In Good Company

A whole slew of emotions rushed through me when I heard the news. I was given an opportunity to travel to Singapore to immense myself in a vibrant culture and to be part of the YMI team. I am not the most proficient writer, I am not the best researcher, and I am not even the most refined editor. Yet, I was
offered the opportunity to write and produce content for youth through YMI.

I was excited at the prospect; I was thankful for the new experience; and I was perplexed as to why I was chosen for this task. Surely there were many others more qualified and experienced than I.

But I was promptly reminded that many men and women in the Holy Scriptures were insufficient for the position God had called them to fill. In fact many of them had shortcomings and sins that should have, in human terms, kept them from accomplishing the plan God had for their lives. If you think about it, Noah was a drunk (Genesis 9:21), Samson was a womanizer (Judges 16), David was an adulterer and murderer (2 Samuel 11), and Peter denied Jesus three times (Matthew 26:34).

So the next time you feel incapable for the task God has called you to do, remember: God does not call the qualified; He qualifies the called.

[God] said, “My grace is all you need.
My power works best in weakness.”
So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses,
so that the power of Christ can work through me. — 2 Corinthians 12:9
