we have to believe that God can use us

for God to fully use us, for us to fulfill our purpose
we have to believe that God can use us
that God is able, powerful enough,
to use our brokenness, for His holy work
we must not put any fetters on God
we have to believe that God can use us
for God to fully use us, for us to fulfill our purpose
