    For you formed my inmost being. You knit me together in my mother's womb. I will give thanks to you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful. My soul knows that very well. My frame wasn't hidden from you, when I was made in secret, woven together in the depths of the earth....

    For we were saved in hope, but hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for that which he sees? But if we hope for that which we don't see, we wait for it with patience. Romans 8:24 WEB'Oh I don't want to face tomorrow. I have a bad, bad, feeling about this.' On and on we go into a spiral of sel...

    Baby Jesus from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about “Who is Jesus?” I feel that we take it for granted that people actually know that much about Him. In the world we see Jesus as a baby in a manger, then crucified on a cross. The life of Jesus seems to span...

The Pottery Maker

  • Then I went down to the potter's house, and behold, he was making something on the wheels. When the vessel that he made of the clay was marred in the hand of the potter, he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. Then Yahweh's word came to me, saying, 'House of Israel, can't I do with you as this potter?' Jeremiah 18:3 WEB

    A friend of mine owned a potter's wheel, and she was always making something beautiful. She crafted plates and bowls that came out so much nicer than what you could buy in a store. I was always amazed at how beautiful the pieces of pottery were when they came out of her kiln.

    If the piece that she was making didn't turn out right, she would just take it back to the wheel and add a little water. In a few minutes she would spin a work of art out of that pile of clay. When she had it just like she wanted, she would hand paint it, finish it with a glaze, and then heat it in a furnace. After being heated, the finished product was so beautiful.

    Many of us have become wrecked works of art. We start out with so much potential and promise, but all of that can become broken. The dreams that we once had can be shattered into a million pieces. What was once beautiful, can become dark despair. You might begin to wonder if you should get out of bed at all.

    Know today that the Lord is able to put you back together. No matter what your life looks like now, there is still hope, there is still a future for you better than you ever expected. When the furnace comes on, do not panic, it is just part of the process. I have seen God take my broken life, and put it back together. He will do it for you as well.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please mold me into what You think is best, for I know that You are always right. You can see the big picture of time, where I can only see what has passed. Lead me out, and I will follow. Fix it Lord, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

I got a good report from my CT Monday. I've had stage 4 colon cancer for over 5 years now and still living a good life.

God DOES put broken things back together.
