THE POTTER'S HANDS
Then I went down to the potter's house,
and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.
And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter:
so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.
Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD.
Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand,
so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel
Isn't it wonderful that when the Lord sees flaws in our life,
He does what He needs to do to remold us
into a vessel that is useful for Him.
I'LL TRUST THE POTTER'S HANDS
Here on the potter's wheel, I find myself once more,
My faults and frailties bring me here just like before,
With strong and loving hands the pressure is applied,
Oft times I tremble as He puts me thru the fire
I'll trust the potter's hands, He knows what's best for me,
He has a perfect plan these human eyes can't see,
He's the potter I'm the clay,
He knows just how much I can take,
His hands work deep inside and He makes no mistakes,
Though it seems I'll crumble down and I can hardly stand the pain,
But into His own design, He is molding me I know,
Though my world spins all around, the potter's in control
He's the potter I'm the clay, He knows just how much I can take,
When I face the fire again I'll trust the potter's hands,
When I face the fire again I'll trust the potter's hands

But now, O LORD, thou art our father;
we are the clay, and thou our potter;
and we all are the work of thy hand.
Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay:
for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not?
or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it,
He had no understanding?
We can truly trust the Potter's hands to do what is best for us every day.
May the Lord bless each of you as you trust Him to mold you according to His pattern.
