I Am Not The Potter!




I Am Not The Potter!
I Am In His Hands Just Clay
To Be Molded
According To His Direction
To Be A Vessel
To Be Used
As He
My Molder-Maker
Knowledgeably Says!

I Must Be Placed
In The Fire Of Affliction
To Be Tested
Tempered
And
By God
Tried
To Make Me A Worthy Vessel
To Make My Lord's Heart With Me
Satisfied!

Each Day
I Must Expend Effort
Show Discipline
Be Willing To Engage In Self-Sacrifice
AND
I Must
Through The Aid Of The Holy Spirit
Keep Faith Working
Even As The Spirit 
Teaches Me
Guides Me
AND
Even Chides!

I Must Not Permit Defects
Previously Unknown
In My Character
To Cause Me To Give Up
The Lord
In Shame And Despair
For
The Lord Who Sent Me On My Mission
Can
Any Defects In My Character
Lovingly Repair!

Love
Trust
Belief
Faith
AND
Obedience
Will Take Me
From Quite Wrong To Quite Right!
I Must Therefore Honor
The Master Molder-Maker
AND
In His Tender Ministrations
For My Eternal Good
Take
Patient Delight!

Almighty God
The Master Molder-Maker
Gave Good Gifts Unto Men
So Let Us Bless God
By Using Our Gifts
To Further The Work Of His Kingdom
AND
Not For Making Rifts!

Almighty God

Does Not - Cannot - Will Not

Make A Useless Person

So

There  Must Be Something In Us

That The Lord Can Use

Or

He Would Not Have Made Us

And

Be Willing To Remake Us

IF

We 

His Blessed Salvation

Accept!

Brethren

Let Us Use Our Remolding

To Bring The Lost Souls In!
