Can I Do It?

Ever feel like a misfit? God can still use you. Each of us carry our own baggage of something that fills us with doubt. I know for myself….I’ve felt many times like my usefulness to God was limited. Because of me, not anyone else. I think satan enjoys dangling that carrot of confusion in the face of Christians. Many never step out and live their faith best because of the weaknesses satan continuously brings to mind.

If you need a little encouragement….read on!

Abraham was old, Jacob was insecure, Leah was unattractive, Joseph was abused, Moses stuttered, Gideon was poor, Samson was codependent, Rahab was immoral, David had an affair and all kinds of family problems, Elijah was suicidal, Jeremiah was depressed, Jonah was reluctant, Naomi was a widow, John the Baptist was eccentric to say the least, Peter was impulsive and hot-tempered, Martha worried a lot, the Samaritan woman had several failed marriages, Zachaeus was unpopular, Thomas had doubts, Paul had poor health and Timothy was timid!

Need more?

Noah got drunk, Zachaeus was short, Miriam was a gossip, Sarah was impatient, Jonah ran from God, Peter denied Christ and Lazarus was dead!

It really doesn’t matter what your shortcomings are….GOD STILL WANTS TO USE YOU!!

And me!

It’s January 25th and I’m already behind on some important (TO ME) goals that I had committed to. They’ve been hanging over me with a neon failure sign blinking brightly! I imagine I’m not the only one who does this, right? After reading that excerpt above from Pastor Rick Warren, I felt encouraged to get back up and try again! Maybe it will do the same for you!!

Pick up & start again. There is no flaw big enough to stop you!
