No Excuses for God

God, grant me the Serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the Courage to change the one I can, and the Wisdom to know . . . it's me.

The next time you feel like GOD can't use you, just remember . . . 

Noah was a drunk

Abraham and Sarah were too old to have children

Isaac was a daydreamer

Jacob was a liar

Leah was considered old and ugly

Young Joseph was abused by his own brothers

Moses had a real stuttering problem

Gideon was afraid of everything

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 and hid from God

Naomi was a widow

Job went bankrupt

John the Baptist ate bugs

Peter denied Christ

The Disciples fell asleep while praying

Martha worried and obsessed about everything

The Samaritan woman was divorced, several times

Zaccheus was really short

Paul was overly religious and aggravated most people

Timothy had a bad ulcer

Ester was an orphan . . . and

Lazarus was dead!

No more excuses, okay?  In the circle of God's love, He is waiting to use your full potential.

Points to Ponder:

1. God wants spiritual fruit, no 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

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 every day.

11. Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be bent out of shape.

12. The most important thing in your house are the people.

13. When we get tangled up in our problems, be still.

14. A grudge is a heavy thing to carry.

15. He who dies with the most toys is still dead.
