Human

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.

we've been talking about evangelism in our Sunday School class and one of the things we have talked about a lot is how God doesn't expect us to convert people; He just expects us to obey him.

It is amazing how God uses the weak things of the world to shame the strong. And the foolish to shame the wise.

Which, I guess, means He should be able to use me! LOL

And yes...that's so true...God uses the foolish to confound the wise...amazing. 1 Cor. 1:27
