In looking at blogs that I follow, I came across something that I find very interesting. It is something I think we all need to hear and realize. That being said, this is what I found. You cna find the post here that I took it from.

The next time you feel like God can’t use you, just remember . . . .

No more excuses now. God can use you to your full potential. Besides, you aren’t the message, you are just the messenger.
God wants to use each and everyone of us, no matter what. We all go through things in our lives and we all have things that we are ashamed of. The thing is, we can not let that hold us back for seeking God, asking for forgivenss, and allowing Him to work through us in whatever way He deems right for us. We have so much potential, you have so much potential. Don’t let it stay hidden, let it out.
