Potter

On our journey with the Lord, it’s easy to forget that all things work together for good to them that love Him (Romans 8:28), which means God can use anything, any situation, anyone to help us become all that He created us to be. We are “God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” (Ephesians 2:10 NIV). Nothing we go through is wasted therefore. As we put our trust in Him and allow Him to work in us, though things may take a while to take shape –  it’s win win in the end as we have the encouraging words of scripture that remind us that  “the path of the just is as the shining light, that shines more and more to the perfect day”. (Proverbs 4:18 AKJV)

Thank You, Lord,
for Your arms of love
all around us,
shaping us
for heaven
above.
On solid ground
You keep our feet
as we walk life’s street.
As a potter works with clay,
every day, You’re working to
melt and mold us, till Your perfect
will unfolds; refining, till at last we’re
shining, as gold. Help us, Lord, to
understand. Let this piece of clay, I pray,
be a useful vessel in Your hand,
surrendered and transformed
by Your pure and
holy love.
