~Pottery

when we acknowledge our Father,
the Creator of the Universe
and cry out Oh Lord,
we become as clay
in His hands
moldable and shapeable.

We humble ourselves,
realizing His skills as The Potter
are  shaping us into beautiful vessels
to be used by Him.


May your weekend thoughts
 be turned towards Our Creator & Potter.
Giving Him praise!

The moulding and shaping,is at times painful,but I would not want to be anywhere,but in God's hands.

He is the Potter, we are the clay...It is nice to know He forms and makes us into the vessel He desires us to be.

I love how you did the verse on this picture. Perfect!!! I am so glad I have a Creator that can mold me over and over again to be what he is making me to be. I sure have tried to mess up His work many a times.

So true. This reminds me of the song Have Thine Own Way Lord. Thou art the potter, I am the clay has always struck an emotional chord with me. Thank you for this beautiful post.
