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!

God Is ~

God is . . .

Our Shadow in the heat,
our Calm in the wave
our Refuge in the storm
the only One who can save.

Our Peace surpassing,
our Stillness unreal
our Hope never-ending
the One to whom we kneel.

Our Buckler of Trust,
our Horn of Salvation
our Rock of Strength
the Judge of every nation.

Our Cloud in the Night
our Light unto the Way
our very Present Help
the Potter of the clay.

Our Shield of Faith,
our High Lofty Tower
our Fortress of Peace
the Almighty full of Power!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 25:4

“For thou hast been
a strength to the poor,
a strength to the needy
in his distress,
a refuge from the storm,
a shadow from the heat,
when the blast of the
terrible ones is as
a storm against the wall.”

The Hands that Mold You ~

The Hands That Mold You ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~Mold ~ IBible Verses

The hands longing to mold you,
will never let you fall . . .
they will always lift you up
when on them you call.

They will uphold you,
when you’re feeling weak
in love they’ll enfold you
when their comfort you seek.

The hands wanting to mold you,
are steady and oh, so strong
if you trust in their power
nothing can or will go wrong.

They will wrap around you,
in them courage you will find
they’ll defend and protect you
bring to you peace of mind.

The hands desiring to mold you,
will never let you fall . . .
for they belong to our Father
who wants to save one and all!

Isaiah 64:8

“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.”

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.”

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!

we are the clay, and thou our potter;

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!
