As October comes to an end, and November is a mere few hours away, I thought I’d repost a blog entry from a few years ago. My words came back to me, reminding me that time slips by so quickly.
The wind is biting, and my thick sweater is not enough to protect against the late Fall temperatures.
I hurry to get inside to the warmth. The kitchen lights leave puddles on the counter top, as I quickly put groceries away.
Life is a blur, but I want to slow it down.
It’s Friday. November 22nd. 2013. This day will soon be gone, and there will never be another just like it……
Oh, how I wish I could live each day remembering this fact.
When the merry-go-round goes wild and the moments make me dizzy….
Yesterday, while making dinner I watched Ann Voskamp and Liz Curtis Higgs, “Christmas at the Farm”. (If you too,would like to see the Webcast, go here. ) These two ladies are inspiring. They gave me a gift. They took my hand, frazzled and worn, and led me to the Savior. Towards the end of the visit, Liz spoke of Luke 1:37. “Nothing is impossible with God.” That happens to be my very favorite Bible verse and I just knew she was talking to me personally.
Nothing. Not anything. Nothing big. Nothing small. N-O-T-H-I-N-G is impossible with God.
How many of us need to hear that today? At this very moment? Every day, a reminder?
The darkness is creeping around the edges of the late afternoon sky. 4:30 seems much later….almost time to start dinner.
But, even as the darkness descends, and the temperature plummets, I know this…
My moments are here and now, and God sees them and feels them all.
I can rest in the knowledge that there is no such thing as impossible with Him.
For with God nothing shall be impossible. Luke 1:37 KJV
