Make your self available


Everyone can be used by God, it's so often we think naw, not me!
But yes my sister and brother you can be...and probably already are and don't realize it...

When we are full of Christ you are totally useable... he washes us clean!
You are valued, you are loved, you are useable, you are safe...

List of small ways you can be used in your already daily walk you might not think of:

friending the person next to you in Bible study
taking your neighbor a meal
waving at a stranger on the road
pushing the cart back to the cart station
encouraging your kids to have christ like character
speak to the cashier before they do
friending your coworker
praying for your childs teacher
leave an encouraging note on the bathroom mirror
send a hand written letter to someone
turn someone trash can over for them
pick up a piece a trash
push your chair back in at a restaurant
look to those around you young and old

Be intentional!

2 Timothy 2:20-21(NIV)

20 In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for special purposes and some for common use. 21 Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.

Serving the Lord is not an optional... Ephesians 2:10

Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)

10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Bottom line is everyone must lift a finger...

Serve...

Think back to your spiritual gifts...master which your number one is and the top few your strong in. Be reminded everyone has a spiritual gift and these gifts come from our experiences in life. And can change over time.

Biblical personalities used by God:
Jacob was a cheater,
Peter had a temper,
David had an affair,
Noah got drunk.
Jonah ran from God,
Paul was a murderer,
Gideon was insecure,
Miriam was a gossiper,
Martha was a worrier,
Thomas was a doubter,
Sara was impatient,
Elijah was moody,
Moses stuttered,
Zacheus was too short,
Abraham was old and
Lazarus was dead.

It is said, "God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called"!

Holiness is never seen as a human quality rather an expression of a truly unique relationship with God!
It's a two way deal...like any other relationship!

How we spend our time reveals our precious HEARTS true desire!

Our face simply reveals everything from pride to depression or it will pour forth the fruits of the spirit: peace, joy, love, patience, gentleness, goodness, self-control, faithfulness, and kindness.

Have a good day!
