He's Still Working on Me
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.
1. There really ought to be a sign upon the heart,
Don't judge her yet, there's an unfinished part.
But I'll be perfect just according to His plan
Fashioned by the Master's loving hands.
2. 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.
Thank goodness God is not finished with me yet! I often think of this song that I learned as a child. Especially the days when I look at myself and think "oh man, what was I thinking, what have I done?" It's good to remember that even though God has done wonders in my life that I am still a work in progress- He is still working on me. Oh how I would love to hang a sign upon my heart that reads "Don't judge me yet, there's an unfinished part."
We are all a work of art, being deigned perfectly by the Master's gentle hands. He works out every area of our lives, He smooths the rough edges, He shapes us in a way that makes us unique, He takes His time to make the clay into a complete work of art. I picture a smile on His face as He looks down at His piece. Knowing that this piece is not finished, yet He can see the end work and loves every moment. Every spin of the wheel, He builds it up higher and higher; stronger and stronger. Never giving up, He patiently waits as the clay becomes a beautiful piece of art.
He's the Potter, we are the clay. Thank you God, that we are in good hands. Without the Potter, we are but a ball of rounded mud and water. We were meant to be more useful and significant. We were meant to be formed and made whole. It may take time, but know that God has a plan for you. No matter where He is with your "piece", know that He's still working on you!
