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:
