The Inner Court

By now you may be feeling encouraged or discouraged or maybe even disgusted about the plans you had for this New Year…I’m talking about those resolutions.

We’ll I’ve been pausing to ask myself: ‘What does God desire to refine in me?’

If you have ever watched a potter at their wheel, you’ll notice they begin with a round, moist lump of clay. The clay’s body is thrown down onto the wheel and centrifugal force is applied until no more roughness is felt.

The potter’s thumb is pressed into the center of the lump to make a hole to the potter’s measurements. The sides are molded, and the vessel is smoothened and shaped. The item is then cut from the wheel and left to stiffen.

With the start of a new year, most of us have good intentions. But oftentimes, we find that we aren’t as successful as we’d hope we would be; and when we don’t meet the mark or measure up, we become discouraged.

A piece of clay has to go through so many steps before it turns out into a beautiful piece of art. No matter what you set out to do this year, maybe attack it in a different way. Like the clay: throw your plans down and knead out what is not working for you.

I set out this year to tune up physically, but I realized it is just as important that I make some adjustments spiritually. No, I’m not gonna promise to read the entire Bible in a year, most definitely not going on a forty day fast, but what I can do is take it one day at a time.

Every morning that I get to open my eyes, I can do so with a grateful heart and whether I walk one or two miles or read one Scripture or an entire book in the Bible; God has me on His wheel and I’m feeling confident that when He is all done; I’ll be a piece of art that will bring Him glory!

Dr. Who?

blackwhite-woman-

I will assume there are several women out there who are like me who prefer a female OB/GYN.  My reason though it is humorous now, was not funny at first.  My story began, years ago when I was a KIDS Church leader. It was time for my annual check-up and so off to the doctors I went.  After completing the check-in ritual, I was shown to the examination room where put on the designer gown and patiently waited for my doctor to come in.

A few minutes later, a male doctor pops in and stares at me like he knows me.  I have this weird feeling inside my gut.  “Do you work at this hospital, you look familiar?” he asked.  “No”, I quickly responded and lowered my head.

I knew my regular doctor was pregnant, but her due date wasn’t for a couple of months.   I nervously asked where my doctor was. ‘Due to her condition’, he replied, ‘she had been transferred to another unit.’  I paused for a moment and then decided to go ahead with the checkup.  Following the exam, we had a brief consultation, I left the hospital and never gave this encounter a second thought.
