Jeremiah 1
Jeremiah 2
Jeremiah 3
James 3

Jeremiah 1: The word of the Lord came to me, saying,

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew[a] you,
    before you were born I set you apart;
    I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

“Alas, Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I do not know how to speak; I am too young.” But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command youDo not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.

When I read the Lord’s charge to Jeremiah & Jeremiah’s initial response I was reminded of how many times I may make excuses for not doing what the Lord intends me to do.  As you can see from the Lord’s response, there is no excuse.  He made us for a purpose.
