Like a Pumpkin
I recently had the opportunity to preach a Sunday Morning service. During the message I spoke from a text in Jeremiah where he observes a potter making a vessel on the wheel. I talked about how we are like the clay and God is the potter, taking us through the process of becoming the vessel He desires for us to be.
Today, a wonderful member of our church sent me a forwarded message with a similar reminder. I share it with you because I know that sometimes we all just feel like our lives are full of junk…but take heart, God is not done cleaning you out!
Being the person God intends is like being a pumpkin.God lifts you up, takes you in, and washes all the dirt off of you.He opens you up, touches you deep inside and scoops out all of the yucky stuff– including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc.Then He carves a bright new smiling face on you and puts His light inside of youto shine for all the world to see.
