Day 61: Unqualified

Happy… what is today? Tuesday?
Sure.  That sounds right – we’ll roll with it.
Happy Tuesday and Day 61 of Another 100 Days of Hannah, y’all!
So, I realized after I finished writing last night, that yesterday was Day 60.  I always feel like I should comment every about 10 days on how quickly this is progressing, etc, etc, etc.

But I didn’t.

So here’s my obligatory comment:

She doesn’t have it together.
She doesn’t do what she’s supposed to do, and does what she isn’t.
She’s a little rugged.
She’s a little wild.
And yet, somehow, by the end of the movie, she ends up being a hero – even though, by all the standards of the abbey, she was completely unqualified.
This thought of being unqualified reminds me of a quote from Christine Caine (I think): 
God doesn’t call the qualified.  He qualifies the called.
I’m admittedly running out of a time for a comprehensive analysis of instances in scripture where this statement holds true… maybe another day – but, suffice it to say that the accounts are numerous. 
Which is pretty encouraging for a messy kid from the middle of nowhere.
And hopefully it is for you too.
‘Til tomorrow,
