Personality test...

Well, I received my copy of MOTH and I've been trying to implement it. lol I am just not the organized type. I keep thinking, why am I doing this again? lol Not the best way to get on a schedule but it's hard to change who you are. Genevieve, on the other hand, is definitely thriving on a schedule. She just loves going from one thing to another and being able to ask, "What's next?" I am trying to keep her busy because it sure is helping her behaviour. WOW, what a difference.

My dh has been obsessed with personality types lately and it's got me wondering...can you change who you are? What if you take one of those high falutin' tests and it says you're a lazy bum who likes to have people wait on you hand and foot. lol What then? Do you just say, "oh well, I guess I'm just never going to be anything." lol (Well, maybe this person would...lol) Or would you change? Does God change you or does He use you "as is?" I think MOTH is going to change me. I think that it will be a good thing for me and my family. I think that all I have to do, is be willing to change. So does that mean the test was wrong or does it mean that I'm becoming who I really was all along? lol

Blessings,

Lisa,

I've wondered about the very questions you raise. In high school I took the tests and pegged them very high on one "type". 20 years later I don't test at all that way. I've matured...both in life and in the Lord. I think it is good to do these studies and tests...but it is important to remember that there ARE things the Bible says we are all to do - even if it goes against our personality types. KWIM? I knew one man who would write off being rude to others with the comment that "I don't have the gift of service or mercy" but the Bible tells us to "be kind one to another....Eph 4".

I think that God creates us with the personality He wants us to have to accomplish what He wants us to do.....and then we allow Him to mature and sanctify us and we totally throw ourselves on Him for strength in our weak areas....and the weak areas become stronger areas.

De'Etta,

Amen. It's exciting to see the changes in myself and others as we grow and allow ourselves to be molded by God. I know that I am not the same person I was 10 years ago and that I'll never be the same as I am now ever again. Each day brings me closer to who God is shaping me into. I am grateful that he has taken so much interest in me. LOL

Blessings,
