Your circumstances are hard ~
I’m not punishing you,
I’m molding you.
If we allow Him, God uses every difficult circumstance to mold us more and more into His likeness.
Will you let Him?
We are the clay, and You are the potter
Has life gotten rough? On many occasions, it has for me. In the midst of my storms, God speaks these snippets of love and encouragement into my spirit. I pray they also bless you.

You are presenting a wonderful perspective for us to view our trials in life. If we could all remind ourselves of this truth it would revolutionize the trying times we face. Thanks for the blessing.
Amen. thanks for the feedback. No matter what happens in this life, God is good! Blessings.
short saying but this is truly makes me more strong in God to face any life difficulties..Thank you for sharing 🙂
Amen. Sometimes hard to accept when going through the difficulties, but God is so faithful to help us through each one. Thanks, Karina, and blessings.
The molding part can be painful . . . but when the Lord is finished there is always something that looks a little more like Him in my life . . . and I know with me He has a whole lot more molding to do! ~ Blessings ~
Yes, me too! I am pretty much still just a big ole’ lump of clay! blessings, my friend!
Girl, either I am VERY hard headed or God is REALLY having a challenge molding ME more into HIS likeness!! 🙂 It has been a LONG LIFE! HA!!! Great word. Thanks friend!!!

Thanks, Wendy. I have been putting my images with Scripture on my Facebook page but can’t seem to get much interest. If you are on FB, you can Like my page if you wish and share as you wish.
Yes, I think I will. I sometimes post my stuff on Facebook too. I also have a page for my studio stuff – the link is on the sidebar of my blog. ( Purselanestudio on Facebook)
Molding of anything in the natural always takes pressure and/or heat. Believe me I have felt both, but I am today a more “knowing” person in Christ in relation to just a “believing” and don’t get me wrong, I am not criticizing my brothers and sisters who are still at the believing stage in their life, it takes the believing over much time and through much “pressure” (molding) to get to the stage of knowing. It’s not always easy, but boy is it ever worth it! I wouldn’t CHANGE a thing that the Lord has led me through or to for what I have in Him today!
God bless for such an inspiring post.
Amen to having been through the fire stage, but in the process coming to realize how wonderful is our LORD… the only things I would change about my past are the times that I brought things on my own head through my sins. Blessings on your Sunday!
But Sis, you must remember what Paul stated in Romans, “ALL things work together for good to them that love the Lord and are called according to His purpose.” I’m not criticizing, just trying to encourage. You suffer from the same malady I did until the Holy Spirit convicted me (convinced) that we either take ALL the Word and His word states that even our past, even our ignorance and yes Sis, even our past sins, can be used if the Lord is indeed in control of our lives. That’s what makes grace and mercy so AWESOME in its nature!! But Sis, just be encouraged, I love you for sharing though I truly do! God bless you greatly! You ARE precious in HIS sight! Completely!
Amen. He has worked it for good. We just have to reap and that’s the part I would like to have avoided. But yes, God’s grace is so amazing! Blessings
