As the worship's going, I'm crying and apologizing to God for having so many fears and weaknesses, telling him how I don't know how he could ever use me and actually accomplish the dreams he put in my heart. And that's when he interrupted my thoughts: "Do it afraid..My gracious favor is all you need. My power works best in your weakness." I've heard this a bazillion times before by pastors, but I needed that reminder again tonight. And I wanted to share this because I know there are other people that struggle with this stuff as well.
You may think you're a failure or a loser because you have too many weaknesses, fears, and struggles. But God can use you anyway. Heck, he can probably do even more with you BECAUSE of all your weaknesses since then he gets a chance to show off THROUGH you. Being afraid doesn't make you a failure. Completely giving up does. So do it afraid. God's got you :-)
