Under Construction, I am

Yet, O LORD, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.

~Isaiah 64:8~

Every human being is God’s workmanship. Everything in me is His.

I took a temperament quiz earlier today. It had 5 questions on it. I took it even though I already had an idea what the result would be. I guess I just needed something to back that particular knowledge up.

You Have a Choleric Temperament

You are a person of great enthusiasm – easily excited by many things.Unsatisfied by the ordinary, you are reaching for an epic, extraordinary life.

You want the best. The best life. The best love. The best reputation.

You posses a sharp and keen intellect. Your mind is your primary weapon.

Strong willed, nothing can keep you down. Your energy can break down any wall.

You’re an instantly passionate person – and this passion gives you an intoxicating power over others.

At your worst, you are a narcissist. Full of yourself and even proud of your faults.

Stubborn and opinionated, you know what you think is right. End of discussion.

A bit of a misanthrope, you often see others as weak, ignorant, and inferior.

Temperament quiz results may define who you are in the flesh, but they should not define who you are in Christ. As long as we are in our human form, there will always be imperfections. Scripture likens us to clay – formless – until the Potter takes us and molds us into something beautiful, useful.

When you get to know yourself better, you will find it easy to harness your strengths and slowly have your weaknesses eliminated. Of course, it wouldn’t be that easy. And it would take some time. Actually, it would take your entire lifetime. When people would look at you and wonder why you aren’t the person you are supposed to be in Christ, remember that God is not yet finished with you.

God is not yet finished with me. I am, as of the moment, still under construction.
