Sometimes, I think I wish that life would just be…easy. Easy like I thought it was going to be….ya know? I remember, as a kid, thinking how glad I’d be when I was a grown-up and knew everything and could do exactly what I wanted to do. Well….here I am, past forty and I’m still waiting for that grown-up thing to happen! Of course, now what I know is that if we’re living for God, if we’re pursuing lives of righteousness….if we’re living at all!….we’re going to have troubles. And we won’t always have the answers. And, we most certainly cannot do exactly what we want to do! However difficult life seems to be sometimes, though, I’m thankful that my God loves me enough to fix what needs to be fixing in me. Sometime this week, as I was looking for the off button to this merry-go-round my life has become, it occurred to me that maybe, just maybe, this was really the Potter’s Wheel and I needed to be still and let Him do what needs to be done. This poem is the result of that thought process. Hope it blesses someone!
And all of us are the work of Your hand. ~ Isaiah 64:8
