The Clanking of a Flag Pole

God desires to use each and every one of His children.  He is not looking for eloquent speakers and theologians, just willing people.  All throughout the Scriptures we see the imperfect people God used. Moses had a speech impediment, Rehab was a prostitute, David lusted after another man's wife, Naomi was widowed, Thomas doubted, the list goes on and on.

God is simply looking for people who are willing to say "yes God, use me."  Are you willing?  Are you ready to say yes to God this week?  Ready to say yes before you even know what He requires of you?

Are you a person that says yes to God?

Counting my blessings for 2012:

  1. God certainly knows how to use one person to get the attention of another. God is a mighty God. You also have a wonderful list of things you are so thankful for. Things that some may think and wonder why you are thankful for but it is a wonderful list. Thank you.

    Blessings to you and love you.

  5. I love posts like this one! I saw a video once that listed all of the 'imperfect' people in the Bible and how God used them. It is a great reminder. Even though *we* think of them as these larger than life characters, they were in reality REAL people with REAL doubts and REAL insecurities.


Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts, I love hearing from you.
