“I’ll never tell anyone that.”
“I’m so embarrassed. If anyone ever found out, I’d die.”
“I’m such a screw up. God can never use me.”
“No one will take me seriously because of [insert reason here].”
“They’ll think I’m a hypocrite if I talk about [insert flawed past here]. I’ve made such a mess of my life, how will anyone listen to what I have to share?”
We all have so many reasons why we shouldn’t be handing out life advice. I know I do! I have lots of reasons why I think I should keep my mouth shut.
I am a miserable failure at so much. Yes, sometimes I get it right, but so often…more of the time…I get it wrong. And I feel like, “what do I possibly have to share with others? How can I possibly speak to what God wants for us when I have made so many mistakes myself?”
Do you ever feel that way?
