It was a beautiful day for a drive. Sun was shining, very little traffic on the road ,and as I passed mile and after mile, my spirit began to lift. I drove until I felt enough peace to turn around and head back home. I drove a long, long, time. Some days are like that.
But peace came, the filling of my spirit came, and joy returned to my heart. As I drove home, I began thinking about a China cup. Sometimes I feel like a small delicate China cup that has fallen to the floor and broken into many pieces.
I envision Christ himself picking up the pieces..... carefully putting them back together because I am precious to Him. One by one, repairing the damage that was done. Putting back together, a broken vessel.
That is when the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart....... " I am not just the Potter, but also the maker of the clay.
Isaiah 64:8 "But now, O LORD, You are our Father, We are the clay, and You our potter; And all of us are the work of Your hand."
Christ put me together. Every cell, every hair, ever bone, everything! HE made piece by piece. I was not created by some cosmic accident. God perfected me. Psalms 139:14 "I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well."
I am having a much better today, ..Thank you, Father!
It is amazing what time spent with Him will do for your soul.
