Shooting Straight With A Crooked Stick

It amazes me how God chooses to still use me in spite of my sinfulness. Somehow, He prepares the way before me. I flounder into that way, often unaware of His guiding hand. He brings circumstances or individuals along the way who are precisely in need of what He has placed upon my heart. He urges me to speak or act, and then rewards me as if I deserved the honor of His blessing for having been obedient. In reality, I am the one most blessed because my intention was not [necessarily] focused upon ministering at all. I had not prepared myself for service. I had not been faithful in prayer. Somehow, He chooses to shoot straight with a crooked stick; amazing! And God always is right on target!
