God will so use unlikely and ordinary persons if they are willing . Consider how God reached Naaman through '' a little maid '' ( 2 Kings 5:2 ) . God used Ananias to lead Paul (Acts 9:10-18 ) . The Bible is full of how God used faithful, willing, ordinary folk. Today, God still is using people like you and me to touch and change lives through His grace if we'll allow Him in our lives . God Bless you all your Family and your Ministry.

Kingdom Keys: The “Looking Glass”
Often times, you can get off track on your journey of achieving maximum achievement in the Kingdom of God when you fail to stop using the “Looking Glass”. This happens when you allow the “Looking Glass Self” to prevail as a means to self-identify your purpose and destiny.
