God is referred to many times as the Master Potter...the molder and shaper of our lives. Few of us have trouble with the idea of Him shaping and remolding us as individuals, but how often do we think of Him remolding us as a couple? After all, if man and wife are "one flesh," wouldn't it stand to reason that God shapes marriage relationships too? Perhaps this is what God is doing in your life, but you haven't realized it. The changes that occur in a process like this can make you very uncomfortable, therefore, sleep may have eluded you as you've searched for answers to your pain.
Great emotional upheavals can take place when children are born or leave home, when finances are altered or jobs lost. A husband can become upset when his wife starts a career, and a wife can be beside herself during her husband's "mid-life crisis." But, as painful as these things are, they're all part of God shaping and molding us...not only as individuals, but as man and wife!As Jeremiah described, "I went down to the potter's house and I saw him working at the wheel. But, the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him" (Jeremiah 18:3-4, NIV).
There's the key: "shaping it as seemed best to him." Know that whatever is happening in your marriage – whatever attack of the enemy or even the results of your own mistakes you may be facing – God can reshape and remold both of you into a relationship that will be a true glory to Him...shaping it as He sees best!
