A Masterpiece Called Woman   by LN Johnson
 mpwm-fb-300x102As we approach the end of our summer Women’s Bible Study, there’s a feeling of both fulfillment and yearning.  Fulfillment with the work God has completed to bring us to a new place in Him as an individual and corporately aswomen. And then, yearning that leaves us with a little sadness and a strong desire for God to continue His necessarywork. Both feelings are springboards into letting God finish His masterpiece. 

The Potter has been purifying us. Over the past seven weeks, He has been washing out and working out impurities that keep us from becoming something beautiful. And then, He’s been poking and squeezing, resulting in the of pain that makes us asks, “Why Lord?” The Potter answers, “I’m shaping you into something of great value. Trust Me.” And then there’s the heat. Like the 2,000 degrees of a kiln oven. If the clay could talk, it would probably scream, “You’re killin’ me in here!” But, you see, the heat solidifies and makes the beautifying work that the Potter is doing permanent. 

Without the heat, we would lose what He’s made us. The heat makes it last.So my sister, everything we are going through right now is a tool in the hands of the Master Potter. It’s not random. It’s not just about the situation we can see in front of us. It’s the tool chosen by the Potter who is also our loving Father. We must choose to let Him do His wonderful work in us. We can trust His loving hands even when we can’t understand what He’s doing. He’s using what’s happening to make us more beautiful and more valuable than we could ever imagine.

For we are God’s masterpiece, He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:10 (New Living Translation)
