Today it is Mothers Day, and as I write, my family are cooking my favourite food for dinner. My son is travelling home from the city on the train and my Mum and Stepdad are soon to arrive for a time of celebration together.
Family events such as Mothers (and Fathers) Day, Christmas, birthdays and other occasions are not always happy times for many of us. Maybe you have experienced difficulties with family relationships, whether through frustration, separation, the passing of a loved one, or relational breakdown.
Today, I want to share a message of hope.
This morning I preached a message entitled, ‘God, The Master Craftsman’ and I would like to share a part of it with you.
Isaiah 64:8 says,
‘Yet, O LORD, you are our Father.
We are the clay, you are the potter;
we are all the work of your hand.’
Our Heavenly Father is a Master Craftsman who not only creates, who not only restores, but can make something beautiful out of something broken.
And as we see in the life of a woman called Naomi, He can take a situation where a family has been shattered and redeem it to create something wonderful and of great significance for His purposes.
