1 Thessalonians 2:2 You know how badly were had been treated in Philippi just before we came to you and how much we suffered. Yet our God gave us the courage to declare his Good News to you boldly, in spire of great opposition.
I love this... it says to me... "No matter what happened to you in the past, God is with you Jeannie. God will give you the courage to do what He ask you to do." It does not matter who I was. It does not matter how shy I may have been in the past. It does not matter if I have never done something before. If God ask me to, he will make me able. Sometimes God ask us and then makes us able. Sometimes God makes us able because He is about to ask us.
I am ready to do what you ask me to do, your words tells me that YOU will make me able. I do not have to depend on me, I should never look to me and my abilities...I should always look to you, you who can make us able to do anything! Thank you God for caring about me.
In Jesus precious name,
