Nothing is impossible in HIS world

Watching Joel Osteen this morning and the Lord must be using him to preach right at me and my current situation this morning. He is preaching that we should never laugh in disbelief at what God puts in front of us even if it seems impossible. For whenyou laugh God will simply say welcome my child to my world. 

Nothing is impossible in HIS world. 

It may not happen right away, there may be obstacles placed in your way.  This is never going to happen you may think. But that is only because as humans we can not always see the larger picture but rest assured HE does. We must keep the faith, continue to praise the Lord, continue to push through the obstacles and when HE blesses you with that which you thought was impossible. With as Olsteen called it a “who ever thought miracle.” You won’t be laughing in disbelief any longer you will be laughing in amazement. 

Nothing is impossible in HIS world. 

I have congestive heart failure an on June 7th I had a cardiac event. My heart stopped, doctors told my sister things don’t look so good. But God look down on me and said son it is yet your time and HE breathed the gift of life back into my body. A week later the hospital minister would come into my room and with a huge laugh say miracle man I can’t believe you  are up and talking to me after what you looked like last week.  He was laughing in amazement. 

Nothing is impossible in HIS world. 

My cardiologist tells me the medicine he prescribes for me and the diet he says I should follow will help me maintain my health. But you can’t just reverse congestive heart failure. I just laugh in disbelief at that. Sure I will take my medicine and follow my diet but while he may prescribe medicines and suggest diets to maintain my health it is only HE who can truly heal me and then we will all be laughing in amazement. 

Nothing is impossible in HIS world. 

You see I have faith that the Lord has not brought me to this point along the spiritual  journey to simply drop me off on the side of the road.  I have faith that while I may not see it completely HE knows the big picture. HE sees what he has in store in for me. I have faith that as Osteen preached this morning HE is positioning me to do something positive. I will continue to pray to and praise him and you should too. No matter what your current situation may be. No matter what obstacles may appear to be in your path. Keep the faith and soon you will be laughing in amazement.  

Nothing is impossible in HIS world.

Sometimes we have to do what we have to do

Sometimes we have to do what we don’t want to do so that we may do the things we want to do. As Spock would say it is not logical but it is often true.

Is your faith strong and pure?

Anyone can say they have faith but it is only those whose relationship with the Lord is strong and pure that truly have it. Life gives us our share of up and downs and as with anything the up times are easy. During the up times we cruise along enjoying the moment. For so many of us we do not take the time to stop and praise the Lord for bestowing upon us his blessings, believing rather arrogantly that it is we ourselves and we alone that are responsible for our success. But true faith is defined by our actions in the down times. It is in the downtimes that our arrogance is stripped from us. It is doing the downtime that many of us blame the Lord for our troubles. True faith asks are you willing to accept responsibility for your part in whatever has gone wrong. Are you willing to make the changes required to strengthen your relationship with the Lord, or will you simply grumble that he has forsaken you and walk away from Him. For so many of us when faced with this choice we find it easier to just walk away from the Lord. Now do not misconstrue me the fact is that for the vast majority of us our faith comes with some semblance of doubt. We are after all human and by definition none of us are perfect and as such it is natural that our faith wavers at times, especially in times of tribulation. However for those whose faith in the Lord is strong and pure while it may initially waver eventually we realize that the Lord always walks with us because of He created us, we are His children, He forgives our sins and He loves us. We believe that He is always working to remove our troubles and provide us with a new and renewed spirit. We fall back on our faith not because we say we have it but because it is pure and true. Because we value the good times the Lord has provided for us and understand that the only way not to lose them is to praise Him each and every day, in good and bad times. It is when we are willing to let go and put our faith in the Lord will we see that there is nothing He will let us go without, that with Him all things are possible. It is only then that we can truly say we have faith and that it is pure and true.

They Lied to You

They lied to you. Looked you right in the eyes and told you they loved you. Looked you right in the eyes and told you they wanted to spend their life with you. But truthfully you were just a bridge a soft landing spot out of a bad situation for them. But since you believed their lies the hurt of losing them almost broke you and then one day it happened. You woke up and didn’t reach for them, their absence from your life was not your first thought. Your mind had finally come to the understanding that they were never worthy of your love, that they were not the one you were meant to share your life with. Your heart dropped the wall it had built up and while somewhat scarred it was mostly intact and was now willing to let others in again. You had learned a valuable lesson about both love and deceit and while painful it did not break you just the opposite over time it made you stronger. Strong enough to love again unconditionally the one who looks you in the eyes and really means it when say I love you.
