No More Excuses

  • 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
  • Mary Magdalene was, well you know
  • 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.

Be encouraged.

Good one! I've used this same one many times to encourage our church...and even me, when I forget that God uses imperfect people - so I have no excuses! Good stuff! Always enjoy reading your posts!
