no more excuses

The next time you think you have an

      excuse why God can’t use you,

     remember the following people:


             Noah was drunk,


          Abraham was too old,


         Isaac was a daydreamer,


            Jacob was a liar,


             Leah was ugly,


           Joseph was abused,


  Moses was a murderer (like David and



          Deborah was a woman,


           Gideon was afraid,


          Samson had long hair,


         Rahab was a prostitute,


  Jeremiah and Timothy were too young,


    David pretended to be mad, had an


     and ran away from his own son,


          Elijah was suicidal,


         Isaiah preached naked,


        Jonah ran away from God,


           Naomi was a widow,


            Job was bankrupt,


      John the Baptist ate locusts,


  Peter was impulsive and hot-tempered,


        John was self-righteous,


     the disciples fell asleep while



    Martha worried about everything,


   Mary was so Jesus minded she was no

              earthly good,


   Mary Magdalene was demon-possessed,


 the boy with the fish and five rolls of

  bread was too unknown (and still is),


 the Samaritan woman was divorced – more

               than once,


        Zacchaeus was too small,


         Paul was too religious,


    Timothy had a stomach ulcer, and


            Lazarus was dead.


            No more excuses!
