i am what i am

A lot of times I do not feel like I deserve to be where I am in life.

because of my......past
because of my......age
because of my......mistakes
because of my......failures
because of my......weaknesses
because of my.....inexperience
because of my.....sin
because of my.....doubts
because of my.....insecurities
Paul talks about not deserving to be an apostle in 1 Corinthians 15:10 and has spoken to me in a very personal way
"by the grace of God, I am what I am and His grace will not be void, because I worked harder than all of them; not I but the grace of God with me."
you may not deserve to be where you are - influentially, financially, relationally, etc.... but by God's grace you are what you are.
