Cinco De Mayo

"Wanna taco bout Jesus?" I saw this saying on a tee shirt and thought it was cute for Cinco de mayo. What is cinco de Mayo? It translates to May fifth and it represents the Battle of Pubela which shows us that we can do hard things… even the things that seem impossible!

The Mexican army consisted of 2000 regular men to fight against 6000 highly trained and fully funded French troop. To both Mexico and France, it was a no-brainer, easy battle. The French were ready to take over Mexico. Those regular men came together and surrounded the town even though they were outnumbered 3 to 1! The French finally withdrew after losing nearly 500 soldiers. Fewer than 100 Mexican were killed. This reminds me of the story of David overcoming the giant, Goliath.

No matter what you are facing today, nothing is impossible with God. Matthew 19: 26, "Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." With God, we can overcome giants, obstacles and shortcomings. Remember, He parted the sea! He turned water to wine! He raised Lazarus from the dead! The undoable is done, the unwinnable is won, sickness goes away, broken marries and relationships can be restored, depression can go away, a prodigal child can return and the list goes on! Whatever your battle is, do not lose hope because with God all things are possible! God also gives us the strength to carry on. Philippians 4: 13, "I can do all this through him who gives me strength."

On this cinco de Mayo share a victory in your life where God did the impossible!

"Catch up with Jesus. Lettuce praise and relish Him. Cuz He loves me from my head to-ma-toes!" A little cinco de mayo humor!
