The Potter - Poem by Jennie Chester
If we are to live through God’s glory and good times
We surely need a balance.
A balance that enables us to feel every emotion.
Whether that be good or bad.
Every emotion, good or bad, is to be treasured.
Because it’s God given – The Potter from above uses these feelings to mould us.
Because it’s that raw emotion we practice when we feel heart-rending, that also lets us live the emotions that let our heart know the times when our soul is elated.
Every experience, good or bad
Is to be used to mould our soul.
Each tragedy, travesty, moment of despair and moment of dejection makes us who we are today.
And will make us who we will be tomorrow.
Things, which are beyond our power to stop
Will happen to us.
Bad experiences are sometimes mandatory -
But what’s not mandatory is choosing to let them overcome us.
That balance that we so greatly need
Exists to mould us into people.
We would not be human if we only experienced desired emotions.
Let the Potter Mould you.
*Message 4 Amy– What doesn’t break us makes us stronger *
