Sometimes I don’t like being an ISFJ!


Sometimes, I don’t like being an ISFJ. Introverted, Sensing, Feeling, Judging. In practical words, “Introverted Sensing with Extraverted Feeling”, also known as, “The Nurturer”.

I feel every thing! When I’m happy, I’m the bubbliest person you can find. But when someone is hurting, I feel it. If i’m experiencing life altering emotions, my sensing feelings are escalated. I feel it in my core! Being an ISFJ can also get me into trouble but Jesus helps to guide me and which prevents my sensing emotions to lead me. Sometimes, I listen, other times I don’t. However, “I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you {me} will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6

He works with us in our weaknesses. Not leaving us to be lead by our defenses and resolves. Leaning on His wisdom saves us from heart break, and other inconveniences life offers. I pray that you and I can lean into His voice every time He speaks. He longs to guide us in truth and prevent ourselves and others from being the “victim” of our actions. 

The greatness in being an ISFJ is, that in the Lord’s hands, He has shaped my heart of compassion. A heart He alone has given me towards the suffering and hurting.  Through this personality type, I understand my calling. But I also understand and believe that It’s Christian to love the hurting and Christian to help the suffering. Knowing my personality type has helped me comprehend why I am the way I am, why I do the things I do, why I feel the way I feel. But as I walk along side Jesus, those things are stronger and He can do so much more through me, than “my personality” can. He adds the super, to my natural!

I can’t tell you how grateful I am, that I am an ISFJ because it enables me to relate to people I am privileged to encounter.  To love them and give every part of me that I can give. To understand them, bring out the best in them, in some cases. And to simply love, Uniquely. 

What’s your personality type?  What’s your significant others personality type? 

I guarantee, that knowing yours and the person or people you love and do life with, will significantly help you to understand them, and love them in action even more! It influences your thoughts and response towards others!
