Is anything too hard for God?

That would be an emphatic NO! 

Yet, last Monday, when my world began to spiral out of control, fear washing over me as boiling water, believing I would melt right where I stood, a decision HAD to be made:  do I believe and stand or quit and run away?

It went way beyond my brain's ability to grasp how deep, how personal, and how applicable God's power and grace would be that moment when I turned heavenward and said, "God, I can't do this again."

 I turned my heart to listen--(called a friend who would hear Him for me because at that moment I couldn't hear anything), she prayed for me and believed for me for freedom and deliverance.  She prayed so many things, I really don't remember all of it.  But it was Life and truth and I knew deep in my soul that I wanted God to be God in the situation.  (I could go off on a tangent now about how important friends are who love God and who tell you the truth, but that'll be for another post!)


 It's what sets one free.
And because Jesus is the truth,  I am certain that Every time I reach towards Him, I have strength to die to myself so that His life will flow out in order to:

...forgive seventy times seven times.

 ...love unconditionally.

...live fully alive.

It is truly amazing what God can do.

I've been quiet this past month and much has transpired in that silence.  Though outwardly, things don't look much different, I know that inside I'm conforming to His image and He's fashioning me for His purposes. 
Now that's exciting.

The above photo reminds me of a Scripture:   " And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity]." Ps. 1:3 Amp. version

beautiful post! I have had a few "God, I can't do this again" moments over the years; admittedly *blush* I have also had temper tantrums of "God, I don't want to go through this again"... either way, His Grace abounds amazingly...
Truth... live by it, breathe it, trust it...

Blessings to you,
