And the vessel that he was making from clay was spoiled in the hand of the potter; so he made it over, reworking it into another vessel as it seemed good to the potter to make it.
Jeremiah 18:4 AMP 

At this time, God told Jeremiah to go the potter’s house so that he could hear from God. When he arrived, he saw the potter making the changes to the clay because it had been marred. You see, the potter has to prepare the clay by picking just the right texture. Then it has to be cleansed of sticks and rocks, and after that he goes on to mold it in his hands. Sometimes the clay is too wet or dry and may crack or not form correctly; in this case, the potter will start over and continue until it is to his liking. God said, “Can I not do with you as this potter has done” (Jeremiah 18:6)?  
I picture in my mind all the times God has reshaped me, every time I learn a new thing from Him or let go of sin. Isaiah 64:8 says “We are ALL the works of your hand”—personalized by His hand. God will not give up on you. He will continue to reshape and remold you into a beautiful vessel designed for the unique purpose He has for you.
