Isaiah 64:8

Yet, O Lord, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are the work of your hand.

As Christians around the world prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, our family is anticipating the birth of our second child during this time. How appropriate it is to reflect on Isaiah 64:8. The birth of a child is so exciting. "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." Psalm 139:13-16.

Christmas is a wonderful time to appreciate that he truly is the potter and we are the clay. How awesome it is to know that he knows everything about us before we are even born and continues to mold us throughout our lives.

Let us all remember this Holiday Season that no one loves us as much and knows us as well as God. It is during the Christmas season that we pay special tribute to the wonderful birth of Jesus, a baby sent so long ago to provide salvation for all of us.

Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for continuing to mold our lives and making each of us the work of your hand. Amen.
