God is looking for those with whom He can do the impossible. AW Tozer

I’d like to say my faith is at that point where God can use me to do the impossible, but I don’t believe I’m there yet. In Matthew 19:26 Jesus says, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” There are many who God used to do the impossible. Daniel slept with lions without a scratch, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego walked out of a fiery furnace without even the slightest sing of hair or clothing, a woman with a blood disorder was healed because of her faith after touching Jesus’ cloak.

I know that my fear of what others think of me stops me from letting my faith soar to the side of the impossible. My prayer is that God would help me care more what He thought of me than what others think of me. What holds your faith back? What keeps God from using you to do the impossible?

My spiritual gift is administration. Give me a something to organize and I am all over it. Paper, files, charts are my friends. However, if I have to muster up some mercy, that’s a totally different story. It is hard for me to stop the task and see the people. I saw a sign the other day that reminded me of this very thing- “Be kind today. Everyone is fighting some sort of battle.”

I am not giving myself a pass just because mercy is not my gift. I know that is not an excuse. We all need to show mercy to others and sometimes to ourselves (I am my own worst enemy). Some people find that very easy; I have to work hard at it.

We are so blessed to be surrounded by God’s grace and mercy. What would this world be like if the Great I AM was only interested in the organization of the earth and the task of controlling the weather with no thought of His people? Jesus showed us the very definition of mercy. “Yet while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8) Or, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do.” (Luke 23:34) Mercy for others is not an option, it is an act of obedience to the one who showed us mercy. We can only be more like Jesus when we act more like Jesus. Is there someone you need to show mercy to today or do you need to stop organizing and pray; asking Him to show you how to be more merciful?

The gift of administration is a wonderful thing. God knew someone down here needed to plan and direct and file. Just don’t let it get in the way of seeing others with a merciful eye.

Several months ago I lost the diamonds (all of them) from my wedding band. The center cracked out leaving just the sides of the band and a huge hole. I’ve been wearing this silver ring in its place because I kept feeling my finger for my missing ring. First anxiety would feel me thinking I had lost it, then sadness filled me as I remembered that it was gone for good.

I took this picture wearing my Thankful shirt because I’d rather have a broken wedding ring than a broken marriage. And because of God, my marriage is amazing. For that, I am truly thankful.

What are you thankful for? Please let us know in the comments.

BTW, my husband surprised me by taking me ring shopping. My new ring should be in soon.

Get your #thankful shirt from ​His-Child.com. It also comes in a ​dark heather gray.

On September 11, 2001, I was walking down my college walkways headed to class. At the time, I like my Cd’s more than the radio and had no clue as to what had happened. I walked into one of the foyers of a building that had a few TV’s in the sitting areas. There were several students glued to the screen so I went to see what had happened. That’s when I saw the horrifying events unfold. I will never forget that day. My heart broke for the thousands who were hurting and scared. I was scared too. And praying, lots of praying as I continuously ran to God asking for help, understanding and protection.

This last year I visited the Flight 93 crash site and memorial in Pennsylvania. It was an emotional visit and one that brought back all the events and feelings from that day.

A lot of people ask questions of God when events like 9.11 happen. I know I did too. After a school shooting Relevant Magazine posted an article by Sarah Sumner called “Where Is God In Tragedy?” She says, “Even when tragedies happen, God can still be trusted. God is. And God is faithful. He has given us many gifts as we entrust ourselves to Him in our pain and in our empathy for others. Perhaps the three most visible gifts are the gift of people, the gift of joy and the gift of God Himself.” We saw many people jump into action and become heroes that day and in the weeks and months ahead. We saw the good side of our country as we banded together to help each other and fight terrorism. People who would never darken the door of a church were racing to them seeking God.

I will never forget those who suffered and are still suffering and those who sacrificed to help their fellow man. May God bless the hurting with peace and comfort and bless the heroes for their amazing efforts.

POST WHERE YOU WERE WHEN YOU FIRST HEARD ABOUT THE EVENTS OF 9.11.

