Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Cor. 15:58

day 192: A work in progress

Colossians 2:19
...... For he holds the whole body together with its joints and ligaments, and it grows as God nourishes it.

Jedidja left a comment yesterday that really touched me and made me think.  I'd like to focus on the last part today... "My personality is not finished ..."

I can't tell you how many times I've wanted to be 'different': to act differently, to be more calm, less uptight, less aggravated at the small things, more 'lady-like', a softer voice, more patient (all things that would make really good new years resolutions lol) etc. 

I've spent so much time thing to be 'different' that I have no idea what I am. 

Then I read Jedidja's comment and I had to smile.  Of course I'm not who I 'want' to be yet... because God hadn't finished with me!  I have experiences to go through, love to share, things to write, etc.

If you aren't exactly how you want to be, remember that God isn't finished with you yet either.  You are where you are and how you are for a reason. 

God Bless You :)


  1. Wow, Kelly, great point. we are all growing and being moulded - by the Lord hopefully. so good to be catching up with you again.

  2. I love this Kelly! I am a work in progress. God's not finished with me yet, but I know He is faithful to finish what He has started.

    Many blessings!
