One night I fell asleep with the television on. I woke up to a movie Kingsman: The Secret Service, as I am watching the plot unfold, I began to notice something about the main character. He wasn't well put together, as a matter of fact, he was a hot mess! He was angry, detached and participating in criminal acts. Yet, one of the men that was a part of the "Secret Service", noticed something special about him, he had heart. He wasn't fearful, he had skills that he hadn't even properly used. He just needed someone to believe in him.
Sound familiar, for me it does! I was a HOT MESS, when I answered "the call" (which could be a new business, ministry etc) on my life. I still couldn't believe that I was hand selected by God (Jeremiah 1:5) but I was, hand picked and chosen for a special mission. Once I realized that "ALL" things work together, ALL things means the good, the bad and the ugly. Once I got over the shock that God loved all my imperfect places, I finally realized that I could be "used".
I'm praying today that you realize your usefulness, that you have been hand selected for a special purpose by God, He sees you useful, even your imperfect places.
