“This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: 2 “Go down to the potter’s house, and there I will give you my message.” 3 So I went down to the potter’s house, and I saw him working at the wheel. 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.5 Then the word of the Lord came to me. 6 He said, “Can I not do with you, Israel, as this potter does?” declares the Lord. “Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, Israel.”
I realize I have not blogged in a very long time, but this kinda stirred me up tonight so I figured I would do as I felt led; which leads us to this blog. So any who, this morning I had a song stuck in my head. I had not listened to it recently and thought it was random for it to be the song I woke up singing. (Not literally like I woke up singing this song but you get me..)
“Oh you take broken things And make them beautiful Oh you take broken things And put them back together again.
Hallelujah, to the Potter, who came and made me new, I look just like you, Oh You take broken things and make them beautiful, oh You take broken things and put them back back together again. So come and go with me to the Potter’s house and he’ll make something good.”
–Lyrics from Potter and Friend
This song came out a while ago but it’s by Dante Bowe and it is really good you should go listen to it if you have not. Normally I am not into “corny” Christian songs but this, in my opinion, is different.
Anyway, so I decided to do a devotional tonight. One of the verses in my devotional came from Jeremiah 31. As I am flipping to that verse, I first land on chapter 18 of Jeremiah which was the Parable of the Potter and it stuck out to me instantly. I was like, “Woah… that is kinda freaky.” But immediately I knew it was God. I feel like that was His subtle way of saying, “I see you. I am with you always. Even in those insignificant moments of your life, I am with you.” Like it sounds so general, so almost given or expected to know He is with us. But seriously. Like I thought it was cool how something so random was used as an outlet for God to get my attention. I love that. Like I had the choice to receive that. I did not have to do that devotional tonight. (I usually don’t..) And it makes me wonder, “What else could I have missed out on?”
