God calls the unlikely ones.

God has always called the unlikely ones to follow him:
Moses stuttered.
Timothy had stomach problems.
Jacob was a liar.
David had an affair.
Abraham was too old.
John was self-righteous.
Naomi was a poor widow.
Paul was a murderer.
Jonah ran from God.
Miriam was a gossip
Gideon doubted -
as did Thomas. the apostle
Jeremiah was depressed and suicidal.
Elijah was burnt out.
Martha was a worrier.
Amos’ training was in fig-tree pruning. Interesting is it not that God doesn’t so much look at our weaknesses, shortcomings or the faults or our past, only rather our willingness to follow the way of the Lord.
