Not a Disqualification

Despite having grown up in church, and having loved Jesus from a very young age, there are still parts of the Bible that baffle me and that I haven't actually been able to courageously apply to my own life yet.

One of the things that I seem unable to fully wrap my head around is the idea that God works through and uses our weaknesses.

I can see it in others but for some reason, knowing myself as fully as I do, I doubt that it's the same for me.

If you ask me to do something, I'll probably give you a list of reasons why I'm the wrong person for the job.

I am still working on moving my confidences from myself to God, I guess.

I was encouraged and blessed by this quote that I read in Sunday's bulletin:

"What keeps us from being heroes of the faith, besides our fear of having to give up things that we like for a season or some of our personal dreams--and the remote possibility that we might be killed? Usually it is the belief that we don't have what it takes to do anything of significance for God. That is not a diqualification, however, but a sign that we just might be useable." Steve Saint
