Epic Fail? Not!
Do you think that describes you? Has your church family made you feel like that? Do you think God can’t use you?
God can use YOU! Scripture shows that God can use
anybody – God can use me, God can use you! God can use bad for good, God
can use someone like you!

2 Corinthians 12:9, NLT My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.
1 Peter 4:10, NIV Each of you should use whatever gift
you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace
in its various forms.
God doesn’t call the equipped, he equips the called.
It’s not about our ability, It’s about our availability!
Seek to be a real and authentic person who does not judge or pretend to have it all together, but admits simply to be an imperfect person who has tasted God's love and mercy, and is trying to live everyday in gratitude of it.
Be that person and God will use you, because that is exactly the kind of people God has used through out history.
