I’ve learned an important lesson.

In our walk with Christ, there are no credentials, milestones or checklists of things we need to achieve before God can use us to serve others. Over the past few years, I’ve been amazed when God has used me to help someone while simultaneously placing people in my life during a time that I needed someone to help me. God is so amazing, there are times that the way he connects me to another person answers both my prayers and their prayers at exactly the same time. God helping me and using me isn’t because of anything I’ve done. I was not and still am not living a perfect life. I had and still have sinful behaviors and habits that I need to address. I have gotten many things wrong and continue to make mistakes. Despite all of this, God helps me and blesses me with opportunities to participate in the work of His Kingdom.

I am not sharing this to boast. I am deeply grateful for the many people who have helped me, and the handful of people God has helped through me had nothing to do with me, my abilities, or anything special about me. I’m sharing this to encourage anyone who feels like you aren’t good enough for God, anyone who doubts that God could or even would use someone like you. Perhaps you don’t go to church or read the Bible as much as you should. Perhaps you are experiencing a drought in your faith and struggle with moments of doubt. Perhaps you believe God won’t forgive that sin you are still struggling with, the one you know is wrong but keep doing anyway. None of these things can stop God from completing the work he has started inside you.

No matter who you are or where you are in your life and in your faith, God loves you and God can use you to bring tremendous beauty and goodness into this broken world. You don’t have to be perfect. You don’t have to solve all of your problems. You don’t have to have it all figured out. God’s love and ability to use you does not depend on you or anything you could possibly do. It’s about what he can do, and he can do anything. Ask God to show you how He is working in you, through you, and around you. Ask God to show you how he is helping you. Ask him to reveal how he wants to use you to help others. I promise you will be amazed when he shows you a glimpse of your unique place in a plan that is bigger and more beautiful than anything we could possibly dream or imagine.
