God's got you on His potter's wheel. Jeremiah chapter 18.


I am spinning- around and around in circles.
Faster and faster.
Being molded into what He wants me to be.
Taking out sticks and rocks,
Bringing this into my life and taking this out.
Jabbing a thumb there to teach me a lesson.
Drawing deep designs on the surface,
To match the designs on the inside.
Cutting this away and curving this part here.
I am what He has made me.
A vase with flowers along the rim.
But if you look really close,
I have a chip here and a crack there.
And suddenly- I’m spinning again.


The author's comments:
I was at church in youth service and my youth pastor was speaking from the Bible. He read Jeremiah chapter 18. The story is called The Potter's Wheel, and it inspired me.
