The day Jason Lawson’s stress reached a tipping point, he found himself shaking so badly he couldn’t even pour orange juice into a blender for his family’s breakfast. He felt like his world was falling around him, and he was afraid of losing his family, his job, and his mind. But that was the day Jason met the Potter. Not the cartoon God on nursery walls, or the religious God preached about in many churches. That day, Jason began a journey with the Potter to learn Who He really is and why He created man, and this journey is compiled in his new devotional The Potter’s Hands: A 366-Day Journey to Knowing God.
The Potter’s Hands tackles questions such as:
- If the Potter is so good, then why did He create me to hurt and struggle?
- Why am I so cracked and flawed?
- Why does He fill me with so much pain?
. . . and many more.
The answer Jason found was simple—He is the Potter and we are the clay. He formed us for His glory, not our comfort. He decides our size and shape, He chooses what to pour into us, and He is the One Who determines where He places us. Our role in this is to trust Him as the Potter, the Savior, the Counselor, the Servant, the Commander, the Spirit, the Creator, the Father, the Rabbi, the Redeemer, the Healer, and the Shepherd.
The heartbeat of The Potter’s Hands is to remind readers that the clay can do nothing apart from the Potter’s hands, but in the Potter’s hands, He can create a masterpiece for His glory. What more could we ask for?
Come along for one year and walk with Him. Let the Potter reveal to you Who He really is.
