I turned the calendar page to a new page. The verse for today
is, " I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
The little thought that goes with it says, " God sometimes asks of us things that look
impossible, but they never turn out to be--- because God's command is always
I suppose you can think of all kinds of things that were impossible situations that
you made it through.
I know I can. I should sit down sometime and think of each one. The biggest
impossible situation I always put first on the list was when our twin grand sons
were born and they weighed barely 1 pound each. The night we went home
from the hospital the doctors last words were, " if they make it through the night."
"then if they make it through the next day, and on and on it went.
That was an impossible situation that now as they run around and want to go with
Grama to get "chicken eggs," I still find the gift of the impossible still so breath taking
and it makes me feel so much in awe of God's grace.
Well, I am in another impossible situation, though none so scary or awe inspiring.
But still impossible by my standard. As always I have taken it to the Lord and laid it
at His feet. Whether it is my desire and not His I don't know yet, it is still in the early
stages of waiting and praying for.
Sometimes I like being in this place, because I like to see mountains moved and
ducks line up in a row. I have as Gideon did, laid my fleece out and I will wait and
I don't even know if it is just a very nice dream and it is always nice to have dreams
to dream. I will though keep my eyes open to see all that God will do and I liked that
today is a day filled with dreams.
And you know what? Even if He says no to my plans I will still trust Him because as
I have learned, His ways are always best.
I hope you have a wonderful Monday.
