Sunday Inspirations: God Can Use You

Sojourner's Place created a weekly meme to help us share our spirituality with one anothers. Often, I feel that I am not worthy of God's love. I have been a very imperfect vessel during my years on earth. However, I have learned through The Word that all of us are worthy. God demonstrates that he can use each and every one of us in his Kingdom. Villagers, The Next Time You Feel Like God Can't Use You, Just Remember:

Isn't it amazing how God uses us even with our imperfections to be a beacon for others? Sometimes it just makes me shiver because you know it just not a know that its GOD. And when that happens, you also know that God loves you unconditionally even with our imperfections! Amen!
