18 The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord:
2 Arise and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause you to hear My words.
3 Then I went down to the potter’s house, and behold, he was working at the wheel.
4 And the vessel that he was making from clay was spoiled in the hand of the potter; so he made it over, reworking it into another vessel as it seemed good to the potter to make it.
5 Then the word of the Lord came to me:
6 O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter does? says the Lord. Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel.
We serve such an awesome God! Everyday I am amazed at His never ending love and patience. Try as I might I know that I will fall short of perfection, and yet I serve a God that never tires of reworking me into something beautiful. How blessed I am that He takes joy and pride in that reworking. As long as we are in this world our life will be marred and spotted just like the vessel in the verse. Even so, we can rest assured that our Potter will lovingly form us again every time we crumble. Some mistakes can seem like the end of the world, but have faith, our endings are just a chance for God to create a new beginning!!
