I’m A Work In Progress ~

I’m a work in progress,
you likely are one too . . .
each day Jesus is working
in us something new.

His grace is transforming us,
to be sin fighting saints
He’s shaping us to live a life
with principles and restraints.

He is molding our minds,
to be clean and spotless
He shaping our hearts
to live pure and flawless.

He knows all the lumps,
that need to be reformed
He’s modeling our lives
till in Him we’re transformed.

We have unlimited potential,
He’ll never be finished with us
but, you and I must believe
His remolding is always just.

I’m a work in progress,
you likely too are one . . .
each day God is shaping us
into the image of His Son!

which hath begun a good work in you will
perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”

On the Potter’s Wheel ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~transform- IBible Verses

 If we’re to be transformed,
on the Potter’s wheel
then as the clay . . .
we must be still.

The process is not fast,
a lot of time it will take
so the Potter’s image
into us He can make.

The clay needs to be soft,
it must be willingly pliable
so from its worthless state
He can make it justifiable.

Once on the Potter’s wheel,
the clay will wobble to and fro
but, He controls the speed
til His mercy begins to flow.

The Potter molds His vessel,
and foresees the finished work
if there’s any cracks or flaws . . .
the clay He is able to rework.

If we’re willing to be formed,
into something beautiful . . .
on the Potter’s wheel
we must remain flexible!

~~~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 18:3-4

“Then I went down to the
potter’s house, and, behold,

he wrought a work on the wheels.
And the vessel that he made of clay
was marred
in the hand of the potter:
so he made it again another vessel,

as seemed good to the potter to make it.”

To God Be The Glory ~

Lord, I want to bring You glory,
I want to do right by You . . .
I want the light of salvation
in my life to shine through.

I want to be the salt,
the flavor of Your grace
I want my soul to reflect
the wonder of Your face.

I want to move mountains,
to part the ocean wave
I want to be Your soldier
for You, Your Gospel slave.

I want to taste Your manna,
sip the nectar off Your vine
I want to be Your branch
I want our lives to intertwine.

I want to be Your vessel,
the clay upon Your wheel
I want to see Your image,
to know Your godly will.

Lord, I want to bring You glory,
I want to sing to You my praise . . .
I want the world to know
that for You my heart’s ablaze!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 60:1-2

“Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the
glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For,
behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
and gross darkness the people: but the
Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory
shall be seen upon thee.”

If God is the Potter ~

You Are God Masterpiece used with permission IBible Verses

If God is the potter,
shouldn’t we be more pliable
so He could mold us to Him
to be more flexible?

If God is the potter,
shouldn’t we rest in His hands
so He could mold into us
His purpose and plans?

If God is the potter,
shouldn’t we be more adaptable
so He could mold us to be
for Him more workable?

If God is the potter,
shouldn’t we trust Him in all things
so He could mold into us hope
no matter what this life brings.

If God is the potter,
shouldn’t we me more bendable
so He can mold us to see
on Him we need to be dependable?

If God is the potter,
shouldn’t we be the obedient clay
so He can mold into us all
His truths and His way?

Hand Molded ~

Hand molded,
each little curve
made with love
so God we can serve.

Formed out of clay,
a vessel to be used
in our hearts . . .
God’s Spirit was fused.

God is the Potter,
Christ is the mold
and His ways . . .
we’re to keep and hold.

Sometimes we crack,
under the pressure
but God will restore
for we’re His treasure.

Hand molded,
grace’s transformation
renewed in His love
by His sanctification!

“But now, O Lord, thou art our father;
we are the clay, and thou our potter;
and we all are the work of thy hand.”

God Still Moves . . .

He still moves mountains,
He will remove yours too
He can do the impossible
because . . .  He loves you.

He parts the sea,
He turns water into wine
He can restore your life
by making you, His vine.

He heals the sick,
He helps blind men to see
He can open up your eyes
just like He did . . . for me.

He makes the lame walk,
He can turn your life around
He can show you the way
guide you, to solid ground.

Yes, God can change you,
right where you are
He can make you complete
heal every ugly scar.

He still does miracles,
He will perform one today
for He is the Potter . . .
and you are His clay!
