'To me, God lives within me, God lives in my heart. The image of the potter is what summarises my image of God. We are in daily formation. Every single day, God moulds and fashions me.' ~Nina Isabelle Chillion
Pottery has been around for thousands of years. Each potter has their own unique style and finished product. But they all start with the same lump of clay. It may not look much but it has huge potential. The potter patiently works with it, allowing it take shape. Even if it falls out of shape, the potter will patiently start again. It is no surprise that God has been compared to a potter. Like a potter God works with us gently. There is recognition of our uniqueness and the something special which we all have. Like clay that sometimes fall out of shape, we also make mistakes but that is never a reason for God to push us to one side. We are in daily formation, constantly trying to do our best, growing and maturing, while learning new things about ourselves and others. Are you open to this ongoing formation today?
