This is the scripture that she choose.
Isaiah 64:8 Yet you, LORD, are our Father.
We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.
When I was little I took a pottery class. We kneaded the clay for a long time to get the air bubbles out, and then we used the pottery wheel to thow the pots. We had to use just the right amount of water and pressure. Too thin of walls and the pots would crack. Too thick was bad too.Sometimes, we would have to start over and rethrow the pots. When we got a pot that we liked, then they went into the kiln to be fired.
When I am tempted to judge others, I need to remember that we are all "works in progress". God isn't done with us yet. Some of us are being kneaded, some of us are being thrown, or rethrown, some of us are being shaped by the potter's hands, and some of us are in the fire of the kiln. God's goal it to turn us into His masterpieces. His works of art. Unfortunately, from my experience doing pottery, I know that sometimes when we put our pots into the kiln, no matter how much work we put into making them, they exploded and were worthless pieces of scrap.
The amazing part of salvation, is that we have a choice. We can submit to God and what He wants to do with our lives, or we can go our own way. He loves us so much he gives us that choice.
One choice leads to life however the other leads to death.
If you haven't made that choice, today could be the day that you choose life. If you have any questions about making that choice, you can leave a message with me or any of my Stampin' Sisters in Christ and we would all love to share with you about how we made that choice for life.

This is the old hymn that comes to my mind when I read this scripture. I pray that you have a blessed week.
