Isaiah 64:8(NASB) "But now, O Lord, You are our Father, We are the clay, and You our potter; And all of us are the work of Your hand."There's just something about it, when you stand back and look at what you did! Whether it's a new train layout, a new house, and even a new duck coop, to stand back and look at your work, brings a sense of accomplishment! Today we read from Isaiah and how he describes that we are the work of the Lord! Sure it's hard work, the planning that goes into it but when you see it finished, it can bring a satisfaction like nothing else. During this time of "home stay", we may feel as if we aren't really accomplishing much but if we take a look in the mirror, we may just see that God is doing something within us. I see more and more social media posts about how the Lord is our strength, families reading the Bible, men reaching out with new ideas of how to connect with each other to encourage each of us to keep on keeping on. We must never forget that we are the clay and God is our potter, molding and shaping us and I wonder, as He steps back, if He is enjoying the work of His Hands within us?! Let's make Him proud of His Creations, that's US! peace, tom
