I am Useful

Do You Think God Can’t Use You?

“…he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified, useful to the Master, prepared for every good work.” ~ 2 Timothy 2:21, NASB

I don’t know who to credit this to, but I had to post it. I hope the original author will forgive me–I certainly didn’t write it. I was at my local Bible bookstore and saw it on a tee-shirt and, well, frankly, it made me tear up. Useful? Me? I’m just a simple housewife in the middle of no-where, Nebraska. Useful. He says so.

God is so good, isn’t he?

Do you seriously think God can’t use you?
