“No Brothers and sisters, consider who you were when God called you to salvation. Not many of you were wise scholars by human standards, nor were many of you in positions of power. Not many of you were considered the elite when you answered God’s call. But God chose those whom the world considers foolish to shame those who think they are wise, and God chose the puny and powerless to shame the high and mighty. He chose the lowly, the laughable in the world’s eyes—nobodies—so that he would shame the somebodies. For he chose what is regarded as insignificant in order to supersede what is regarded as prominent, so that there would be no place for prideful boasting in God’s presence. For it is not from man that we draw our life but from God as we are being joined to Jesus, the Anointed One. And now he is our God-given wisdom, our virtue, our holiness, and our redemption. And this fulfills what is written: If anyone boasts, let him only boast in all that the Lord has done!” ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭1:26-31‬ ‭TPT‬‬

With permission, I share with you today the heart of a beautiful woman of God that I know reflects the beliefs of many others in the body of Christ. In a message, she opened up and her words were profound. If you’ve felt this way, hear me now: God saves those who know their need for a Savior, and He will then use whomever He chooses. Don’t believe the lies of the enemy. Those of you who struggle with mental illness are no less loved, chosen, or valuable in His Kingdom.

There is no limit to what a humble, struggling, dependent, faith filled mentally ill child of God who abides in Christ can do
