No Matter How You Say It

“You made me like a handcrafted piece of pottery— and now are you going to smash me to pieces? Don’t you remember how beautifully you worked my clay?

Will you reduce me now to a mud pie?
Oh, that marvel of conception as you stirred together semen and ovum—
what a miracle of skin and bone, muscle and brain!
You gave me life itself, and incredible love.
You watched and guarded every breath I took. (Job 10:8-12, MSG)

Your hands have formed me and made me. Would you turn around and destroy me?
Remember [earnestly], I beseech you, that you have fashioned me as clay [out of the same earth material, exquisitely and elaborately]. And will you bring me into dust again?
Have you not poured me out like milk and curdled me like cheese?
You have clothed me with skin and flesh and have knit me together with bones and sinews.
You have granted me life and favor, and your providence has preserved my spirit.
(Job 10:8-12, AMPC)

Sometimes it is a trying task, being Lord all that you ask;
But we choose to learn, accept; obey; for you are Potter, we are clay.(Brenda J Wood)

Prayer- Lord, we are so fearfully and wonderfully made and we thank and praise you for the way we are, in Christ. (From Psalm 139:14) Amen.
