He’s Still Working On Me

He’s Still Working On Me

We dumped the plastic bag of duct tape on the kitchen table and began designing our duct tape purses. My best friend/crafting partner and I had a wave of inspiration in a lazy summer afternoon, and we decided to master a new art: duct tape accessories.  We discussed size, shape, and color. We dreamed of embellishments and unique touches.

Within a few minutes, I had started piecing together a bright yellow tote with an orange duck on the front.  I worked quickly, eager to complete the craft.  My friend, on the other hand, was meticulously flattening strips of tape before perfectly positioning the pieces together.  Although we both finished our yellow totes the same day,  it was easy to see who had put more time, care, and diligence into the project.  I wanted the project finished.  She wanted the project finished properly.

As a child, I learned a song that said, “He’s still working on me to make me what I want to be.”  At the time, I thought that I would be finished by adulthood, but God is STILL working on me, and I am thankful that He is not done yet.  I am still a work in progress.  He is putting the necessary care and diligence into sanctifying me, and I must patiently wait for the time of completion.

Time. Care. Diligence.  That is what it takes to complete a perfect project.

“How loving and patient He must be. He’s still working on me.”

  1. Amen… That fire of sanctification is not easy to bear, but I’m so grateful that He continues to work on us, and that He will complete that good work in us. It’s a good thing to change, but it’s still not exactly easy. It’s a battle, but I’m so grateful that Jesus Christ paved the way as our Captain and the Author and Finisher of our faith.
