He's Still Working on Me

This meme has been making the rounds of Facebook. If you can't read it, it says:
Yes I'm a Christian. Yes I can be the biggest hypocrite ever. I backslide. I stumble. I fail. I stray onto the wrong path. But God is working in me. I may be a mess, but I'm His mess. And He is slowly straightening me out. And the day will come when I will be by His side, His work in me completed. And until that day I will take His hand, and let Him do in me whatever needs to be done, no matter how painful it will be for me. When He is finished, it will all be worth it.
This touched me, because I'm a mess, too, a lot of the time. I stumble and fail and stray. But I hope God is working in my life.

It reminded me of a song our choir did years ago, called "He's Still Working on Me." It goes like this:
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
'Cause He's still workin' on me
Both of these quotes make me feel better. I hope God is working in me and will eventually accept me into His loving arms.

What do you think? Do you sometimes stumble or fail or stray? Do you feel God working in your life?


  1. All the time. For me it isn't so much about never stumbling but the skills I acquire in getting back up.

  2. I think most of us are a work in progress. It is just most people do not openly admit it . Maybe if we did we would all have more patience with each other.
