Awaiting God’s message, Jeremiah ventured to a potter’s house. Unknowingly it transpired in front of him as he watched the humble potter at work. His eyes remained fixed on the toughened hands molding clay into a formed vessel and breaking it down with fire if it did not suit his purpose.
The message of God being a potter molding us is beautiful. Behind veiled hardships, there lies imperfect beauty within us. Imperfections that bring us closer together. God can form us if we ourselves allow it.
Another way of looking at it can be taken from Mark Twain:
“The two most important days of your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” How is God forming you?
