I want to get off the potter's wheel

Grumbled the lump of clay

I'm tired of the pounding and spinning around

Day after day after day

The process is tiring, the purpose unknown

The end, I cannot foresee

Perhaps just a lowly lump of clay

Is all I'm intended to be!

 


If you abandon this work of mine

The Potter in wisdom, replied

No longer you'll know the touch of my hand

To soften to shape and to guide

Discarded and brittle and hard you'll become

Do you really want it this way?

You'll be of no purpose or use to me

He cautioned the lump of clay

 


But what of the furnace, the clay loudly cried

The burning, the heat, the unknown

How will I fare when you close the door

And I'm left, afraid and alone?

I'll hold you and mould you, because you are mine

And the fire I will oversee

Until perfect, a vessel of strength you become

Both precious and useful, to me

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
