I went down to the potter's house and there he was, working at the
wheel. Whenever the object of clay which he was making turned out
badly in his hand, he tried again, making the clay another object of
whatever sort he pleased.
What we might see as broken and useless, God will repair
and use. This process of being remade can be painful, but
there is comfort in knowing we are in the potter's hands.
God sees beyond our flaws to our potential beauty
Psalm 146:1b–2, 3–4, 5–6ab
