I Am But Clay In the Master Potters Hands...

I am but clay in the master potters hands...He makes me into what He wants me to be, what serves Him best.

Isaiah 29:16 - Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?

Isaiah 45:9 - Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?

Isaiah 64:8 - But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.

The potter's house. When I feel I have no one else to turn to I know that all I have to do is knock on his door and he answer's. When I use to sing solo in church one of my favorite song's was by Quinton Mill's called, I have been to the potter's house. I go there Every morning and Every night and any time that I need to during the day.<br />

If your life has no meaning, the storm's have taken their toll on you.<br />
With your vessel in many piece's, you dont know just what to do.<br />
Please come with me to the potter's house, and place your vessel into his hand's.<br />
You'll be amazed at his ability, when he mold's you again.<br />

It took me a little while to be honest, but I learned to put my vessel into his hand's. I have up's and I have down's. But I have learned to trust him, All our talk's end in Thy Will Be Done. Somtime's I get afraid in not knowing what his will is for me, But i'm placing my trust in him none the less.<br />
God Bless.

Possibly we question Gods will because we are human and either misinformed or just disobedient. :-S (Have you ever read the poem about the lump of clay that was made into the beautiful tea pot - the one that was put through the kiln a few times?) We might not like what happens in our lives - but everything happens for a purpose. (Read Jeremiah 29:11)<br />
<br />
I personally try to figure out what our Heavenly Fathers will is for me. Maybe I should learn to let go a little and just walk the path he laid before me..... maybe... <br />

Lots of love to you, Eyeno :-)
