All Things Are Possible

I seem to think that Covid is stopping a lot of things from happening. I find myself frustrated. The other day I read these words by Sarah Young, "Refuse to be intimidated by the way things look at the moment. I am training you to live by faith, not by sight." Wow! At first I totally got the part about being intimidated by the way things look right now but I feel I have a lot of faith. So I asked God to show me what I need. Haha More faith!

For a long time my number one spiritual gift was faith. Now it is in the top three. But we will never, ever have enough. I just have to keep moving in that direction. I began to think about how I look at the world and I am intimidated by all that is going on. Matthew 19: 26, "But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." I need to change my focus. Our God can do anything! He can do the impossible! Luke 1: 37, "For with God nothing will be impossible."

I am amazed when I go outside in His Creation and see all that He has done and that increases my faith. If He can make the ocean and all the fish, He can take care of me. If He can feed the birds, He can provide for me. If He can hang the sunrise, He can guide me. If He can paint the beautiful sunset, He can clear my path. If He can hang the stars in the sky, He can have the best plan for me!

So even though I do not understand how things are going to get done, I don't have to. I just have to have the faith that God can take care of all of my stuff, even in this messy world. Proverbs 3: 5-6, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths." God is able to do what no man can imagine or do.
