The Potter's Wheel

 



 “You be holy as I am holy.”
Is that possible, Lord, in this life?
I’m a human with mind so lowly
And vexed daily with much pain and strife.

It’s just too hard, this command of His,
Concept I can’t wrap my mind around.
How can a human, who’s not a whiz,
Understand it’s meaning and abound?

Can you embrace it without seeming
A “know it all” with mind in the clouds
Unreal to those He is redeeming?
Dare I dig, separate from the crowd?

It is so painful, this reshaping
As He melts and molds this earthly clay.
Beautiful vessels He would be making
If I let Him work in His own way.

Lord, You will finish what You started
When I gave You my life and my heart.
Help me trust Your goals won’t be thwarted
As I yield as I did at the start.
