“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Isaiah 64:8




O Lord, You are our Father;

we are the clay,

and You are our potter;

we are all the work of Your hand.


– Isaiah 64:8 (NRSV)






God, our loving Father, is the Master Potter,

and in His providential ways He forms us

– and we do well if we submit ourselves completely

into His caring hands.


Occasionally, the actions of the Master Potter

may not make sense to us.

We may squirm and even complain.


When God’s actions appear painful to us,

we would do well to go before Him,

with humble faith,

and ask for strength in acceptance of His will.

God forbid that we should ever think we know better!


But what spiritual peace and assurance comes

when we willingly place our life

in the caring hands of our Divine Potter

and allow Him to mould us!


Time and hindsight always confirm this

to the faithful and loving Christian.






Mould me and shape me in Your image, O Lord!
