We all want to be the finished piece of art, the vessel that God can use in his Kingdom. But often we want to skip the process it takes to get there and we forget our first calling… to be clay. God desires to use the circumstances in your life and help mold and shape you into a vessel to be used for his plans and purposes, but you’ve got to surrender yourself to the process.
God has something incredible in store for you, but here are some things he needs to do in you first so you can thrive where he is taking you. He needs to build something strong in you so you can handle the capacity of blessing and responsibility where he is taking you.
So often we are so focused on the destination and what we have not yet accomplished, and we forget to enjoy the process. It’s ok to stop once in a while and celebrate how far you’ve come. You may not be where you want to be yet, but the progress is good.
