No more excuses!

Another email that I thought was really neat...

The next time you feel like GOD can't use you, just remember...

Noah was a drunk
Abraham was too old
Isaac was a daydreamer
Jacob was a liar
Leah was ugly
Joseph was abused
Moses had a stuttering problem
Gideon was afraid
Samson had long hair and was a womanizer.

Rahab was a prostitute
Jeremiah and Timothy were too young
David had an affair and was a murderer
Elijah was suicidal
Isaiah preached naked
Jonah ran from God
Naomi was a widow
Job went bankrupt
John the Baptist ate bugs
Peter denied Christ
The Disciples fell asleep while praying
Martha worried about everything
The Samaritan woman was divorced,
more than once.

Zaccheus was too small
Paul was too religious
Timothy had an ulcer...AND
Lazarus was dead!
..no more excuses now.

God can use you to your full potential.

Besides you aren't the message, you are just the messenger.

Just a friendly reminder that no matter what mistakes we made, what imperfections and flaws we feel we have - regardless of all these things...God is still able and still desires to use us to further His kingdom! What an awesome God we serve!
