6 He said, “Can I not do with you, Israel, as this potter does?” declares the LORD. “Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, Israel.It has been a little over a year since I picked up knitting needles and began this journey of knitting with God. As I was reading Jeremiah and re-reading the story of the piece misshapen in the Potter’ hand I thought back on my year of projects. Jeremiah 18:6 (NIV)
I, an acknowledged, novice somehow neglected to check my gauge in the early days, ok it is still a problem, and as a result there was more than one odd-shaped, twisted, gaped piece that should have never seen the light of day. In the beginning the idea of taking it apart, after hours and days of diligent work was unimaginable. What a difference mere months made.
I might bind off to the last stitch, but if it is wrong, it is wrong it is wrong and out comes the ball wonder. More than once in my life I have been that imperfect work in the Potter’s hands, how thankful I am that He takes the time to make me over and over, and over again.
Making His praise glorious!
