    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

    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 ...
    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

    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.

    I was beginning to think I had offended someone because no one was responding. I know many on this board have been very depressed latey.

    It is not just the board either. A Dr's wife in my small town shot herself last week, it stated she suffered from medical and emotional problems.

    I will copy and paste it on the prayer boad-Thanks-Carla

    I love meditating on Jesus's message. (which IS about love)

    Thank you for posting this, I found it funny, profound and brilliant. It is one of the very few inspirational messages I plan to not only print out, but pass on in emails (and I hate those forwarded platitudes!)

    Thanks again, it lifted my day.
