I know that you’re aware that I’m cracked. But a cracked cup?

There are times when I feel uninspired, and unsure of what I am doing. I have plans but don’t follow through.

There are times when I think back on my past mistakes and feel a bit low, but I’m learning to be better at that.

And then I read something like this:

If I wait until
all the flaws, chips,
and cracks disappear
I will be the cup
that stands on the shelf
and is never used
~ Joyce Rupp

I Am A Cracked Cup

Then I know that I certainly don’t want to be that unused cup. I realize that I must share my experiences. I must be authentic.

I must give of myself now, and not wait for that time when I am ‘perfect’ – for then my time may never come.

So I continue to be the cracked cup and find joy that I can continue to receive the many blessings I do.

And also, to some extent, share of my contents.

Do you too, at times, feel inadequate to do what you are ‘called’ to do?
