SHEDDING That which I once was So quickly fading away As the Light shines through This bowl took a long time to make. After the many hours spent carving out the delicate clay body, it then sat for months on our shelf awaiting its turn to be glazed while we busied ourselves with more urgent work. Then finally we got back to it, and before we knew it, it was finished. And isn’t this so much like my walk with Christ? In so many areas of my life I’ve allowed myself to be distracted by all sorts of things, when I could have just easily taken that next important step in my faith. Enough of half measures. May the Light shine through all the dark and hidden corners in my life, so that my old self can just fade away and be replaced by what is pure and eternal. #light #shine #porous #perforated #carving #pottery #ceramics #studioasobi

SHEDDING
That which I once was
So quickly fading away
As the Light shines through

This bowl took a long time to make. After the many hours spent carving out the delicate clay body, it then sat for months on our shelf awaiting its turn to be glazed while we busied ourselves with more urgent work. 
Then finally we got back to it, and before we knew it, it was finished. 
And isn't this so much like my walk with Christ? In so many areas of my life I've allowed myself to be distracted by all sorts of things, when I could have just easily taken that next important step in my faith. Enough of half measures. May the Light shine through all the dark and hidden corners in my life, so that my old self can just fade away and be replaced by what is pure and eternal.
