Willing Clay – v2

To be willing clay,
giving, open, ready
liquid in the potter’s hands
giving over to the master
letting go of control
our will submitting to Him
our bodies, our lives to His touch

Willing clay, pliable, giving,
receptive to the push, the pinch,
the molding of the Potter’s hands
to the loving changes, the pruning,
the corrections, the part painful,
in His time, what He wills
not our own, not our choice

Other than the giving in,
the turning over, the submission
the trusting of the Potter
letting our lives be transformed
our path changed, forever
our days reordered
by the hands of the Potter alone
