“The leaders God chooses are often more broken than strong…more damaged than whole…more troubled than secure. God’s greatest leaders do not rise up from a bed of roses; they rise from beds of nails.” —Scott Sauls
Abraham, Moses, Jacob, Deborah, Gideon, Ehud, Joshua, David, Elijah, Peter, Paul, you.
There. Your excuses just evaporated.
Go give ’em Heaven.
“Jacob was a manipulator, Peter was impulsive, John had a temper, David had an affair, Noah got drunk, Jonah ran from God, Paul was a murderer, Gideon was insecure, Miriam was a gossip, Martha was a worrier, Thomas was a doubter, Sarah was impatient, Elijah was afraid, Jeremiah was depressed, Moses stuttered, Zacchaeus was short, Abraham was old, Lazarus was dead… God does not call the qualified—He qualifies the called.” —Unknown
What can’t God do through you today? It’s not about your qualifications, it’s about His—and He chose you. On Purpose.
Have a mighty day.
“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And that which I can do, by the grace of God, I will do.” —D.L. Moody
There’s your day. Blessings.
One of my great discoveries in life was when I spent my day making life better for someone else, it was always a good day—and when I spent my day trying to make life better for me, I went to bed wondering if I’d really accomplished anything valuable at all. We were made for God, and it seems He made us for others.
Lord, help me live from day to day
In such a self-forgetful way
That even when I kneel to pray,
My prayer shall be for others.
Help me in all the things I do,
To ever be sincerely true,
And know that all I do for you
Must needs be done for others.
Others, Lord, yes others,
Let this, my motto be;
Help me to live for others,
That I might live for thee.
Discover a great day.
