"May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us;
establish the work of our hands for us ~ yes, establish
the work of our hands." Psalm 90:17 (NIV)
Recently, my youngest daughter was given an opportunity to "throw a pot" at a nearby potter's house. Before beginning, the instructing potter said, "Do not be afraid to mess up. It's just clay!"
So often we fail to begin, because we believe in the end we will fail. We should remember the words of the potter....for perhaps the Master Potter too is saying, "Do not be afraid to mess up. You are just clay!"
The One who formed us understands. He will take our unskilled hands in His and with the skill of the Master potter, help us to begin again.
I so love fresh starts!
