From the scripture stories of Isaiah, Paul, and Peter, they appear to be saintly and effective instruments of God. Yet each one first protested his unworthiness, and could easily have missed what God was calling him to do. Thousands of years later, that obstacle - the feeling of not being capable or worthy or perfect enough for the job - is still actively operating.
