Or we think, After I get my life together, once I get perfect, then God will use me. Good luck with that!
That's not the way God works. Look through the Bible--God uses imperfect, broken, hurting people everywhere. Being broken and hurting and imperfect is the human condition. It's what being human means in a fallen world. Who else is God going to use?
And from page 130:
If becoming the real you depends so much on your thoughts, how could your life be different if you thought differently?
...What if you saw yourself as forgiven and free, a servant of God on a mission every day?
...What would happen if you opened your eyes to what you can do for God, not what you can't?
