The Potter’s Wheel [Weekly Inspiration]

There have been times when I have heard a song in the car or a fiery message that leaves me pumped to conquer the world. In the midst of my high, I make these affirmations and say to the Lord, “Do whatever it takes to get me were I need to be!” The Lord hears and answers. So, He places me on the potter’s wheel. I begin to turn, then stretched, pulled, maybe even patted & squeezed a little bit.  I start off being calm and ready to help, but eventually I become fearful and annoyed.

When things get a little bumpy, don’t jump off the wheel, stay there. God is trying to perfect you. The only way to do that is to weed out all that is not pure through various trials and challenges that expose where you are weak, so you can deal with it and move on. Going through gives you the experience and the knowledge to help and respond to someone who may be experience the same test or situation.

Remember, you asked God to help you. He created you, so I think we can trust that He knows how to get us to where we need to be.
