I have been considering participating in this this year and really keeping focused on these changes in my life and allowing God to speak to me in a way that I can truly hear. I started with One Word last year and honestly, I can’t even remember the word I chose, oops!
So this year I decided that perhaps writing on a verse that has stood out to me would be a great idea as I continue to walk this path with Christ.
Choosing which verse to use was another story. After all, how many verses have I read in the past year and where do I even begin in picking one?
I began with searching through saved quotes and highlighted notes and this proved to be fruitful as one verse seemed to be on repeat. So yesterday, when it was on my DaySpring Day Brightener as the last day of the year I knew that God wanted me to ponder this verse and use it in my daily life throughout 2015, and beyond.
That verse is Mark 10:27
All things are possible with God.
It is short and sweet but it is also words that I KNOW I need to focus more on. Each time I think that something isn’t possible I am losing faith and hope. When we lose faith and hope we are saying we don’t trust God, and that separation gives Satan a crack to crawl into and a warm place for him to grow like some fatal bacteria for our souls striving to pry us apart and keep us from experiencing His truth, joy and love.
And, like a parent looking down at their infant sleeping, our Father whispers our names, counts the hairs on our heads, takes away our pains, and tells us He loves us.
Then, we realize, all things really are possible with God!
