That’s me. Unqualified. I shouldn’t be writing. That’s for the pro’s. Those with fancy literary degrees. Intellectuals. Or those with natural writing talent, which I don’t have. I am a regular person. Ordinary. I had no writing dreams, until now.

God has placed a dream inside of me to reach people through writing. His people. Kids and grown ups. To tell them there is hope. Some know Him and some don’t yet. So I will write His words to share the message of the hope found in Christ.

God likes to use the unqualified to shine His light. He gets the glory. For me to write, I need Him. I cannot accomplish it on my own ability. With Him, I truly can do all things. All of us are unqualified on our own to do what God has called us to do. The God sized tasks require God.

Willingness is also required. He is looking for those who will go for it and do what He asks, in spite of not being fit for the job. The obedient. Those who say “Yes Lord, I’ll do it”. That’s where He meets you. At the point of your own inability is where He shows up and does remarkable things.

I pray you are encouraged to be used by God, even if  you and I are unqualified. We are the kind of people He’s looking for. He wants to use you. Will you let Him? I know it’s scary. I’m still scared, but I will keep stepping out in faith as he leads me to write. Go for it! Take the first step.

1  Corinthians 1:28-29 “He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things – and the things that are not – to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him” (NIV).

Love you all,

  1. I am encouraged by your obedience despite being “unqualified.” Just as He used the unqualified Moses to lead His people out of slavery, so He uses you! Thank you for sharing yourself and your heart. I am blessed, and I know others are or will be too.

  2. Meghan you are nothing short of amazing. You homeschool, cook from scratch, teach classes, take time to encourage others and why not add even more, like writing a book and blog, just because! God created us. He put every single thing inside us that we would ever need to become all He created us to be in the first place. You may feel unworthy of a calling to write or think it’s “not in you” BUT God knows everything about you. He put it there and now you are in the place and time that He has been lovingly leading you to so you can begin. He is always growing us, stretching us, teaching us. Why? So we can struggle? No. So we can see we can do so much more and be so much more than we ever realized because of Him. Thank you for being such an example of obedience despite how it all felt. All we have to do is say, I’m willing, and He’ll take it from there. You are a beautiful example of this. I love you and am so proud of you! I’m so blessed and honored to have you in my life.

    1. Wow!! Thank you Kelly! Do you want to be my manager? 🙂 Its all God. He keeps leading me and I keep following, even when I can’t clearly see where its all going. I am doing the best I can with His strength, to do what He has asked of me. I am here for Him. I feel privileged to be a small part of what He’s doing. I love you too and I’m very proud of you and all that you do to love on and take care of your beautiful kids! You are awesome!
