    Yahweh, how my adversaries have increased! Many are those who rise up against me. Many there are who say of my soul, "There is no help for him in God." Selah. But you, Yahweh, are a shield around me, my glory, and the one who lifts up my head. Psalms 3:1-3 WEB.David wrote these words while on the ru...

    The righteous cry, and Yahweh hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles. Yahweh is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves those who have a crushed spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but Yahweh delivers him out of them all. Psalm 34:17-19 WEB.I grew up as the least ...

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 18:3-6 WEB.

    A friend of mine owned a potter's wheel and loved to craft things. She would take a simple lump of clay and turn it into something beautiful. If the piece she was making didn't turn out right, she would just take it back to the wheel and add a little more water. In a few minutes, she would spin something new out of that mess of clay.

    She would shape the clay into plates and bowls, then hand paint and glaze them. When she was satisfied with them, she would dry them in a furnace. I was always amazed at how beautiful the pottery pieces were when they came out of the kiln.

    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 why you should get out of bed at all.

    Know today that the Lord can put you back together. No matter what your life looks like now, there is still hope. He has a future for you better than you ever expected was possible. Yet, when the furnace comes on, don't panic. It is just part of the process. I have watched God take my broken life and slowly put it back together. He will do the same for you.

    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 already passed. Lead me, and I will follow. Fix me, Lord. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: For those participating in the Creation Photography weekly themes, here is this week's challenge from group leader, Dianna Wyles: 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away." ~ 'The Many Colors of Love' will be our next fun theme and is wide open for some creative interpretation (Heads up'expect to see a month of heart themes But you probably already knew that didn't you? LOL. Our themes are always open for interpretation and we encourage you to post anything else that inspires you as well. My photos this week reflect some of the many colors of love in my life: Family love, Sister love, Mother love, Cousin love, God's Love surrounding us, and Birding love / nature love. May you ALL be surrounded by the many colors of love God has gifted us each day and may you All be the love someone needs today ~ God bless! Here is the link: Creation Photographers
