the sculptor and the clay



Before going to bed, and watch a few episodes of, How I Met Your Mother,  I felt the Lord leading me to open my devotional book. Of course, I was intrigued and decided to have a quiet time with the Lord, and boy did I need to hear his words of wisdom.

I keep, Jesus Calling by Sarah Yong, next to my bed for a daily lift-up message to either start or end my day. I do admit quiet times are hard for me to daily, but the amount of hope + joy with just the Lord and I are so needed.

I encourage you to think about playing with Play-Doh as a kid. How you could mold it into different forms. Well, the Bible gives us the truth, that we are just like Play-Doh, and that the Lord is our sculptor.

Isaiah 64:8 reads,

 “Yet you, Lord, are our Father.
    We are the clay, you are the potter;
    we are all the work of your hand.” 

I do not know about you, but I have days where the Lord’s plan for my life is crystal clear. I wake up and am 100% rooted in the hope that God’s will for my life is at work. Then I have other days where I feel like I have to be in control of every situation, and that the Lord’s plan for my life is nothing but unclear.

Yet, Isaiah 64:8, is a great reminder that the Lord is always at work in our lives. Whether we see it or not, God loves his people, and his plan is much bigger than we can ever imagine.

If you’re like me and have days where you are confused on the Lord’s plan for your life, I encourage you to spend some quiet time with him. I hope you can be reminded that the Lord is the sculptor and we are his clay. Even when WE try to mold our life together, HE is the only true artist in control. He wants the best for us because he loves each and every one of us.

    You’re so inspiring Raelyn….. I find my utmost joy and comfort in God’s word daily! but in days when I can’t because of school schedules, I just try to just close my eyes anywhere and talk directly to HIM. God is Awesome!
