I Am A What???

Ok, he is kind of cute...but really?

Let me explain...our Pastor at church has been teaching us on Wednesday evenings how to know what your spiritual gift is.

This past Wednesday he had us take a personality test.

I know, right?

My scores clearly said that I am a sanguine. According to otter.

The dictionary tells me this:

san·guine   [sang-gwin] adjective
1.cheerfully optimistic, hopeful, or confident:

Sounds good to me but the reality is there are also negatives or weaknesses to being a sanguine. Honestly, the weaknesses probably describe me better than the positive.

The negative qualities include..disorganization...

Ok, ok please stop laughing, you are hurting my feelings.

Lack of follow through was another (see the date on my last post if you are wondering about that. However, in my defense I have been blogging over at Saving With Purpose.)

Sanguine personalities also tend to be daydreamers.

I am fitting the mold more and more.

I daydream. ALOT.

I daydream about owning a beach house that we rent out throughout the year, but have to ourselves whenever we want.
I dream about owning my own business....and it being successful.
Doing what you ask? I have no idea.
I dream about making a lot of money blogging...however, the negative trait weakness of follow through seriously prohibits this.

So what's a girl to do with this information...

Not too much.

II Corinthians 12:9 says "But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me."

and thankfully Philippians 4:13 tells me "I can do all this through him who gives me strength."

I can't let it define me and certainly not limit me. I am only defined by who I am in Christ.

In the end we all have weaknesses, but through Christ we can rise above the weaknesses or negative traits to bring honor and glory to the one who has saved us.

I found a similar test that our Pastor gave to us here, if you would like to see what your personality is check it out

By the way, it looks like I could be a beaver too.....just sayin'
