Many of us to feel guilty or feel like there's some flaw in our faith when we are reluctant to do something that we sense God is putting on our hearts to do. Is it wrong for me to feel cautious about following God's plan for my life? How do I overcome my apprehension when I feel like God is calling me to do something I'm not really excited about doing?

And yet, despite their flaws God used them to do incredible things. Who are some of these imperfect followers of God? And what can their stories teach us about our own potential to be used by God in powerful ways?
