Once St. Francis of Assisi, was asked, ‘Why you Francis? Why you? Why did God choose you as a lighthouse to bless this world?’
Francis smiled and said, ‘I will tell you why me. Because there could hardly have been anyone who has made as many mistakes as I have. I have done and been anything you can think of that is abhorrent or unholy. I had absolutely nothing to offer the world. That is precisely why God chose to use me; to give hope to people who feel they have nothing to give. So if the Holy Spirit can work through me, then the Holy Spirit can work through anyone.’
I would say to you, your history doesn’t define you. Your willingness to be of service to God does.
