Do You Feel Overwhelmed?

when-the-impossible-meets-godAs I looked at my prayer list this morning, I felt overwhelmed. The needs are so great, and some of the situations seem absolutely impossible. Some are evil. Some are hurtful. Some are heart-wrenching. Many are beyond human help.

While feeling overwhelmed, I began singing this old chorus:

Got any rivers you think are uncrossable?
Got any mountains you can’t tunnel through?
God specializes in things thought impossible,
And He will do what no other power can do.

Faith and prayer make the impossible possible, even when our faith is the size of a mustard seed. There are times the process can crawl at a snail’s pace, but that does not change the fact that we serve the God who makes the impossible possible.

Are you facing something impossible today? Sing your faith! Speak His word aloud!  Remember whose child you are. It “ain’t” over until He has the final word!  Marvelous things happen when the impossible meets the God of the possible.

Rather than being overwhelmed by life, I choose to be overwhelmed by God!

“God is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine” (Ephesians 3:20). “With God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26). “We are more than conquerors through Him that loved us” (Romans 8:37).
