I am a little late with my post this morning. I have continued thinking about The Potter and The Clay theme which I wrote about here. I am trying to be moldable, pliable, conforming to the Lord’s will for my life, although at times I feel like I have trouble discerning what that is, then again, I know whose fault THAT is!! If I am going to be pliable and conform to the Potter’s hands, I must allow myself to be led. This song has really gotten to me lately. Read the artist’s story. Can I get to the point where I know what it feels like to be led? I don’t know. I hope so. It will, however, require me to let go of my will, relinquish control and allow the Lord to totally and completely take over…something I am working on. Seems like I am ALWAYS working on that!!
Does ANYONE else feel this way???
Last week I had to put our dog Spot to sleep. Not an easy thing to do, but had to be done. We’d had Spot for almost 12 years. He was a Rat Terrier, small in size and a really great family pet. Yesterday was the first day we’d talked to Andy since I’d put Spot down and when we told him, he just broke down into tears. Andy had gotten Spot in his Easter basket when he was 10 years old. Last week was a bit sad for me…but it was the right thing to do for Spot.
I would be interested in knowing if you have trouble conforming to the Potter’s hands. How do you manage to relinquish control? I am trying to practicing learning “What if Feels Like to be Led.”
Have a blessed day….
