God VS Humans VS Terracotta clay

“God uses pressure, pain and difficulties to prepare us for greater things. Just like pressure is used to squeeze out oil from the olives, and pressure shapes diamonds, and fire refines gold.

Just as the potter uses heat to shape clay into the form and shape, He wants it to be, God does same with us, to bring out our inner treasures and to make us use our potentials to the fullest.

God is not sending you difficult situations to hurt you; He is doing so to strengthen you; make you grow and to prepare you for your Destiny and Greatness.”
