“Look, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand…”        (Jeremiah18:6b)

A lump of clay cannot shape and mold itself; it needs the potter’s hands to shape and mold it. It is the potter who knows what the clay should be made into and how it should be shaped by his hands to make it come out just right. Have you truly given yourself into the potter’s hands? The clay must submit to being worked, watered, kneaded, turned, drawn, and ultimately shaped to be made into something useful. Give yourself into the hands of the Lord, for He is our potter and we are but clay in His hands. Let Him mold and shape you into what He created you to be, for that will be the best thing you can ever become.

May you give yourself totally into the Potter’s hands and let Him shape you.
