Do you think your past, your personality or problems disqualify you from being used by God? Well, you shouldn’t.  God’s love is perfect. His love covers every sin. He has the power to help you overcome any weakness you have. There is nothing you did yesterday, today or will do tomorrow that He can’t forgive. He uses all kinds of people, from all walks of life, with all kinds of issues.    

For instance: Moses killed a man, King David committed adultery, Miriam was a gossip, Jacob was a liar, Rahab was a prostitute, Jeremiah was depressed and suicidal, Sarah laughed at God’s promises, Peter denied Christ, Paul condoned the killing of Stephen, Jonah defiantly ran away from God, Samson chose a prostitute over God, and the list goes on.

There is nothing that disqualifies you from the love and grace of God. Let Him take you and help you from this day on. Get a clean slate from Him and fulfill your life’s purpose!
