Clay in the Hands of the Potter – Today’s
Dear Heavenly Father,
We’ve experienced trials and we’ve been through storms. We’ve felt both disappointment and the pain of loss. We’ve been through dark times of discouragement, and in each one of those times, Your light has shone brightly.
Sometimes difficult times that bring the most pain are the very thing You’re using for good. We don’t need to understand, we just need to know that You are fully in control and that You want the very best for us. And so, Lord, we thank You for Your strength. We thank You for Your patience as we’re learning to lean on you.
May our greatest trials be the soil into which our blessings are planted. Teach us to trust in Your wisdom. Help us find peace in the eye of the storm.
Before You work through us, You must work within us, and so we submit ourselves to You. As clay in the hands of a Potter may we be molded and made, fashioned and formed, created and cast, according to Your almighty wisdom and power.
In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
