Light obeyed increaseth light, Light rejected bringeth night,
Who shall give me power to choose, If the love of light I lose?

 

Prescribed by the Great Physician

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 ;Rehab 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 ;Peter denied Christ (3 times!) ;The Disciples fell asleep while praying ;Martha worried about everything; Mary Magdalene was the Samaritan woman who was divorced, more than once...Zaccheus was too small Paul was too religious ;Timothy had an ulcer... And Lazarus was dead!


Now, no more excuses! God can use you to your full potential. Besides, you aren't the message, you are just the messenger.
