This is a piece we have been labouring over for weeks, and this morning our hearts broke when we found it lying crumpled on the shelf, irreparably broken. But then we realized in that moment of sorrow that this piece of clay does not end here. It is not done yet. It will be immersed in water, and when it has rested sufficiently it will be brought out again, kneaded together and transformed into another object of beauty. Different, but still beautiful in the eyes of its maker. Have you, like us, ever felt broken? Even irreparably broken? At times like these we remember that God is our Potter; we are the clay. When we break, His heart breaks for us. But where we can only see the ruins of our own lives, He already sees a new and beautiful thing. If only we will let ourselves be immersed in His living water, and let Him continue His amazing work of redemption in our lives. #ceramics #broken #jeremiah #potter #clay #redemption #beauty
