The Lord spoke to you face to face out of the fire on the mountain. At that time I stood between the Lord and you to declare to you the word of the Lord, because you were afraid of the fire and did not go up the mountain.
The Lord gave me a vision of myself as a pot. I was waiting in the dark on a shelf. I was tarnished, stained and dirty. Then a hand reached out for me, picked me up and took me to a kiln blazing with white hot fire. He then picked me up and put me on a board and slid me in the fire. After a little while, the hand reached in and took me out of the fire and set me on a board and I was left to cool. That was the end of the vision.
I have pondered on this and have kept remembering it. Now I see it as God’s hand on my life removing all that has gotten dirty and unclean. I see He is making me into a bright and shiny pot; one He intended to glisten and shine. The vision is not complete yet. I did not get to see myself in the vision as the shiny, glistening pot so I am not finished yet. I am still in the process of becoming what the Master Potter wants me to be. I am waiting for the Master to finish me.
Lord may my life become more and more untarnished as I allow you to make me into who you fully want me to be.
