Finding Peace in God's Plan

"God doesn't call the qualified he qualifies the called"
I keep being told this but honestly it's kind of hard to believe. I know that God is calling me for certain thing yet every time I work towards these goals I feel truly less and less qualified. That is no exaggeration.
My biggest flaw that I don't like about myself is I never feel good enough, like ever. No matter how good I may be at something someone in my mind is always way better than me. I get timid and feel stupid for asking questions which then makes me feel even worse about myself.
If we are being completely honest here, sometimes it is really hard to trust God. Even though in my heart I know he has a plan for me. (Jeremiah 29:11) But sometimes my head gets in the way and that is the perfect time for the devil to come in. That's the thing though, the devil never has any new ideas. He literally tries the same things over and over and honestly fails each time because even when I have doubt of what I am doing, God's love takes over me and reminds me of my purpose.
Patience is key. Patience is also something I don't have a lot of.
It takes strength to get over the doubt, the fear, the uncertainty but my strength comes from God and heck that is some pretty powerful strength if you ask me.
"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous hand." (Isaiah 41:10)
How amazing to think that the all powerful God provides us with our strength! Just thinking that makes me genuinely feel better about where I am at in life.
I have doubt, but rather than keeping that inside of me I pray to God and I tell him my doubts and he in return delivers me comfort and for that I am forever thankful.
I pray that verse above helps you like it has helped me get through the harder times.
I'm working on memorizing Bible verses more and have quickly decided I want that one embedded in my brain forever, to pull out in times when I need it most. So right after posting this I am going to write it down on an index card and put it in my car where I'll see it the most and work on memorizing it and I encourage you to do the same.
After this past Easter weekend I have felt encouraged to do more for the God who sent his only Son to die on the cross for us. This new life of mine is not one I want to waste. I want to make God proud by following the plan he has for me and showing Him I can do what He knows I am capable of.
