In His Hands

I knew this journey of Lent would be a slowing down for me as it should be. How can I reflect and reconnect and refocus at high speed? Those are “soul-speed” kinds of things.

So I am learning to take my time……take it in………be present.

The reading for Day 7 from Bread and Wine is called the The Relinquished Life. My favorite line is “God will make you fit for all He requires of you.” I recalled the verse that struck me last week from Jeremiah.

But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him.     Jeremiah 18:4

If I’m going to be made fit for all He requires or shaped as seems best to Him……then I need to let Him do it. The clay is there for the potter to shape. The clay is marred but the clay is soft.

I must remain pliable in His hands.

And the shaping of pots is probably done best at soul-speed.

  1. My word from God through this season seems to be “remaking”. Your words here resonate with that. The Potter is remaking me into what is best . Great word, Marie. I look forward to more and I’ll be praying for us to do that “soul-speed” kind of thinking and receive all God has for us.
