I have gone through a lot of set-backs in my life. I have wondered why certain jobs didn’t call me back or why I hadn’t graduated from college yet or why didn’t get what I so desperately desired exactly when I wanted it? I had trouble trying to figure my own life out. I wanted to “fix” me and my circumstances. I am one of those people that have always been told that God is in control, but I have always been one of those people that would agree and try to work things out on my own. I’m tired of wondering, worrying and “fixing.” I choose to let go of my life.
I choose to allow God complete access to the areas in my life that I don’t think is correct and let Him complete me. Jeremiah 18:1-6 states; ‘this is the word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: “Go down to the potter’s house and there I will give you my message.” So I went down to the potter’s house, and I saw him working at the wheel; 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. Then the Word of the Lord came to me; He said, “Can I not do with you, Israel, as this potter does? Declares the Lord; like clay in the hands of the potter, so are you in my hand, Israel. When reading this scripture I realize that my life is not my own! I am in the hand of the potter. Being filled with the Holy Ghost automatically places me in a position to be seen of God you see, there are times and circumstances that make me think that God has forgotten about me. There are times I wonder if He’s more interested in something else or if He even cares about my tears and what I am going through. When observing this scripture I realize that God will allow us to go through our trials; while we are going through it, He is shaping us just as the potter shapes the clay. He knows exactly what He wants to do in my life. It may be something that I totally disagree with, but He has the last say so in what I do and not me.
There is another scripture of Jesus speaking and allowing His disciples to know that a sparrow is sold for two pence and that we are worth more than many sparrows, but when they fall to the ground He sees it. This allows me to know that whenever I am going through I can rest knowing that God is watching my every move and that He cares about me and what turn my life makes while traveling this world as a sojourner.
I declare that I trust God with all that I have. He knows more than me what it is that I am supposed to do in this life. I trust Him, and declare that I will lean and trust on Him with aaaallll my heart and will NOT lean on my own understanding. I don’t understand everything that God does. There are times that I think God’s actions have caused me to cry and be heart broken. There are things that God allow that cause me to think that I will never ever be the same again! My finite mind can’t and never will understand what it is that He is trying to accomplish in my life, but I choose to trust Him with all that I have. I know that He is the potter and that I am the clay. I choose to allow the potter to have full control.
*I trust you God with all of my heart*
Peace be unto you.
