In the Master's hand

Shall the clay say to him who forms it,
'What are you making?'



But now, O Lord,
You are our Father.

We are the clay,
and You our potter.

And we are all the work of Your hand.

Isaiah 45:9, 64:8

This is such an illuminating way of looking at ourselves and others. We are so quick to find fault with our human bodies, and wills, but God made us this with with a purpose in mind.

Every time I see a potter, I can't help but take pictures! These are beautiful, Bethany. I especially like the framing and composition of the last one! Very nice!!

Amen. And may we never be dried out dirt, but flexible and willing clay! Excellent reminder and pictures, as always Bethany! :D
