Newness...Thank Heaven For That Which Is New


Jeremiah 18: Who else but the Potter reforms something that has spoilt in his hands by remoulding it from exactly the same substance. Jeremiah was given a demonstration that showed even fallen man could be redeemed, reformed and made new. That's Good News! (words & painting by Chis Higham)

How thankful am I to "The Potter" that makes all things new!

How thankful am I for 2009.

How thankful am I for the new year!!!

Happy New Year Everyone!

Blessings of peace and all that is good!

Then I went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. Jeremiah 18:3-4

It is always my desire to stay soft and moldable in his hands. He will form us. Sometimes with His gentle hands, sometimes with the instrument against marble. The instrument He chooses to use depends on us. It's so wonderful He has given us free will!!!!

HI Debra!!!!!
I love that story and the picture you painted of the potter, Jesus certainly can take an old pile of clay and mold us into his likeness if we allow him to. We serve a great God one who is worthy to be Praised every day!!!Wishing you the very best for 2010!!! How was your trip by the way????
hugs,
