How Are You?


What do you answer when you are asked~

HOW ARE YOU?

Are you~

Just Fine

or

Just Good~

Just because that is easy to say?

HOW ARE YOU~REALLY?

I have a new answer

to

HOW ARE YOU?

TRANSFORMING

Yup

TRANSFORMING

As I am the

Clay

in the Palms of my

FATHER'S hands~

"GOD knew what HE was doing from the very beginning.

HE decided from the outset to shape the lives of those who love HIM

along the same lines as the life of HIS SON" (Romans 8:29)

Does it hurt?

At times yes~

Oh the

Stretching & the Spinning.

The worse is the

Firing in the kiln

when the temperature gets so hot

that you wonder when will it stop.

But then

in

HIS Perfect Timing

I am pulled out

Better than before~

a

newer version of a clay pot~

"Yet you, LORD are our FATHER. We are the clay, you are the POTTER;

we are all the work of YOUR Hand" (Isaiah 64:8)

A perfect pot?

Oh no, as this is just the beginning

because

this pot will get cracked,

yet it is still

HIS Perfect Pot~

"For we are GOD'S masterpiece. HE has created us anew in CHRIST JESUS" (Ephesians 2:10).

and I say

"Thank YOU for making me so wonderfully complex!

YOUR workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it" (Psalm 139:14).

So I ask again~

HOW ARE YOU?

Are you on spinning, being stretched or in the firing stage?

However you are,

you are

HIS Perfect Pot~

Clay in HIS Hands

as

GOD continues to

"cause everything to work together for the good of those

who love GOD and are called according to HIS purpose for them" (Romans 8:28)

HIS Perfect Cracked Pot

Filled to the brim

with

HIS SON~

"But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this

all-surpassing power is from GOD and not from us" (2 Corinthians 4:7).

GOD'S

TRANSFORMING

power

working in

Our Clay Pots

that will never get so cracked that they crumble~

"We are

hard pressed on every side, but not crushed;

perplexed, but not in despair;

persecuted, but not abandoned;

struck down, but not destroyed" (2 Corinthians 4:8-9).

So

Let's enjoy the ride on the

Potter's Wheel

because

HOW ARE YOU~

Perfect

in the

Palms of

YOUR POTTER'S HANDS~(listen below)
