A Piece of Clay – Forming While it Counts

I took a piece of plastic clay
And idly fashioned it one day,
And as my fingers pressed it still,
It moved and yielded at my will.

I came again when days were past;
The bit of clay was hard at last,
The form I gave it still it bore,
But I could change that form no more.

I took a piece of living clay,
And gently formed it day by day,
And molded with my power and art
A young child’s soft and yielding heart.

I came again when days were gone;
It was a man I looked upon;
That early impress still he wore,
And I could change it never more.

The Daily Grind

The Philistines took him, and put out his eyes…and bound him with fetters of brass; and he did grind in the prison house. (Jud. 16:21) Samson was banished to the daily “grind” of prison. He literally walked in circles. But, with each turn of the grinder wheel, his strength returned. Your trials have you walking in circles. Progress can be slow, but under the Master’s artful eye, each turn of the wheel reveals yet another facet of His Love. And, you never want that to come to a “grinding” halt!

Put Postponed Promises in the Potter's Hands

The Psalmist declared, “I will praise you; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Only the God of the universe could form man from clay and breath the breathe of life into him. What lifeless lumps of clay you thought were dilapidated dreams and postponed promises, will you allow God to breath new life into? Leave them on the wheel and let the POTTER perform His artistry. He said, “I will work…who will let me work?
