Hearts of Clay

THE WORD which came to Jeremiah from the Lord:
Arise and go down to the potter's house, and there I will cause you to hear My words. Then I went down to the potter's house, and behold, he was working at the wheel. But the vessel he was making did not turn out as he had hoped, so he crushed it into a lump of clay again and started over.

Then the word of the Lord came to me:
O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter does? says the Lord.
Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel. Jeremiah 18:1-6

Happy Valentine's Day to the hands of a creative and recreative God!

to be on the potter's wheel.

crushing to a lump, starting over. He does this over & over with us, doesn't he? so hard to put ourselves there & let him. but so good, isn't it?

it is so, so good.

when we have this hidden treasure in jars of clay...there is no place or no one else's hands i'd want my heart ever more to be

earthen vessels in God's ever drossing furnace

so good indeed

as His Bride we are all facets of the same lump each one being formed and reformed and set free

so good to find you both here on the potter's wheel with me

love to you...
