I’ve been reading When to Walk Away (Finding Freedom from Toxic People) by Gary Thomas. Lots of good stuff! I am learning so much! But there was a statement he made that rang true to me and has stuck with me.

Don’t worry about what you don’t yet have. Just give whatever God has given you.

I think all of us, no matter who we are, wonder from time to time if we are giving God all we can.  Or sometimes we feel somewhat incomplete is what we give or maybe unequal to the task. “If only I could do…” or “If only I had…” Next time you are hankering a pity party consider the saying above. I heard it once said, “God is not so much interested in your ability, as He is your availability.”

Be compelled to be His. Be compelled to Give it All.

    We often think God asks us to give what we don’t have, but the truth is, he always equips us to do whatever he asks us to do. Good thoughts, Bill.

  2. I like that quote, Bill, “God is not so much interested in your ability, as He is your availability.” Yes, God can use us right where we are with the gifts He has given us.
    Sunday’s sermon was excellent, by the way. I’m already looking forward to next week! 🙂

      Glad you liked the quote Martha. I heard it when I was in church camp as a Jr. High student. yeah…that long ago. Thanks for the compliment on the sermon.

  3. Good point, Bill. Thanx.

    I believe Moses was a little hesitant when asked to go to Egypt.

    God bless.

    It reminds me of a couple of quotes ” stop focusing on what you can’t do. Start focusing on what God can do through you.” “God’s work, done in God’s way, will never lack for God’s provisions”
    What we are really left with is, giving excuses to God as to why we can’t do his work, is pointless since all things can be accomplished through him. Philippians 4:13
