...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 workin' 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 hand!
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.
By Joel Hemphill
This little song that many of us remember from childhood really expresses where I am today. At forty-something, I am STILL a work-in-progress. I still have my issues, my foibles, my broken parts, hurts old and new...and God IS still working on me. For this I am grateful.
