    Well, if the LORD can use an ass, then I guess he can use me!

    Num 22:27 And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she fell down under Balaam: and Balaam's anger was kindled, and he smote the ass with a staff.
    Num 22:28 And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?
    Num 22:29 And Balaam said unto the ass, Because thou hast mocked me: I would there were a sword in mine hand, for now would I kill thee.
    Num 22:30 And the ass said unto Balaam, Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day? was I ever wont to do so unto thee? And he said, Nay.

    This is great! When we are at our weakest, God can use us to our fullest!
    Why are you searching for love? Why are you still looking as if I'm not enough?

    The bible shows human beings as they are...sinners, in need of salvation.

    We can sometimes feel so unworthy, but we must remember that we are sinners saved by grace.

    Praise be to Jesus!
    Jesus Christ....who do you say He is?

    Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1
