The Potter’s Hand

Hello darling!

I felt led to share this powerful video I came across today with a beautiful brief sermon included.

Let us make it our duty to be at a place where we are moldable, pliable and fit for the master’s use…We cannot afford for issues of this life to hinder us, make us feel bitter or condemned. That is just a plan of the enemy because He knows in our wholeness and surrendering to Christ he has no power, moreover every strong hold is broken and foundations of hell is shaken! Be encouraged through the truth of God’s Word my friend that time in His beautiful presence is the place to be daily so you can be that vessel He pours into to do a new and beautiful work just where He has planted you. He may not do the work you thought in the place and time you imagined but you know what, your mind-set and resolution to serve the Lord no matter what will not be shaken! Because we know He will bring to pass the desires He has laid on your heart in its suitable season and time.

I’ve posted the lyrics and worship video that sums up this marvelous message as it reminds us of a musical prayer to be formed by Jesus andย  remain in the potter’s hands:

THE POTTER’S HAND

Beautiful Lord,
Wonderful Savior,
I know for sure
All of my days are
Held in Your hand,
Crafted into Your perfect plan.

You gently call me
Into Your presence,
Guiding me by
Your Holy Spirit.

Teach me dear Lord,
To live all of my life
Through Your eyes.

I’m captured by
Your holy calling,
Set me apart,
I know You’re drawing
Me to Yourself,
Lead me, Lord, I pray.

Take me, mold me,
Use me, fill me.
I give my life
To the Potter’s Hand.

Call me, guide me,
Lead me, walk beside me,
I give my life
To the Potter’s Hand.

You gently call me
Into Your presence,
Guiding me by
Your Holy Spirit.

Teach me dear Lord,
To live all of my life
Through Your eyes.

I’m captured by
Your holy calling.
Set me apart,
I know You’re
Drawing me to Yourself.
Lead me, Lord, I pray!

Take me, mold me,
Use me, fill me.
I give my life
To the Potter’s Hand.

Call me, guide me,
Lead me, walk beside me,
I give my life
To the Potter’s Hand.

Stay there, live there, thrive there…
Lovingly & prayerfully,

My Amazing God!-1st Year Retreat Reflection

I am in awe of you God! This weekend I learned so much. One lesson that stood out to me is that it is o.k. to just be yourself. We all have our own distinct styles, perspectives, embedded theologies and … Continue reading

I Love Your Presence

There’s no other place I’d rather be than in His presence! the Lord’s presence, my husband’s presence…so divine! What a joy and blessing it is to experience such love, such beautiful, wholesome love. Jesus only wants us to spend intimate time with Him, to Know Him and His Word. There’s no question as to why we go through the things we do, the tests, the trials, the relationships we experience come to make us stronger! ย my have I been tested from a child growing up, I’ve learned the battles we face sometimes in our minds-are thoughts that mean to tear us down. However, through the reassurance of God’s Holy Word and His promises we can rise above and become conquerors. The Lord HAS given us the VICTORY! You and I are a walking testimony of God’s Grace and the fact that we are breathing today is evidence of his promise to keep us, take care of us (1Peter 5:7) so there is no need to worry but trust He will supply our every need (Philippians 4:19) Yesterday, all over the country the media and consumer driven outlets made the most out of a day that celebrates love. My husband and I exchanged one of our most authentic and intimate moments over a home cooked meal. In that time we exchanged verbally love notes written in our Valentine’s cards, gifts and what I imagined to be one of the best ‘candle-lit dinners’ we could have shared on that day. After all was said and done, as my husband was finishing up his meal he asked me, “Honey, where did you learn to cook like this?” my response? Over time, I’m learning…(I didn’t do much cooking as a child but I suppose it’s the Island and God in me that is making me better for my family!) my heart glows when my husband would rather choose a home-cooked meal over eating out simply because to him it’s better.

  • Seasonings of all kinds meant to last for a while-$30 something

There is such peace in knowing and doing what is best during the season God has placed us! Now that I look back, it is the one-on-one presence that makes our time together so fulfilling, this is just a piece of what we enjoy when we are in the Lord’s presence….I Love, I Love, I love Your Presence, I love, I love…I love You Jesus!
