June 5, Today’s thought — The Potter

Looking east from our deck about 8:00pm, June 4

Good Morning

Genesis 50:20 . . . but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.

In one of George McDonald’s books occurs this fragment of conversation:
“I wonder why God made me,” said Mrs. Fraser bitterly. “I’m sure I don’t know what was the use of making me.”
“Perhaps not much, yet,” said Dorothy, “but then He hasn’t done with you yet. He is making you now, and you are quarreling with the process.”

If men would but believe that they are in process of creation,
and consent to be made–let the Maker handle them as the potter the clay,
yielding themselves in resplendent motion and submissive, hopeful action with the turning of His wheel–
they would ere long find themselves able to welcome every pressure of that hand on them,
even when it was felt in pain:
and sometimes not only to believe but to recognize the Divine end in view,
the bringing of a son unto glory.

Trust God for your day. . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie

  1. I absolutely love your George McDonald quote. It’s so true—and I often quarrel with the process of being made. Thank you for sharing.

    • Yes, how often we think WE know what’s best…just be still and wait.
