HE is able!

"There are many reasons God shouldn't use us. Yet we're in good company.
Noah got drunk.
Abraham lied about his wife.
Jacob was a swindler.
Moses stuttered.
He also had a short fuse.
Miriam was a gossip.
Gideon put God to the test.
Naomi was a widow.

Sarah was too old.
David was too young.
David committed adultery.
Solomon had a bunch of wives.

Elijah got burnt out.

Hosea married a prostitute.
Jonah ran away from God.
Jeremiah got depressed.
The woman at the well had been dumped by five husbands.
Martha was too busy.
Lazarus was dead.

Thomas doubted.
Peter was afraid of death.
John Mark was rejected by the apostle Paul.
Timothy had stomach problems.
Moses was a murderer.
So was David.
So was Paul. "

- Written by Sandra Glahn "Espresso with Esther"

So, now, what is MY excuse?!
And, what is yours?

Oh, wow.... thanks for posting that. I think I'll go back and read it again.

Sadly, it is so encouraging to see their faults, too. :-) Makes me think that maybe, just maybe, he can use me.
