"Life, like this pot, comes to be in places of tension." —a modern-day potter
Who here hasn't had to deal with tension in their life? Who hasn't been formed by it just as a potter forms a beautiful pot? The potter forms his pot with the tension of his hands, both from the inside of the pot and from the outside.
Sadness, death, misfortune, these things are tools in the Master Potter's hands to make us a useful vessel for Him, for His service, for His glory, and for our good.
You may think, "I didn't choose this life." These things that form our very being, they are not chosen by us, but for us. Preordained, according to His plan, to create in us what only they can create.
The voice of the Potter is speaking to us today. We hear Him through His Word. We hear Him when we are silent, and when we are still.
"Both my hands shaped this pot. And, the place where it actually forms is a place of tension between the pressure applied from the outside and the pressure of the hand on the inside. That's the way my life has been. Sadness and death and misfortune and the love of friends and all the things that happened to me that I didn't even choose. All of that influenced my life. But, there are things I believe in about myself, my faith in God and the love of some friends that worked on the inside of me. My life, like this pot, is the result of what happened on the outside and what was going on inside of me. Life, like this pot, comes to be in places of tension." —a modern-day potter
