As I considered what to draw, into my mind came an image: A glass bottle filled about halfway with water. I drew what I saw, and added tears of sorrow, which were filling the bottle. Next to the bottle was an open book, with more tears spilling onto the page. As the tears dripped onto the page, they transformed into the words of the book. After I finished, I described the picture to her along with God’s message to her: God had seen all her tears of pain and sorrow, and put them into a bottle. He also recorded each tear in a book of remembrance and was aware of each tear.
But, I believe if God opens a door for you, He will equip you accordingly and in His time. Yes, we will have to learn to excel in our calling, but our lack of being equipped should not be the reason not to step out in faith. It does not matter what position you find yourself in at this moment; do not succumb to feelings of inferiority or fear. Amos was not a coward; instead, he stepped out and prophesied to Israel, and his words certainly were not prophecies of prosperity, but hard words of destruction and despair for Israel if they did not turn from their ways.
