When I woke up this morning I realized that I had gone to bed without completing my paperwork from our last run. We don't get paid for each trip until the paperwork is completed, scanned to our company, and processed by them. I rarely forget to finish it. So I was a little frustrated with myself when I realized it.
But I got down to the business of getting it done.
In my frustration and impatience with myself I thought about my spiritual self.
I am a work in progress, meaning, not yet completed. Does God get impatient and frustrated with my lack of completion? Does He shake His head when He has to mold something in me that He had already molded once before but I did not hold the shape?
I know that God is working on me and in me. And I know that He is patient and kind and is working on me continuously to bring me to completion.
Thank You, Father God, You are the potter. I am the clay. Mold me and make me. This is what I pray.
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 NASB)
Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. (1 John 3:2 NASB)
