With God all things are possible!!!

Matthew 19:26 (NKJV)
But Jesus looked at them and said to them,
With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

I mentioned on Monday that last Friday I had a bad day. I spent a lot of the day running errands getting ready for Mamaw's birthday celebration...I stayed busy, but still managed to find time for another kind of party...a pity party!!!! Don't you just love having those??? Don't they make you just feel so much better and they just solve all your problems??? Please know I'm kidding!! I feel worse after one of those bouts than I did before, because they leave me feeling drained, and also a bit guilty for not having the faith that I know I should have. I already mentioned that God answered a prayer for me that afternoon...but also something else happened. When Pappy got home from work, he had a little "thank you" gift from a fellow he works was the little plaque in the picture that says "With God All Things Are Possible"!! I knew that God was speaking to me thru that little piece of stone. He knew what kind of day I was going to have even before Friday came. He spoke to Pappy's friend and prompted him and his wife to give us that little present....on the very day that God knew I needed to be reminded...that with Him all things are possible. Do you believe that? Do you understand what God can do with your faith...even when your faith is so tiny? Listen to this:

Matthew 17:20 (KJV)
And Jesus said unto them, "
Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you."

Do you know how tiny a mustard seed is? It's about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. In this statement made by Jesus, He is saying that if we have just that small amount of faith, that it can move a mountain. Do I think He means a real "mountain"? I think in this example it means anything that might be hindering us, or worrying us. But, yes, I do think that if God so chooses, He can move an actual mountain...if that's what it takes to get our attention and make us realize that He is God...and He is in control...and He is in charge!!!

I believe that sharing how God has gotten me thru tough times and how He continues to lead and guide me is a part of my testimony. God is so much bigger and so much more powerful that I give Him credit for. He comes thru for us...sometimes at the "eleventh hour"...but He ALWAYS provides. There are so many instances that I could name where He has taken care of us....and in ways that I would have never even imagined....only God could have done some of the miracles I've seen happen. Stepping out on faith....even if it is faith as tiny as a little speck...and leaving the rest up to God...that's all He asks of us...and then we leave the rest up to Him. Because...with me, some things are impossible...but with God...HE MAKES ALL THINGS POSSIBLE!!!

What an awesome...powerful...all knowing...loving God we serve.

In His Love...and with mine!!!
