God Override My Humanity

More times than not I simply don’t feel comfortable in my own skin. My body feels weak and my mind is so limited. No matter how strong I try to be my strength is never enough. No matter how much I study I’m never smart enough. No matter how hard I try I always fall short.

Especially as a pastor I often feel unqualified. Who am I to lead so many others to God? Who am I to be an example of what it means to follow Christ? Who am I to preach God’s word? Often I just pray that I don’t get in God’s way. 

God has to remind me often it’s just not about me. The power of God is not dependent upon me. The people of God are not dependent on me. My calling is to let God be God in my life. To surrender everything and allow God to override my humanity.

“It is not that we think we are qualified to do anything on our own. Our qualification comes from God.” (2 Corinthians 3:5)

  1. You’re truly an honest and humble servant of His! Shhh…don’t tell anyone, or talk about it! I agree with you! Some of the smarter types, even the stronger ones, etc. are going to find it out the Bible way! Hug Aimee for me…and for Carlene, and buy your fellows either a shake or hamburger!