Tragedy has once again struck America when Hurricane Harvey hit Texas, Irma hit Florida and the wildfires spread in Washington, Oregon, Montana and California. Keep praying for those who lost their homes, jobs and family. They have a long recovery time ahead of them.

I am a big fan of reading the Bible in Chronological order. This is when you read the Bible in the order in which events happened. Many people do not realize that the Bible was not placed together in the order of events like most literature. For example, the events in the book of Job happened sometime between the flood and Moses (there are three suggested times Job may have lived within this time period reasoned by Bible scholars), and yet, his book is 13 books away from Deuteronomy which records Moses death. Reading the bible in order of events helps me understand why “C” happened because I just read “A” and “B” in order. If you are interested in this type of Bible reading, I suggest using the YouVersion Bible app. Although it’s a read the Bible in a year, you can still go at your own pace and it already has the readings in order for you. Search “Chronological Bible” in the reading plans and you’ll find a few to pick from.

What is your favorite way to read the BIBLE?

My husband always jokes about believing in bigfoot or sasquatches. According to him, believing in the Lock Ness Monster is crazy, but bigfoot is real. A neighbor of ours has a silhouette cut out of bigfoot attached to the far back of his fence and my husband points it out every time we pass it. He and his barber (since childhood) joke about this American mystery and those who are… overly curious about bigfoot. And, although science has little evidence to support the bigfoot theory, that doesn’t stop people from believing.

In John 20, Thomas (also known as doubting Thomas), one of Jesus’ disciples was told to touch Jesus’ wounds to help him believe in Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. And he did believe. John 20:29 says, “Jesus said, “Because you have seen Me, you have believed. Those who believe without seeing are blessed.”” I don’t know where I stand on the discussion of bigfoot, not do I really care. But, I know that I am blessed for I do believe in Jesus and His resurrection without seeing or feeling the scars in His hands.

Do you have trouble believing? Then, I would suggest a few books of people who did as well. These books show their research and their conclusions.

Cold-Case Christianity by J. Warner Wallace

If you knew the worlds electricity would be turned off for good, would you not research how to survive without it? If you knew you were going to be in a sinking ship, would you not learn how to swim? If you knew that one day you will die, would you not research how to prepare for it? (Wait, this last one is true for everyone.) Or, do you wait, hoping to have enough time before you last few breaths to do some research?

Do you believe in Jesus and His resurrection? If so, type YES into our comments.

He showers me with compliments daily. I have no doubt that he loves me. And as I get older and age takes its toll, I become more and more grateful for these compliments. My level of thankfulness for his affection grows daily.

However, I know that there are many out there, who may be reading this now, who do not feel loved. Maybe a neglected wife or husband, and ignored child, a widow or widower, or a lonely adult. And, if we search the internet we will find all kinds of solutions to our problem. Some helpful and some that may have short term results but ultimately lead down a road to heartache and pain. If you feel unloved, know this: GOD LOVES YOU! This is truth, whether you feel it or not. Romans 8:35-39 says, “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? …For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” See, GOD LOVES YOU! And to prove His love He sent you a love letter, His Word. Want to tap into that love; read your Bible daily. Read it as if you hunger for it like chocolate and thirst for it like a Latte. Then the head knowledge of love with become heart knowledge.

TODAY, Pray for someone you know who needs to feel loved. Or, pray for yourself to feel God’s love, but do the foot work and read your love letter daily.

It always begins with hope and excitement…

I love it when my team wins.  The game always begins with hope and excitement.  However, it can sometimes end in anger and disappointment.  Why didn’t he throw to second instead of home? What was the pitcher thinking when he didn’t cover first base?  How could he miss a catch like that!  All games are alike, until it’s over you don’t know how it will end.

Our victory in Christ is very different.  It begins and ends the same. 1 Corinthians 15:57 says, “But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Christ is the victor and we are victorious through Him.  No matter how hopeless the problem or insurmountable the situation seems, we have the promise of Christ that we will end in victory.  The game may not be played the way we think it should, but we will WIN with Christ as our Lord! Be confident in our team because our coach is the King of Kings!  Victory is ours!

If you have victory in Jesus give this post a like! ❤❤❤❤❤
