God wants to use me?

This poster spoke to me today…

When the world treated me like trash, and the enemy trampled on me – I thought that was what happened to people like me.

When people hurt, used, and abused me – I thought I was worthless.  I thought I  didn’t matter.

When my ex told me the world would be better off without me – I believed him.

When the voices in my head told me to hurt myself – I listened.


I was deceived, by people who were supposed to love me.

This poster reminds me that God can use anyone, and that somehow, someway, something good will come out of all that pain.


The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows). (John 10:10 AMP)


Dear Lord,

Give us new vision today.  Help us see ourselves through Your eyes; not through our own past experiences, or someone else.  Help us receive the value that You have towards us; even if we haven’t seen it from those who should have planted it.  Tear down the lies that we have believed about ourselves.   We are weary of the destruction, we come to You for peace,  in Jesus’ Name.

  1. We all are God’s instruments, it’s just a matter of being aware of it. But sometimes it’s hard when we are hurting. God say, pray for those who prosecute you. The power of prayer always works just like your prayer to us. Perpetua.

  2. I guess what I meant is that I have had doubts about God in my past. I wasn’t raised in church like some. I guess I knew there was a God, but I didn’t think He cared about me. I don’t like “religion” either, it did not help me. But I do like Jesus, He has helped me see things differently.

  3. I don’t know if you’re a christian but if you are than this is a very brave post of yours. I myself have my doubts about the existence of god but I sure liked this post.

      1. Do you mind explaining what you mean with “been there” because I have never been a religious man nor will I ever be (probably) I just find it to be ignorant to just close your mind to the possibility of a god. ( not implying that you do that )
