Nothing is too hard for God!

Hi friends ~You have been on my heart & mind a lot lately. Although I’m out of the loop on what’s going on in your lives, I’m assured that when God brings you to mind, He knows the details. And as I pray for you, He knows exactly how to interpret those prayers according to His amazing love for you & His glorious will.

A while ago, I started a new page in my prayer/QT journal. I call it my “Nothing is Too Hard for God” page. On the top of the page, I have some wonderful Scriptural truths about God’s Power and our need to never give up as we pray. Verses like Jeremiah 32:17-19, Luke 18:1, Luke 1:37…

Then, underneath those verses, I listed those situations in and around my life and in the lives of those I love where unless God intervenes, there is no human hope. I listed dear friends fighting cancer, the salvation of a few “stubborn, but good” people, the restoration of some marriages that had previously glorified the Lord, the profitable sale of our Nashville house, some “difficult” people God has placed in our paths, a family of children who experienced a terrible tragedy & trauma that would seem impossible to ever recover from …

I LOVE this page in my journal! It gives me great joy to turn to it and to pray about the impossible situations listed before the Lord! One of these days, He will work the “impossible” in these lives. He may not answer in the way I think He should, but He will answer. And when He does, I’ll get to do my most favorite part of my prayer journaling: putting a big, fat X right in the blank I drew before I ever wrote the request.

Do you have some “impossible” needs before you today? Are they weighing you down with worry or fear? If so, I encourage you to write them down, and give them to The Lord.

“For with God, nothing is impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment.” (Luke 1:37)

If you know you are praying in line with God’s Word and God’s will, don’t give up! Nothing is too hard or too wonderful for God! (From Jer. 32:17-19)

I love each one of you, and pray for God to strengthen, encourage, & guide you through those “impossible” situations. Our Lord knows your needs and is Great in Counsel and Mighty in Deeds! Seek Him in His Word, obey Him and Trust Him. He IS the God of the impossible!

With much love ~

PS: Speaking of impossible situations, on the lighter side of the subject, Jesus and I (and anyone else He brings along) will be priming and painting white a huge amount of Robins Egg Blue kitchen cabinets over the next few days. When I get to the house today, I’ll take a picture & post it on Twitter. Maybe you can see it on my top left sidebar… Maybe…

Have a great day in The Lord! He loves you so!

  1. Oh I have missed being able to read your pearls of the WORD!! I so needed this today! I thank God for you!

  2. Oh so true – nothing is too hard for Him…the hard part is my faith – truly trusting and believing WITH ALL MY HEART (and not just my words) that God not only can answer the impossible requests but that He already knows the answer. Sometimes, I think He must surely be stumped with some requests (you know what I mean!) Love the idea of keeping a log of the impossible – AND their answers!!

    You are a blessing – have a beautiful week:)

  3. Thanks for the reminder!
