This is my verse for the year so what better way to start off day 6 of #write31days than with the #FMFParty Prompt “possible”!?!
It is so true though, I am learning through this year that this verse really was what I needed to hear and hear again as time has gone on.
It isn’t easy being a parent. It is really, really hard to co-parent with your own parents when you have different beliefs and different expectations. I am finding this is becoming a meditation of sorts because when everything around me makes me feel upset and defeated (I am HIGHLY emotional) reminding myself that all things are possible with God seems to ground me and remind me of His faithfulness to me even when I am not faithful to Him.
It amazes me that choosing such a simple verse for myself for the year can have such an impact on the day to day. In a lot of ways it has helped me to stay on track with reading and reviews, blogging, and picking myself up when I really, REALLY don’t want to.
I have learned this year that parenting with my parents is possible.
That loving my children while disliking their behaviour is not only possible, but necessary.
I have learned that saying I love you, even though it is rarely said back, is in fact heard.
With the diagnosis of arthritis and degenerative disc disease I have realized that pain free days are possible and even predictable to an extent. I have learned that journaling really helps me to feel sane. I have learned that God has a purpose for me and that is why He has kept me alive. I have learned that keeping pets are really hard on my body and that in order to keep things under control I have to be more strict (no more sleeping in my bed).
I have learned that you CAN teach an old bird to talk and best of all, laugh!
I have learned to mourn. I have had so many losses in my life but never actually grieved. I have become more capable of mourning a loss in a healthy way, which I never ever thought would be possible for me. EVER.
I know this post doesn’t seem like much, maybe it’s not the best to read, but it is fun for me to reflect on how this one verse has played a big part in my life. I have been in the Word more this year than ever before.
Because of my back issues, pain medications and struggling with all of that I have found it possible to be closer to God on a daily basis. So the most I have learned is that He will use every opportunity, if we allow, to bring Him glory!
All Things are Possible With God
