Ain’t About Me

Sitting here I am thinking about yesterday’s message and begin to feel unqualified to preach. I fumble over my words regularly and have trouble pronouncing words I know. For example I had trouble with the word phenomenon…for the life of me I could not pronounce it, yet I sat on the edge of my bed this morning and said phenomenon, phenomenon, phenomenon with no trouble. I mentioned the year 2016 but said the year 26 instead. Oh brother! Who wants to listen to that kind of thing, I think to myself. Then I remember what the apostle Paul said ” I did not come to you with excellence of speech or of wisdom when I declared to you the testimony of God” and about the same time the Holy Spirit whispered, ” God uses the the foolish things of the world remember?” OK pity party over. It’s not about me anyway. Thanks for being there, Lord!
