The Potter's Hands

~ a 5x7 print on metallic photo paper ~

Publisher:Connie Campbell Bratcher

As the Potter's hands are busy
Molding His work of clay,
His vessel becomes more useful
In service to Him each day.
Every trial has its purpose,
Each loss - its infinite gain,
In the life of the Potter's child,
No suffering is in vain.
Tragedy, illness, and sorrow
May shatter our best made plans,
But perfect peace is ours...
Resting in The Potter's Hands.

I listed this print in my shop today.  This potter is such an amazing guy - counselor by day, potter by night.  Either way you look at it, he's finding ways to heal and share his passions with others.  I saw this poem online today, and I couldn't resist matching the two together.  Thank you, Connie Campbell Bratcher for writing such an amazing poem!

  1. As we look back on our lives we can see how God has allowed each situation to happen so that He can mold us into the people that He wants us to be. Awesome poem!

    Jeremiah 18:1-6 1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 2 Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words. 3 Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. 4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. 5 Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.
