Psalm 33

"The Lord looks from heaven;
He sees all the sons of men.
From the place of His dwelling He looks
On all the inhabitants of the earth;
He fashions their hearts individually;
He considers all their works."
Psalm 33: 13-15
As soon as I read that this morning that Caedmon's Call song came to mind, "Hands of the potter" or that song we always sung at camp, "the potters hand". What an amazing thought for my day today. My strong and mighty God intimately knows my heart and is fashioning it!
I'll admit - the last few days I've been feeling a little frustrated with life. We found out this past weekend that the house we are renting temporarily has sold and we have til the end of this month to get out. Thankfully we hadn't unpacked all of our belongings and they are still neatly stacked in the basement ready for another move...but, still.

It's easy for me sometimes to think that God is so busy with everyone else that he isn't too concerned about my life. Which is silly. God has brought us here to Iowa, He has provided in every way...He does care about every detail. The reminder for me this morning that God truly is on high watching and caring is refreshing. Deep down I love the fact that I know God is using all of these transitions to His glory - and we can come out purified if we are willing, well, even if we aren't... I'm relieved to know that God knows the whole story and sees the whole picture. I'm in awe of the fact that I am just a lump of clay being pulled and molded and sometimes broken, melted and reused when my potter sees it necessary.
So, while I wait to see what will happen - I can rest that God knows. And thats enough for me. Since I dont' know how to post videos yet, I will give you the link...take a minute and let yourself be reminded of just exactly who you are and who God is. It's so refreshing.

I love that song -- and that Psalm!

I'm sorry to hear about having to move :( Do you happen to need any boxes? I just got done unpacking a bunch in our basement and would be happy to give you some! Let me know! And let us know if you need any help moving as well -- we'd be happy to help!
