All things are possible

Looking at them, Jesus said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God, because all things are possible with God.” – Mark 10:27.

How many times in life have I said this verse over and over in my head?  How many times have I said it and have not truly believed it?

I have suffered anxiety many times in my life.  It’s amazing to me how many times my soul has been restless through the years, waking up unexpectedly at night, stopping dead in my steps random times of the day – only to find that God has placed someone very, very close to me on my heart.  Usually one of those someones has been one of my children.  Time would always prove that something BIG, some attack, something loomed in the life of that “child” even before I was physically made aware of it.   One of the lessons these different times of heart concerns has taught me is to “give it over to God, to open my hands and let go of whatever it may be” because I knew in those instances the “it” was always bigger than me, but never bigger than my Abba Father.  Was it always easy to let it go?  No, it was not.  I would fight letting go so many times, only to find myself fighting a battle I could never win on my own.  It is during those times I tell myself that my fight is impossible for me, but with God all is possible – I do not ever have to face anything ALONE.

I have to confess much of the anxiety, the worry in my life comes from my own failure to trust and to thank God in all things, yes even the bad.   That is EUCHARISTEO.

So today, as my heart grieves, as dark looms in the life of one of my own, I give thanks – thanks with joy and grace through the tears – that ALL things are possible with Jesus.  Eucharisteo always precedes the miracle.

I am a follower of Jesus on the journey of discovering His real, lasting joy through God's grace and thanksgiving. Several years ago, I married my best friend, whom I met in kindergarten many years ago. Life choices took each of us on separate paths, but Divine Appointment brought our paths back together. It's exciting to share this journey with my sweet man - a man who loves God more than he loves me! What a gift!! As a young woman I prayed for God to send a godly man like my daddy to pursue me. I just wasn't listening and abiding when I should have been. Good news in HIS time and in HIS grace, HE did! Not only does my sweet man love me, but he loves my three grown kids as if they were his own. He shares their joys and he hurts when they hurt. I love to hear him pray for each of them daily as we begin and end our days. View all posts by beegee10
