The Portrait of Life

As I was thinking about people, myself included, how we are; how we look at ourselves, how sometimes we are never satisfied with who we are or where we came from, gentle thoughts came to me in the form of questions:

  • Do you have the right to question how you were created when you were not the creator?
  • Can a picture say to the artist, “you never had a right to paint me the way that you did.
  • Can a vase say to the potter, “You should never have designed me that way. I would have preferred to be yellow with a pink flower instead of being purple with gold stripes.

I can give so many examples of the creations disliking what the creator did. However, we must learn to be satisfied in whatever way that we were formed.  We must learn to accept ourselves for who we are and how we are.  We must be as the clay is on the potter’s wheel.  Totally submitted into the hands of the potter.  For the potter is in control of all of his vessels as the artist is in control of all of his designs, and as the Creator is in control of all of His creation.

Herein lies the secret of life.  We must learn submerge and submission in order to become a perfect vessel.
