EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
God will fill you with wisdom, understanding, and knowledge to do the task He has called you to do. (Exodus 31:1-6)
Many of us can be afraid to step out in faith and serve our Lord. We can all be a leader wherever we are. You, me, and anyone willing to say “yes” to our Lord.
I’m here to tell you that the Lord doesn’t expect our steps to be perfect in what we try to accomplish for Him. He just expects us to be obedient, trust Him and take the first step and then allow Him to do the rest!
It’s not our perfect steps that the world is so desperately longing for my dear sisters of faith, it is beyond that. When it comes down to it the world isn’t impressed by supposedly perfect people who live in perfect houses with perfect children. Most people are moved by love…”genuine God-inspired” love.
Embrace a heart of compassion for mess-ups. Show others direction in God’s Word and share how you yourself were once crippled before Jesus came and rescued you. Be open. That’s what will move them and that’s what will give others great confidence. Be real about yourself.
I’m testifying to this each time I stand up to speak because I mess up. I’m not perfect, nor am I a perfect speaker or leader. I remember it and I’m reminded each time I get to share my broken past with others. Wow, how God has brought me closer to Him through it all! I get to testify of how great my life is now through being His servant.
People can’t relate to perfection but they can relate to being “real”. It encourages others to step out and try too!
How is God going to use you to build His Kingdom?
It takes courage my friend, and remember, God, is able to do exceedingly abundantly more than we can ask or think. (Eph. 3:20) Allow Him access and be willing to use your mess up’s for His messages, honestly, that’s how my writings began…
