I can see the questions that have come up in your mind since things don’t seem to be going as smoothly as you had expected or hoped. You wonder if you got it right, if you made the right decisions and choices along the way.

I understand the questions, sadness, hurt, and despair that you feel. I want you to know that I’m right here by your side. You are My child, and I love you and care for you with tenderness. I never put you in a place too small to grow in. This is a situation in which you can grow—an opportunity to learn new lessons and nurture qualities of My Spirit such as humility, faith, trust, and dependence on Me.

Be patient and allow Me to work in the situation. You are on My “potter’s wheel,”1 and if I’m going to make something beautiful of your life‚ I ask that you sit still and give Me time to work. You don’t have to worry that you’re going to be spinning on that wheel forever. Just remember that the time in the Potter’s hands is what’s making you an even better vessel.

Trust Me, for I do all things well. The work that I have begun in you‚ I will complete until the end.

  1. See Jeremiah 18:1–6.
