Becoming


When asked

"How are you"

do you immediately respond~

"Fine" or "Good"

just because that is easy to say?

But "How are you" REALLY?

I have a new answer

to

"How am I" ~

BECOMING

Yup

BECOMING

As I am

the

Clay

in the palm of

my

FATHER'S HANDS

Who is

Molding me & Shaping me

into the likeness of

HIS SON

For

"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, and especially during this season of life

with the

Stretching

the

Spinning

and the

worse is the

Firing in the kiln

when the temperature gets really hot

wondering when will it stop.

BUT then

in

HIS PERFECT TIMING

I realize that I have BECOME so much more than who I was

as GOD is smoothing out the rough edges.

"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)

Have I arrived? Have you?

Oh no,

as this is just the beginning

because

this pot gets cracked.

but

it is still a pot~

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 answer

remember that

you are

HIS Perfect Pot

Clay in HIS Hands

as

HE 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 will 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)

Therefore,

let's enjoy the ride

on the

POTTER'S Wheel

because

How are you~

Perfect in the

Palms

of

Your

"POTTER'S HANDS" (listen to the song below)
