Good enough!

Recently I was asked if I would sing at a church and I said, “No, I’m not really that good.” (And that’s the truth, I’m not – I can carry a tune, but that’s about it.) Later, I felt guilty (I do guilt well!) It was a small church and I could have sung and praised God with my singing. It wasn’t like I was performing in Madison Square Gardens or something…

Looking back on that, I thought of the statement that the greatest ability is availability. (not sure who said that, but have heard it lots of times).

God wants to use each of us, but sometimes we hold back because we’re afraid that we won’t do it good enough. You know the excuses – I’m not gifted in that area. I can’t do it as well as she can. On and on…

I’ve learned that if I do what I can, it may not be the best in the world, but God can use it. And I can learn to do it better. Almost every new thing I do is done poorly when I first start doing it, but that’s how I learn – the more I do it, the better I get. It takes time and practice.

Does that mean we shouldn’t do our best? Of course, we should, but sometimes good enough works, too.
