Desiring to be a Woman after God’s own Heart.

So, I took the a test. A unique personality test that will give your insight as to how you learn and connect with God and what Biblical character you are most like. Mine: David! I was in tears as I read my results…when I first become a Christian, I was crying to God one night, asking Him to forgive me and I asked why did He choose me? Why me out of billions in this world. His reply…you have the heart of David. 🙂 I had no idea what that meant at the time…now I know. A heart that He gave me. Thankful He chose me, redeemed me and is now sanctifying me for His glory!

My learning style…

The verbal style involves both the written and spoken word. If you use this style, you find it easy to express yourself, both in writing

and verbally. You love reading and writing. You like playing on the meaning or sound of words, such as in tongue twisters, rhymes,

limericks, and the like. You like reading, and do it regularly. You know the meaning of many words, and regularly make an effort to find

the meaning of new words. You use these words, as well as phrases you have picked up recently, when talking to others. Pursuits that

use the verbal style include public speaking, debating, politics, writing, and journalism.

You may use phrases like these:

Tell me word for word…

Let’s talk later.

The word you’re looking for is…

I hear you but I’m not sure I agree.

Let me spell it out for you.

In other words…

You are a reader, try the techniques that involve reading and writing. Find ways to incorporate more speaking and writing in these

techniques like storytelling, teaching, and journaling.

How I connect with God…

People on the Creation Pathway have a passionate ability to connect with God when they are experiencing the world He made.

Being outdoors replenishes and energizes them. If they are cooped up inside too long their soul starts to feel stale. They see God in the

spectacular but also in the everyday outside world. People on this pathway need to spend large chunks of time outdoors, often

praying or meditating. These people need to guard against using this pathway as an escape when people disappoint. They also need

to guard against thinking that they don’t need the church because they can worship God alone in nature.

David’s personality.

David was passionate, strong, creative, and loved. He was the king of Israel for forty years, and the Bible describes David as a man

after God’s own heart (1 Samuel 13:14). David was promised that the Savior of the world would be his descendant. David was a

shepherd, musician, worshipper, and courageous warrior. He trusted in the sovereignty of God, evident by his decision to face a giant as

a kid. He survived the chase of a mad king, defended his people against many nations, and prevailed against an attempted

coup from one of his own sons. He wrote poems and songs of worship that fill the book of Psalms in the Bible. Despite lapses in his

judgment and moral behavior, David pursued godliness and faithfulness throughout his life. He left a lasting legacy of bold faith

and obedience. If you have a David personality, you are warm, compassionate, intuitive, and expressive. You love the stillness and

quiet. Creativity is your lifeblood and you have the ability to feel things deeply. However, you can be plagued with self-doubt. You are

motivated to search and to find your identity in order to express who you are and find meaning and significance. You surround yourself

with things that you think are compelling and beautiful. For you, to create is to live! Establishing a true, honest, and unique persona is

important to you. Because you have the capacity to see what others miss, you sometimes feel out of the mainstream and mistakenly feel

less competent socially. Sometimes this power to empathize and see the uncommon thread in things can lead you to see yourself as one

of a kind. You are abundantly and intuitively creative, expressing the personal and the universal, possibly in a work of art. You are

inspired, self-renewing, and regenerating. You have an uncanny ability to turn ordinary life experiences into something profound and

valuable. At your best, you are honest with yourself and those around you. You can address an issue, problem, or feeling without

overreacting and without others feeling like you are being patronizing. You love to discover the truth in each experience. When

you are at your best, you are looking for God and His creative power even in tough situations, conflicts, and mistakes. You are

able to heighten reality through passionate feelings and imagination. Harnessing your feelings can be hard for you and when you

cannot control them, you are prone to blame and hold grudges. In these times, it is wise to trust God in your hurts and to allow him to

make things right. Try to separate godly conviction from undue anger at yourself. Move toward right thinking and wise living by

reading Psalms and Proverbs and refuse to get stuck in the past. If you become attached to longing and disappointment, you may not be

able to recognize the many treasures in your life. You have the tendency to become envious of another person’s talent,

success, good fortune, wealth, recognition, honor, or advantages. You can become preoccupied with a sense of discontent that is

primarily based on what others have. Unlike covetousness or greed, envy is fundamentally comparative in nature. If you are like David,

here are some thoughts for you:

– Because you are a creative at heart, find ways to make some of the things you must do in your

everyday life fun, creative, and playful.

– If the work you do for an income is not particularly creative, be sure to take regular portions of your free time for ideas that you have

to take hold.

– It is very important for you to develop a good habit of sleep, eating, exercise, and work. Be disciplined in these four areas.

They will make a huge difference in your life.

– Remind yourself of this truth: God has made you perfectly and has given you everything you need. You are capable and loveable—just

as you are.

– You must address your tendency to be envious head-on! First, make a list of things that you are grateful for. Write it big, then post

that list where you see it every day. Next, list some things you admire in someone else around you. Over the next year, work to develop

those same qualities in yourself.

Job, Sarah, Hagar, Leah, and Eve.

You tend to be more serious, reserved, and withdrawn. You are insightful, idealistic, and often more interested in the world

of imagination than in everyday life.

You tend to be analytical and objective.

You are focused and you persevere.
