I've taken personality tests.
When I took the Myers Brigg test, I came out as equally extroverted and introverted. I could have told them. I like people but I also need time alone. Too much of one or the other and I'm not in my ...happy place.
I attended CLASS (Christian Leaders, Authors and Speakers Seminars) one year with the Littauer's. We each had to take their Personality Test as part of the conference. My dominant type was a popular sanguine but I'm almost equally a peaceful phlegmatic. I guess it depends on what I'm going through in my life.
Several years ago, my husband needed me to help out in his company. I really didn't want to sit at the computer all day learning about social media and tools like Twitter and social networks. But in the process ...I discovered blogging!
If I had insisted on doing what I wanted to do, I would have missed out on a wonderful opportunity of growth and learning.
You see the Lord knows me better than I do. After all, He created me (El Elohim) and sees everything about me (El Roi). God knew exactly what I needed to learn and what I do best.
Helping my husband is honoring him and showing love to him. After all, Greg's love language is acts of service. When I help him, he feels loved by me. BTW, he's always thanking me for my help. :)
In my obedience, the Lord has blessed me with awesome blogging friends. I've even had the opportunity to meet several of them including:
- Iris of Grace Alone and Laced with Grace
- Lori of Lori's Reflections
- Sara of Splashin' Glory
- Kathleen of Sassy Granny
- Charlotte of At Home in Scottsdale
- Mary of Pile of Smiles
- Marty of A Stroll Thru Life
- Sherry of Country Wings in Phoenix
- Donetta of A Life Uncommon
- Michele of Beelieve You Can
- Jackie of BIKE with Jackie
I may not fit into a perfect gift box but I am becoming the woman God created me to be. I find such joy when I have the opportunity to encourage others and share from my heart. Only God knew ...
He's not finished with me yet. And I have to say I'm very grateful for that.
I almost forgot to tell you that I'm over at Laced with Grace today too. I wrote on the topic of ...focus.
With so many challenges and distractions in life today, it's important to remember where our focus should be. I hope you'll stop by and add your comments.
Blessings and love,
