I see the beautiful image today of my Creator sitting at a table. I am the clay, and He is shaping me, molding me, putting me through the fire.
1 Peter 5:10: “And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.”
Every touch of that clay is lovingly made. To strengthen it and shape it, not only so that it can withstand the fire and the elements, but so that it can become more beautiful.
I am making You strong and beautiful, He says.
