The Potter's Wheel and me

Yesterday's reading was about the potter molding clay.  If wasn't cooperating like the potter wanted, it was just taken off the wheel, mushed back together and placed back on the wheel again for a redo.

.......a redo.  My knight calls it a mulligan.  But really, have you ever wanted to start over?  Know what you know now, in a relationship, marriage, with a child or parent, in your job? Could you have done it better with more knowledge and wisdom?  ABSOLUTELY!  Absolutely we could have done a better job knowing more of the facts and having more wisdom, but we don't have that opportunity. 

However, we so have something:  tomorrow.  As the Lord says in Jeremiah 18:5-6, "Can I not do to you, house of Israel, as this potter has done?  Indeed, like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, house of Israel."

It is only our free-will that is keeping us from being pliable in God's hands, but with prayer and trust in Him it can be done.  We can be molded into the person God plans us to be.

Are you ready to be God's modeling clay?  Allowing Him to make you into the best you can be?

Pray and let go, say "Yes" and live in His righteousness as His.  Today.  I'm praying for you and for me!
