The message below was sent to me a week or so ago. I was, like many of you have been lately, very depressed. My best freind died and several other things, you know it does catch up with us. This helped me get better so I want to share it you in hopes it helps someone. We are all in this world together. Carla Caffey read this on the chit chat board and requested that I post it here. The next time you feel like GOD can't use you, just remember ... Noah was a drunk Abraham was too old Isaac was a daydreamer Jacob was a liar Leah was ugly Joseph was abused Moses had a stuttering problem Gideon was afraid Samson had long hair and was a womanizer Rahab was a prostitute Jeremiah and Timothy were too young David had an affair and was a murderer Elijah was suicidal Isaiah preached naked Jonah ran from God Naomi was a widow Job went bankrupt Peter denied Christ The Disciples fell asleep while praying Martha worried about everything Mary Magdalene was ... The Samaritan woman was divorced, more than once Zaccheus was too small Paul was too religious Timothy had an ulcer ... AND Lazarus was dead! Now! No more excuses! God can use you to your full potential. Besides you aren't the message, you are just the messenger. And one more thing ... Share this with a friend or two ... In the Circle of God's love, God's waiting to use your full potential. 1. God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts. 2. Dear God, I have a problem, it's Me. 3. Growing old is inevitable ... growing UP is optional. 4. There is no key to happiness. The door is always open. 5. Silence is often misinterpreted but never misquoted. 6. Do the math ... count your blessings. 7. Faith is the ability to not panic. 8. Laugh every day, it's like inner jogging. 9. If you worry, you didn't pray . If you pray, don't worry. 10. As a child of God, prayer is kind of like calling home everyday. 11. Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be bent out of shape. 12. The most important things in your house are the people. 13 When we get tangled up in our problems, be still. God wants us to be still so He can untangle the knot. 14. A grudge is a heavy thing to carry. 15 He who dies with the most toys is still dead.
