All throughout our lives we give ourselves reasons to why we can’t do things. When we get really honest with ourselves, most of these reasons are actually insecurities, creeping in to break us down.
1) “I’m not tall enough”
2) “I’m not smart enough”
3) “I’m not fast enough”
4) “I’m not old enough”

As a Christian, I believe some of the easiest traps for me to fall into are the ones I have personally set for myself.

Even when I try to take a moment and pray for the people affected, all I can think about is:
All throughout scripture, we see Jesus using broken people to share Hope to a broken world. He didn’t use the popular, rich or successful, but rather the, poor, broken and faithful.
It doesn’t matter where you’ve been, what you’ve done, or who you use to be. God can use all people for the good of His will.
