But Lord, I am not eloquent 

It’s Sunday night and I’m finishing my journaling. Today was a day that God was flourishing and present in every way during worship at our service. It was amazing. Then I am reading in exodus about Moses and the burning bush. Whoa. Couldn’t imagine that! However, I can relate to Moses arguing with God about why he isn’t going to be able to represent the Lord. Satan loves to attack us, especially when we have been given a task. 
Some days I am utterly beaten down and have to verbally speak the words for Satan to stop attacking my mind and dragging me down. 
When God gives you a task, there is a reason. A seed to be planted, a heart to be lifted, a soul to be saved- not because of you but, perhaps, God can use you because He chooses to. Not to make you any better, but to make you more humble. We aren’t worthy of being used to glorify the kingdom, but for some reason, God wants to use us. He loves us. God met me right where I needed to be tonight, in the conversation of Moses and God. Here is my verse: 
Exodus 4:10 New Living Translation (NLT)
10 But Moses pleaded with the Lord, “O Lord, I’m not very good with words. I never have been, and I’m not now, even though you have spoken to me. I get tongue-tied, and my words get tangled.”
When you read this passage, if you’re like me, you’ll be astonished at the patience of God with Moses. 
Happy Sunday friends. I pray you are encouraged with these words.
