Author requests article critique


Have you ever had this thought of guilt that makes you feel so lowóso depressed and bound to the ground?

Have you ever had this thought that you are good for nothing?

Have you ever had this fear of doing things on your own?

Have you ever had these discouraging and extremely devastating thoughts of inferiority and minority complex; which makes

you think youíre empty and all you could produce is vanity?

Did you grow up in a suppressing environment where you have been badly influenced forced by negative peoples around you to

believe and think that you are a failure and even a hopeless one; maybe because you have failed in one responsibility or

the other?

Have you been compelled from within that you will in no wise and in no way get to the top, due to your past poor

performances? Youíve been made to believe that you are weak and it seems everyone around is sick of you and sees you as a

lazy bone, without any atom of hope to excel. And all you now see is your weakness and not the strength and greatness which

God, even your Father has put abundantly in YOU!

Have the voices of men began to speak louder inside you than the word of God that encourages and breathes into you the

fresh air of power and greatness?

Iím not useless.

Iím not useless.

Say it to yourself over and over again!

Iím not useless!

Because Iím now born again,

Christ is not in me in vain!

Iím not useless.

Iím not hopeless.

I have greatness.

My hope is glorious.

Iím a person of potentials.

Thereís something good Iím good at.

I have the essential tools for success.

I even have them in excess.

Yes, I have all things that pertain to life and godliness.

I have the Name of the Lord,

His Word,

His Blood,

His Spirit,

His Grace,

His Mercyósweet!

Iím standing in His place,

I cannot be useless!

Iím not useless.

Oh my soul, why are you disquieted?

Why donít you believe youíre great?

Why donít you believe I can do it?

Why donít you believe I can still succeed?

Why donít you believe youíre opportune?

Why do you condemn yourself to failure?

Why donít you believe you belong to the top?

Why donít you believe you can still rise again from bottom?

If my heart condemns me to failure,

God my true source of success is greater than my heart!

I can still stand.

I can still start.

I can still win.

I can still rule.

Iím not useless!

I may not do ďall thingsĒ,

But thereís something positive Iím good at.

I can still stand. Though I may have failed, yet I can still start!

Iím not useless.

I may not have all the skills, talents and gifts,

But I know, I know Iím not empty

I have something in me for others to benefit

Christ is not in me without anything

Heís there with full divine deposits

Iím not useless.

Öcanít be fruitless!

When he ascended up on high

He gave gifts to men

Iím not left outóHe never can lie

He gave gifts to all, even me

Öcanít be fruitless!

There are just impacts I can make

As I stand firm in His Name

Iím not uselessóIím useful and Amen!

Iím not uselessóI have Jesus right in me!

I may not do ďgreat thingsĒ,

But I can do ďlittleĒ things greatly

I may not do ďnew thingsĒ,

But I can do things differently.

Thereís something I can do that others may not.

Iím different.

Iím not useless.

Iím unique!

Inside me are riches of grace

Beside me are riches of glory

I can make it in every place!

I can tell my sweet success story,

Of how Jesus in me prevailed over failure

And stood me upon the mountaintop

Even when fear and doubt came to lure

I still believed and stood my ground that Iím not useless!

Oh! The seed that succeeds is in me!

Iím not useless!

Iím not useless!

I wasnít born of God in vain

But rather born unto great gains

Öcanít be fruitlessÖ.no, shouldnít!

Though there be strains and pains,

As I fervently serve Him to maximize my potent strength,

Yet will I rejoice and continue stretching,

And daily living by His true teaching!

He that comes to Christ with all his heart,

And live for Him with all His might,

...canít be fruitless.

Iím not useless.

No, no more.

But if I was,

That was then,

Öwhen Heaven wasnít yet in me!

But now the kingdom of God is within

And it is the Kingdom of Light, great and exceeding riches,

Of honour and glory,

Beauty and purity,

Power and might,

Wisdom and freedom,

Peace and light,

Joy and hope,

Scepter and decree,

Crown and throne,

Love and love,

Life and life,

Rest and rest,

Peace and peace,

Bliss and bliss,

Righteousness and graciousness,

Holiness and faith,

Uprightness and strength,

Health and wealth,

Thanksgiving and praises!

Having all these, I canít still be fruitlessÖ

No way.

I have it all.

I canít be useless.

I have the capacity to be fruitful,

Continuous fruitfulness even in the days of old!

I have the opportunity to be prayerful

Prayingóbearing fruits till His face I behold!

Only let me to Him remain faithful

And His divine deposits not frustrate!

Iím of all men most fortunate.

Iím not useless. No. No. No!

Let me keep the burningómoving zeal on!

And do what little or great I do,

With my heart and all Iíve got!

Oh my Lord, thank you for saving meóthou art true!

Oh my world, I canít leave without challenging and changing you!

Hear it again,

Iím not useless.

Iím not fruitless.

Iím not hopeless.

Iím not homeless.

Thereís something good Iím good at.

No matter how low, I can still stand.

No matter how long, I can still start!

Iím not useless!

Of course you are not useless, Sixtus. You are aware that you are love, {God} in action. As Christ resides within, our job is to bring Him to fruition,bring Him to the front,so that those around us will be drawn to His light. Blessings! Veronica
