Doubt, self-pity, insecurity, and discouragement: these rob many young people of the opportunity to give themselves a chance to use their potential. By not venturing to do so, they neglect their purpose or live it half-heartedly, if they dare. Worse than that, many young people never think of themselves as people God can or wants to use. They magnify their weakness, devalue their worth, and give up on hope. To them, their situation is unlike any other and nothing good can be done by them, through them, or with them.
This book shatters that mindset and encourages children and young people to believe that God wants to and does use "ordinary" people to do great things for His purpose. It challenges the reader to shift their focus from their weaknesses and allow God to work in and through them. It references Bible characters whom God used and points to some of their own shortcomings, not in a demeaning manner, but as a way of inspiring hope in the reader. Finally, it gives some biblical pointers and keys to prepare oneself for God's use.
