s devotional is from my heart to you.
We Are Imperfect, but Loved by God
We are all imperfect, but we have so much that is good within us, gifts that God has given us. We are like broken shells that are found on a beach. Broken shells teach you not to look at our imperfections…but to look at the beauty…the great beauty of what is still left.
Help me to truly accept myself just as I am, Lord, so that I may sing the song in my heart…for no one else has my song to sing…my gifts to give. (Carol Hamblet Adams)
1 Thessalonians 3:9-10Amplified Bible (AMP)
9 For what [adequate] thanksgiving can we render to God for you for all the gladness and delight which we enjoy for your sakes before our God?
10 [And we] continue to pray especially and with most intense earnestness night and day that we may see you face to face and mend and make good whatever may be imperfect and lacking in your faith.
