There’s a song I love. “Potter and Friend” by Dante Bowe ft.. Jesse Cline.
A verse in the song goes like this…
So put me on your wheel now…
And spin me around, spin me around
Place me in your flame now…
Until you see through me
And I’m ready to come out…..
As a child, i enjoyed being spun around by my uncles, it was just exhilarating, it felt like flying. As an adult, i won’t mind still being spun around too, but i guess I’ve outgrown that😊. There’s just something exciting about it, but everytime i got my feet back on the ground there was always this woozy feeling, like my head was still spinning and I’d have to shut my eyes for a while to get my balance and then lean on something or someone for support. But all this didn’t mean I wouldn’t jump at the next oppurtunity to be spun around. The woozy after-effect was all part of the fun!
In the past few weeks, I’ve felt like that child again, only this time the one that’s spinning me around is my heavenly Father. He’s been spinning me on his wheel (again), and i have that woozy confused feeling, right now all i can do is shut my eyes tight and look for support.
Scriptures describe God as a potter…
But now, O LORD, You are our Father, We are the clay, and You our potter; And all of us are the work of Your hand.
And so like clay is spun on a wheel, from time to time he spins us around, his aim? To mould us into who he has made us to be. The only issue I have is that having come off the wheel, for now (at least i think I’m off, I hope i’m off)……
my head is still spinning, but instead of that excitement of being spun as a child, i feel a bit confused.
I can’t even explain (I tried, I’ve typed and deleted about three times), so as not to drag you into this wooziness of mine. It just that God is reshaping my ideologies and beliefs and its a bit hard to learn at this point that things I have been brought up with as good and Godly were good, but not necessarily Godly (chew on that for a minute, I hope I get to explain sometime soon how Good and God aren’t necessarily the same). But my point is, as my eyes are being opened and I learn more about God and His son Jesus, I feel like “so what about all the things i knew before?” I feel spun around, and now I’m having spiritual vertigo😊.
But just like i would find someone/something to lean on as a child, I also found something to lean on now, and that’s God’s love. You see, God’s love is amaaazzzinnnng! His love is so high, deep and wide that we can’t comprehend it…
And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.
That’s my anchor in this time of spinning, He LOVES me! Even when i don’t understand where I am, He still loves me and that’s one thing that can never change. So maybe you are where I am or somwhere close, felling tossed by trials or spun around by new understanding. Rest in his love because it never changes and truly, It’s what matters most.
P.s- I missed writing last week, and I missed you,😉.
