The Potter

Isaiah 64:8
Yet oh Lord. You are our Father.  We are the clay you are the potter, 
we are the work of your hands.
I am reading a book called “Identity.”  It is part of the Connect Series.  It is a study book, and asks the question…
How do you imagine the experience of being on the Potters wheel in His hands?

My answer:
The Ultimate Creator sees beauty in me, a clump of earth.
He holds me with a gentle touch.
Holy hands envelope, surround.
Patiently He works, and calls for patience,
as He creates beauty He’s already seen
I spin, slowly giving in.
My mess covers His hands
He molds mess into beauty
I feel Him,. Holding.
I feel safe.  At rest. Settled.
I feel like a priceless creation
I feel cherished.
I feel shaped.
I am a work of my Potters hand,
I am vessel surrounded,
I am filled

    One of my favorite verses. Thank goodness the Potter is patient enough to spend all of this time at the wheel, working out the imperfections! Lovely poem.

    Lovely words woven around a wonderful verse. In the potters hands is where I long to retreat as well.

    That was beautiful, thank you for linking up to steadymom so I could find it for today.
    I also love the picture of the kitchen in your header. Right now I think it ranks high on my wish kitchen list because of its clean lines.
