He Hasn’t Made You Yet
A happily married woman with two children lost both of them. They were buried in the same grave, and she went into a deep emotional collapse.
For some years she became as weak and helpless as a little child. She had to be fed by members of her family who ministered to her. One day as her aunt, who was a joyful Christian, took her turn at feeding her, this woman who was unusually despondent that morning said, “Oh, Auntie, you say that God loves us. You say it, and you keep on saying it. I used to think that way, too, but if He loves us, why did He make me as I am?” The aunt, after kissing her gently, said with the wisdom of years, “He hasn’t made you yet, child. He’s making you now!”
When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
My grace, all-sufficient, shall be thy supply;
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
Thy dross to consume and thy gold to refine. (from Illustrations of Bible Truths)
Dear friend that’s the way it is. Remember the children’s chorus “He’s still working on me”. Indeed He is. It is God’s plan that we “be conformed to the image of his Son” (Romans 8:29).”Under construction” could be said of all saints.
