Dear Ones,
Hope you are having a great day. I woke up to a beautiful full moon shining in my window! This morning I made cherry cheesecake  and porkchops with apples. Also went to Aldi’s and downstairs for Donut day. Emoji This afternoon is Bible Study here at the apartments. There are as many men, and often more men than the women that come! 
Devotions from Judy’s heart
No one is too broken to be beyond God’s grace to reshape and make new. He can take us, just like the potter, and form us into a new pot for the Lord’s use. We should never give up on others or ourselves but believe that God can take are marred lives and brokenness of our past and shape us into something very beautiful. But we have to repent of the things that keep us from God and be willing to  yield to Him, letting His hand remove those things. God told the prophet Jeremiah to go to the potter’s house and he saw how the clay pot that the potter worked on was spoiled but that he reworked it into another vessel. God said in Jeremiah18:5 (ESV), “O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter has done?”
We have a choice if we will be willing to lay aside our stubbornness, our pride and ego, and be willing to be reshaped on the Potter’s wheel. If we yield to His hand, we become like spiritual clay that the Lord will shape perfectly for the very purposes He has for our lives.
We must remember our role as we are not the potter! We are simply ordinary clay without rights to choose what shape we are designed for. It is whatever pleases the potter and we stay on the wheel as long as He chooses. I’m sure we all have had times when the wheel seems to be going fast, and we want to get off and be in control again. But we need to trust the Potter that He knows what He is doing and it is in His timing, that He will take us off the wheel.
Let us see this whole process as a time of opportunity to grow and to be prepared for how He wants our clay pot to be of service for Him.
Challenge for today: Don’t resist the Potter’s hand but let Him shape you into the beautiful pot He has designed.
Blessings on your day and prayers and love, Judy
