Just when I get discouraged about my faults, mistakes or character flaws and think "How, Lord, are you going to use ME in the ministry?" The answer comes to me like a wave of obvious truth.
"Because you're human. Just like everyone else."
Those faults, mistakes and character flaws are EXACTLY what God is going to use to let me reach real people for Him. When others see His work of grace in my life...my imperfect and scarred life...they will see that I'm real and that God's grace can work in their lives, just like it has in my own.
I'm thankful for my imperfections. I'm thankful for my flaws. I'm thankful that I'm human.
I'm thankful for God's grace.
