What do you see?

One of the things I love about being a potter is that we are trained to see what is in front of us...and then we are trained to see beyond what is in front of us.

•We are invited to explore the possibilities of what could be.•

Is it a lump of clay or a beautiful serving plate?

Is it your favorite cozy mug to drink hot coffee out of every morning or just a messy pile of dirt?

•There is a comfort in knowing both things can be true at the same time.•

What is in front of us can be acknowledged - as real, and ugly and maybe even unimpressive.

•But it doesn’t have to end there.•

What is in front of us that we cannot yet see?

What is possible?

What can this mess of nothing-ness become?

Maybe transformation happens when we place the raw material of our lives into the capable hands of the One who knows the end from the beginning.

When we begin to trust that He sees everything exactly as it is, so we don’t have to pretend. When we also believe that He doesn’t stop there, because He sees beyond it.

•And He won’t stop working until everything is the way He always imagined it to be.•

{As it is written: “I have made you a father of many nations.” He is our father in the presence of God, in whom he believed, the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being what does not yet exist. -Romans 4:17}
