Why Me Lord

You know, I was thinking. Back in the 70's (Russ that was the decade when all the good music was written) Kris Kristoferson wrote a song named why me Lord. The first verse of that song started "Why me Lord, what have I ever done to derserve even one of these blessings I know". This decribes my mood today. I do not know why the creator of the universe has selected me to be so incredibly blessed! Me, a person who at every possible opportunity has done his ever loving best to screw up his life! Me, a person so self centered and egotistical that I sometimes cannot see the forest for the tree! Me, a man who struggles on a daily basis with the flesh! Me, Doug Mollette! GOD LOVES ME! I don't understand it, I just accept it! The blessings that I am talking about are not anything tangible. I have a family both physically and in Christ whom I truly love and who truly love me. I am blessed beyond belief!
Right now there have been many people that have been brought to my attention who are hurting, struggling or being tempted. I feel so helpless sometimes to do anything that could help. As a guy it is in my nature to see a problem and want to fix it. There are somethings (well alright many things) that I just cannot fix. It is at that time that I have no choice but to let go and let God! This is sometimes very difficult, but it is the right thing to do. This doesn't imply that I sit back in the easy chair and wait for the Lord to work his majic. It means that I am actively asking, seeking and knocking (thanks for that last night Jim).
I guess what I am trying to get at this morning is that if God can use a person that has messed up so many times in his life that it can't be counted, then God can use anyone. Specifically God can use you! Just let him! Be blessed today.

You know if he used and he does at the right time, almost perfect people to help other people, things might not get to him, because some people will not come to almost perfect people. God uses us to do his work. Most people will go to churchey people to pray for the physical sickness, and things of that sort. But for people with spirital sickness, they want someone who can relate and understand, someone who has turned their life around. And that is where we come in, A SINNER SAVED BY GRACE. I think I can hear another song comming on. Love Sis

Sammy, no need to praise the hammer just because it is letting the master carpenter swing it. Give all of the praise and honor to the Master Carpenter! BBT

You really do have a way w/ words~ thanks for challenging and blessing me yet again today :)

Matthew 10:29-31: Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.
