Can We Talk – Homework Week #2, Day #1

Jeremiah 18:3-6. I love these verses of scripture. The Lord is pictured as a potter. We are the clay. As He molds us on the wheel and we become flawed, He molds us into something else.

I feel as if my life has been through several edits. Sometimes, this can be a painful or frightening process. I have learned that we cause the pain or fear ourselves because we are not following in God’s footprints, but are rather forging ahead, blazing the trail where He never intended us to go.

There have been good edits, too. Cross-country moves, changes in career and church affiliation. The difference between the scary changes and the good changes have been how tightly I have a grip on His robe as He walks the path before me and I simply follow Him.

That has been my cancer journey in a nutshell: hanging onto His robe and following Him. There was nowhere else to go. I am praying that I won’t let go now that chemo is done, but that I will continue to cling tightly to my Savior so that I won’t stray from the path He has prepared for me.
