Overview

How do you place God in your heart when you never believed He was there from the start?
Ellis Lucas saw no hope of salvation or meaning in life or the world around him. Isolation, uncontrollable anger, and violence, abandonment and feeling unwanted, describes a lost and broken young Ellis, inebriated by drinking from the deceptive cisterns and poisoned waters of this passing age!
His life had spiraled into years of addiction, a violent car wreck, almost losing his life in a house fire, mounting debts, jail, a broken marriage and eventually a single choice, life or death? As he was ready to surrender, only then did he begin to see, through the eyes of God, the signs around him-even in the cat he swore he'd kill-that there was purpose and promise.
In his pivotal debut book, Ellis takes you through his harrowing journey that is part drug addiction memoirs interwoven with true stories of abuse and emotional abuse recovery. You'll see the struggle, the pain, and come to know what it truly means to have God's grace in your suffering.
Like clay, we are crafted by the hands that hold us, cherish us and mold us, but we also make our decisions in a world full of vices we find hard to escape. All too often we forget that our self-destructive behaviors hurt not only ourselves, but those we love most. The Potter and the Clay is an extraordinary and poignant testimony of a father to his son, but it is also the remarkable story of spiritual healing; of one man's crafted deliverance into the hands of God and how divine providence can turn ashes and the wreckage of a shattered life into a work of heavenly art.
