Kaeli Peterson, one of our youth leaders wrote the following, “Potter & Friend.” She shared some beautiful heavenly thoughts about moments of creation as she was having a personal quiet time with the Lord!

Potter & Friend
My view on creation is changing. I bet all of Heaven was silent. You could hear a pin drop as every angel gathered so closely to watch the Potter. They probably just piled on top of each other to catch a glimpse of their Master at work. Tears streaming down their faces in amazement. For they live in the presence of God, but here, they are watching Him put their very atmosphere in a person. They probably had so many questions.

I always knew HE took a long time crafting us. Because I know my God’s personality and I don’t see Him slapping us together and throwing us into this world. I always knew He went slow.

But I started thinking “Why? He doesn’t make mistakes. So why did He take so much time?” Today it hit me. He just wanted more time with us. He crafted that clay knowing some of us would never return to Him! Knowing this would be the last time He’d be able to hold us like this!

That must be why these bodies are so intricately created. And He’s probably relived that day in His mind so many times!

And what’s going to happen when those of us do return? What kind of embrace will He give us? He’s been waiting! And will the angels return to their state of awe as they feel a part of heaven’s atmosphere has returned? There’s a part of God’s presence that has come home! How they will bask in it!!

I have to ask, “Will you be returning?”

John 14:6 – Jesus says, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me.
John 1:12 – But as many as received him (Jesus) to them gave the power to become the sons of God, to those that believe (receive) on His name.

Your life could be changed today; don’t you want to return to the Father? He is waiting!
