I Am The Clay...

I realize that as a disciple of Jesus, I am on a journey. The journey I am on is one that most definitely goes through seasons. I must say that I am a person who loves to learn new things and grow in the process. I love when God has new lessons to teach me. I don't necessarily like the stretching He has to do sometimes. I guess clay needs to be stretched though. I love the image of being clay in the hands of God. This image portrays in my mind the vision of Him making me better. He is taking off all of my rough edges. He is chiseling away at all of the unneeded worldly and fleshly desires that are inside me. He is preparing me for something new and something I have not been equipped to do or partake in before. I LOVE to think about the fact that the King of Kings and Lord of Lords is refining me so that His image can be the one seen by the world and not mine. I want to be pliable in His hands. I desire to be surrendered to being the clay and allowing Him to be the Master. He knows exactly what He is doing. He has the eternal picture of who and what I am supposed to be and do for Him so that His glory and renown are known. Hallelujah for that. The bottom line is, I am immeasurably blessed and thankful to be His.
