Shaped For Eternity (Scripture Reflections)

Jeremiah 18:4
But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him.

Isaiah 45:9
Does the clay say to the potter, 'What are you making?'



Remolded by God

As softened clay within Your hands,

This life of mine is Yours to command.

I place myself upon Your wheel

No matter what my heart may feel.

Master Potter, You have a plan

And I submit “just as I am”.

With tender hands You smooth and mold

As seasons of my life unfold.

At times You twist and pull this clay

When I begin to drift away.

In the middle of Your wheel

Is the place you ordain for me,

A clay shaped for eternity.
