He Can Use Anyone

cross with thorns

Helen Keller, who is a classic example of handling life’s handicaps, said, “I thank God for my handicaps, for through them I have found myself, my work, and my God.” Some people with handicaps drown themselves in self-pity, and thus limit their usefulness and service to mankind and to God. The Apostle Paul knew the pangs of suffering. He used his infirmity rather than allowing his infirmity to use him, and he used it for the glory of God. He seized everything, even death, to glorify his Lord. No matter which way fate turned, he was one jump ahead of it, and using it to magnify his Savior.

Prayer for the day

Even my handicaps can be used by You, Lord Jesus. Like the Apostle Paul, let me rise above them for Your glory.

    I have Parkinson’s Disease. This is a great reminder and comfort to me. “I will glory in my infirmities for Christ’s sake.” I do let let it define me!

    I was teacher for thirty years. I have become ill with an auto immune disease that has caused me to be disabaled. to the point of not being able to walk on my own. Other things have been affected. I want to wok again. I think I have more to offer. I love being around people. I feel like I should be doing more with my life. I don’t know how to get a job or what to do. Do you have suggestions. I don’t dreive anymore. Is there a place to help us know what we can do? I want to do what God would have me to do.

    I struggle with hearing loss, have most of my life. I guess it is time for me to stop letting it be used against me and letting it be used for me and for God’s will.

    Lord give strenth to do ur works and your will. what can seperate us from the love of christ?…is it peril,suffering,hardship,sickness etc but in all this we are more than victorious. Never loose hope on God because those that put their trust in God shall be like mountain zion that can not be moved but abideth for ever.
