He’s Still Working on Me

The late thirties seem to be for me a time of challenge and reflection. Maybe turning forty next year won’t be so bad after all! I appreciate how the Lord is never done with me. I love that about Him. In His perfect wisdom, He sees the timing and steps needed to complete each of His precious projects.

Our human nature seeks to finish a task and move on. Some people, like my husband, enjoy being in the process of a task. Others, like me, love the result, the product, being there, etc. The Lord, however, sees His children as being continually in process until they arrive home at His appointed time. This is comforting to me when I am being tossed around by the waves of my earthly boat ride. This is simply my journey to completion in Him. I can rest, knowing He is working in my life through every situation.

When I was around eight years old, I learned to sing “He’s Still Working on Me” by Joel Hemphill. I performed it in many places as I was growing up. I still remember it well.

He’s still working on me
To make me what I ought to be
It took Him just a week to make the moon and stars
The sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars
How loving and patient He must be
He’s still working on me

There really ought to be a sign upon my heart
Don’t judge me yet, there’s an unfinished part
But I’ll be perfect just according to His plan
Fashioned by the Master’s loving hands

In the mirror of His Word, reflections that I see
Make me wonder why He never gave up on me
He loves me as I am and helps me when I pray
Remember He’s the Potter, I’m the clay

For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus (Philippians. 1:6).

Dear Lord, thank You for Your patience with me. Thank You that You never tire of my being “in process.” Please do as only You can to transform me into the likeness of Your Son. I’m so ready to be more like Him.
