How To Carve A Duck
First we must accept that we are a block of wood and allow the Artist to cut, shape, and sand us where He will.
This means viewing our circumstances – pleasant or unpleasant – as God’s tools that shape us. He forms us, one part at a time, into the beautiful creature He envisioned in our ungainly lump of wood. Sometimes the process is wonderful; sometimes it is painful.
Father, You are the craftsman who shapes me. You are the one who knows what shape my life should take. Thank You for carving me into the image You have planned. Help me to trust that the pieces and parts that You shave from me are the right ones.
Growing in Christ comes from a deepening relationship with Him.
