Deep down, we know

When someone tries to impose

their cookie cutter beliefs on us,

we cringe for a reason.

We can’t bear to be sliced apart

from our natural connection with God.

Some people think they know what’s best for us, but

Deep down,

we know what we need to protect.

Deep down, we know

our Creator doesn’t run out of fresh ideas.

Deep down, we can sense

the unique shape we’re called to be.

It’s a shame when we run so fast from rigid thinking

that we slip

through the Potter’s fingers too,

when all He wants is to shape us gently

into more refined versions

of who we already are.

All He wants is to smooth away our rough edges

and make sure

no extra ingredients sneak in

and taint

the perfection of who He created us to be.
