5 Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying: 6 “O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter?” says the LORD. “Look, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel!
Jeremiah 18:5-6 (NIV)

A child is born into this world innocent of wrongdoing but born a sinner. She grows to the age of accountability, whatever age that may be for her and makes a decision to accept Jesus as her savior. Immediate trials begin in her life. She enters her teenage years wanting what the world wants, seeking what the world has to offer, and her life changes. She becomes pregnant, gets married, wants the perfect family but realizes there is no perfect family. She divorces her husband and takes on the full responsibility of raising her child, emotionally, physically and financially. A few years later, she remarries, still living the non-Christian life she has lived since she became a teenager. That marriage also ends in a divorce. But that one is what changed her life. She is now rejoicing in the Lord that He allowed her to experience this life so she may use it to influence others who may be making some of the same choices. She thanks God for continuously molding her into the person He would have her to be. Just like the clay in the potter’s hand, so is she in God’s hands always. Now that is, God’s art, the transforming of a mixed up, solid lump of emotion, confusion and fear into a prayerful, trusting, and joyful God fearing woman.

I like the comparison here and I have a feeling you are speaking from experience or example. Nice work

Great points! I would have enjoyed seeing what made the woman change, during her second marraige, but good article.
