THANKFUL THURSDAY...surely our God is able!

I tried moving a very large piece of furniture by myself, but I failed. It was too heavy, it was too hard for just one person to do.

 Have you ever tried to do something that was just too hard?

For instance, have you ever wondered if you could  lift up a car off of a crushed person? Would you be able to find a lost pearl ring buried in the sand at the beach? Seem impossible to do?

You may not have had to do either of those difficult things, but many of you have been faced with some other very hard things in life. Hard things like the loss of a job, sickness and even death. All of these are difficult for us to bear, but for God, there is nothing too difficult. Even in the loss of jobs and in the loss of a loved one, God is able to see us thru.

Jeremiah 32:17 (ESV)"Ah, Lord GOD! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you."

Jeremiah recognized that no matter how much he exercised his muscles that it was God, not him, that was the strong man. God can easily arm wrestle any need that we have. He did it for Jeremiah and He will do it for us.

God made the heavens and the earths for Pete's sake...what could we possibly have that could be harder than that for God? He holds everything in His palm, not just the stars and the moon, but He also holds our sorrows, our fears, our trials, and our tears in His palm.

If we can trust Him for the heavens and the earth and all that is in it, then why can we not trust Him with everything else? Things may seem difficult and too hard for you my friend, but trust me, nothing that you face today is too difficult for God. Surely He is able....



With the Thanksgiving holiday coming in just 2 short weeks, I am reminded that some of us are in a battle right now. Some of us are struggling financially. And some of us will not have family, friends or even a turkey to share a meal with on Thanksgiving Day. Even in the midst of our despair, we must remember that He is able. He will meet our needs and He will provide. I don't know how. I don't know when. But I know that He will. I am so thankful today that nothing is too difficult for Him!

Today is THANKFUL THURSDAY, please join your grateful heart with ours as we all link up our TT posts here today. If you are in a situation that is too difficult for you, listen to the song that I have uploaded from Gaither Homecoming, may it remind you that surely our God is able!

So true that God does provide, we just need to trust Him! And we need to be ready for whatever He puts on our plates today, rather than worrying about tomorrow!

It is so very true that we are sometimes faced with hard things, but that nothing is too hard with His help.

personally, I am having a difficult time with budgeting time and decluttering my home. These, I suppose, are selfish pursuits, but they are things I feel I need to do in order to be a better mom and wife. On the days when I remember to take the "me" out of trying, to pray through my minute-to-minute choices and to ask that He bless all I do, things go so much smoother...

I just love that!! Such a good reminder!
