Who I am

I know a lot of my failings, and there are many more that others can see in me or that God can see that I don’t recognise yet. They will be shown to me at the right time, or at Gods timing for my life. It amazes me that He uses me with all my failings, warts, sins and all. God loves me and uses me for His kingdom as I am right now, and not who I will be 10 years from now, because who I will be then will be a different person. I know I am on a journey, but if I stop learning and growing in God, then I won’t be any different, but will stand still. To be different, I have to grow, learn and change my attitudes and heart to be more like God, then I will change into a more Christ-like child of God.
When I look in the Old Testament at some of the old “heroes” of the faith like Samson, Solomon and perhaps David, they were never super spiritual. God used them as they were for His kingdom and His purposes. They didn’t change for God to use them, they didn’t change who they were in God. We have consequences of living a sinful life, but God made us because He loves us.
We need to pray and ask God what He wants us to do for Him; who He wants us to speak to; how He wants us to live for Him; how we follow Him.

    I too am amazed that the Lord uses me with all my faults as well; but the Lord works through his people; even with all our imperfections. Thank you Jesus that you paid for all that sin with your life so the Father sees me through You.
    Great post today!

      thank you for your lovely message. I live amazed by my Lord, and who He puts in my life to encourage me. I hope I can in some way encourage you in return. Bless you in Christ.

        My ministry is to encourage those around me into a more trusting, deeper relationship with Jesus because apart from that there is no hope. My story has been told and is froth with many struggles. So, I have been through the fire and have not given up. I have tasted of the Lord and found Him good. So I try and tell everyone that I can about How God is tremendously abounding in love and mercy. I hope that we can encourage each other in our callings so that all would know that Jesus is Lord.

    It is very humbling that God loves & ministers through us “as is.” http://thevoiceofone.org/2014/01/20/me-and-the-terrible-horrible-no-good-very-bad-day/
