From My Heart

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight. – Proverbs 3:5-6 -NIV

Despite God’s best intentions to shape us into truly beautiful people His purposes are brought to nothing again and again because of our resistance to His will. Regardless of His best efforts, human beings so often end up a disaster because either do not seek or comply with His will. Imagine God’s sadness as we, the clay in His gentle, tender, gracious hands, counteract His purposes with our stubbornness. What could have been a gorgeous goblet became a common fingerbowl. The question we have to answer is, “Am I going to be a piece of fine china or a crude mug?”
