“Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, making something on the wheel. But the vessel that he was making of clay was spoiled in the hand of the potter; so he remade it into another vessel, as it pleased the potter to make.” – Jeremiah 18:3,4 NASB
I have been feeling particularly broken, beyond just grief, experiencing the frailties of my body, the limitations of my mind, the shortcomings of my character, and the failings of my heart.
I am deeply marred.
Faced with the realities of my blemished humanity, I am beginning to recognize I have two choices: I can either feel discouraged and dejected, deserving to be tossed aside and discarded (my certain fate without the grace of God), or I can embrace the life-giving touch of the Great Potter to mold and reshape this contaminated piece of mud into something beautiful.
Because of your sacrifice, dear Lord, please re-form my flawed life that it may be usable and valuable to you.
