Complacency

I’ve been feeling like a blob of clay lately, rearranged and pushed in ways that are not comfortable. Being comfortable, peace at all times tends to be my motto! This challenge to leave my complacency has happened most of my life and I should be used to it. Yet as I look back I can see that when I resist the potter’s hands life becomes more difficult, painful and unfruitful. The times I have embraced The Potter’s gentle, loving spinning and molding, the baking and glazing I see in myself something wonderful that amazes me! I can see that I have been, am being molded into a vessel that my Father God can use for His glory!

Renovations

Renovations  I am a country girl living in the city for a short time. Lying in bed on a warm, July morning I could hear the city waking up through the open window. The roar and swish invaded my room and my comfort along with the much coveted breeze. It reflected the challenges I did not want to face in the day ahead.

REST IN MY LOVE

Warm peace washed over me.

Bang! Crash! pierced my balm as the basement renovation next door resumed. Large debris hitting the sides of the dumpster. Ouch! Lord I do not want this!

I AM DOING RENOVATIONS IN YOUR LIFE. REST IN MY LOVE.

Like warm waves on sandy Vancouver beaches I visited recently…. the peace of God washed over me.

Bang, Bang, Crash! Renovations, clearing out for the new. Oh the pain!

REST IN MY LOVE!

More waves of peace, rest.

Crash! Bang!

Close the window! Stop it!

LET IT GO! REST IN MY LOVE!

Waves crashing, slamming on the rocky shore, rubbing, wearing, breaking, grinding. The waves recede revealing warm, soft, golden sand.

REST IN MY LOVE
