Another reading from the Bedtime Blessings book that really spoke to me...thought I'd share.
We know the sovereign Potter is working with us as He pleases. He is the Potter, we are the clay. He is the one who gives the commands; we are the ones who obey. He never has to explain Himself; He never has to ask permission. He is shaping us over into the image of His Son, regardless of the pain and heartache that may require. Those lessons are learned a little easier when we remember that we are not in charge, He is.
You are our Father
We are the clay, and You our potter;
and all of us are the work of Your hand.
