Broken Vessels

An excerpt from chapter 1.broken vessels, empty vessel, clay pot, pottery, spilled out

“Almighty Father, how timely is Your Word to me. You gave me new understanding today.

You desire a broken spirit. When we are broken by You or by the circumstances You allow in our lives,

we become useable, moldable, flexible. . . .

You allow my spirit and my heart to be broken.

You allow my flesh to die that I may be used by You.”

[An excerpt from Three Days at Sea by Delana H. Stewart.]

“The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.” Psalm 51:17

Three Days at Sea can be ordered directly from CreateSpace or from

Since there are twenty-five chapters in my new book Three Days at Sea: Soul flotation when the waves are pulling you under, I decided to share a quote a day (one from each chapter) until Christmas. Hope you enjoy!
