Taking Shape

“But now, O LORD, You are our Father, We are the clay, and You our potter; And all of us are the work of Your hand.” – Isaiah 64:8

Remember this:

God’s hands don’t touch clay to IMPOSE a shape,

        but to FIND its shape.

You are in the hands of the great, I AM. His goodness cannot be exaggerated. His compassion for you is unlimited; his affection unconditional. His hands patiently draw out the best that is within you. He is making it possible for you to become who you were always meant to be.

Be honored and secure. Be excited and happy. Be hopeful and confident. Be joyful and thankful. You are blessed.

“For because of our faith, he has brought us into this place of highest privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to actually becoming all that God has had in mind for us to be.”  — Romans 5:2 (Living Bible, TLB)
