What do you think about when you think of a potter?

Someone moulding clay into something useful  and beautiful?

I’m sure we’ve all heard God called a potter. As just as a potter moulds his clay into something beautiful, so God can ‘mould’ or help make us into someone beautiful. i.e. He can help us become more like Him – more caring, more loving, more understanding as well as someone reliable who others can always go to or approach whenever they are in need.

I am happy to put my life in the hands of The Potter, are you?

In the hands of the potter by Casting Crowns

I still remember when I heard You call me by name
I’d follow You anywhere, knew I could trust You in anything
But now sorrow beats down on me, waiting for You to come through
I’m all alone with my questions, I’m dry and cracked open
And I thirst for You

And as I fall apart
Come flood this desert heart
Fall like the rain, Living Water
And I know Your way is best
Lord, help me find my rest
And I’ll be the clay
In the Hands of the Potter

My world is spinning, my life seems so out of control
Nailed scarred hands tell the story of love that will never let go of me
Through the sunshine or rain, I know where my hope is found
What You started in me, I know You will complete from the inside out

And as I fall apart
Come flood this desert heart
Fall like the rain, Living Water
And I know Your way is best
Lord, help me find my rest
And I’ll be the clay
In the Hands of the Potter

My world is breaking me, Your love is shaping me
And now the enemy is afraid of what You’re making me
When my world is breaking me, Your love is shaping me
And now the enemy is afraid of what You’re making me
My world is breaking me, Your love is shaping me
And now the enemy is afraid of what You’re making me

And as I fall apart
Come flood this desert heart
Fall like the rain, Living Water
And I know Your way is best
Lord, help me find my rest
And I’ll be the clay
In the Hands of the Potter

And I’ll be the clay
In the Hands of the Potter
