Forged by Fire


Luke 13:34
New Living Translation (NLT)

34 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones God’s messengers! How often I have wanted to gather your children together as a hen protects her chicks beneath her wings, but you wouldn’t let me.

Creation Incubation

what does it take?
what’s the needed conditions?
to make us all grow
we need incubation,

not just our bodies
nor even our minds,
but as a person
the way we were designed,

we ask for pleasure,
we ask for gain,
who would ever
ask for more pain?

yet by our suffering
strength is conveyed,
then our eyes are opened
and compassion displayed,

nor would we request
to live like the poor,
to struggle to eat
would be hard to endure,

but are not our trials
our greatest life lessons?
might not they be
God’s greatest blessin’s?

You are the Potter and we are the clay. Please mold us into worthy vessels. Press us and twist us. Place us in the fire and change us from within. We trust You, Lord. Do as You will. There is nowhere else to go. Thank You for caring and loving us enough to give us what we need.

  1. I so agree, though I didn’t always. But I’ve learned that our Father God, the good good Father, hides immeasurable gems in the darkest valleys of pain–the harvest is always awesome when He brings me through. God bless you this week.
