Weekly Devotions 



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.

                                                                                                          Deuteronomy 5:4-5


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.
