Nothing is Impossible with God

I've been through a lot of pain in my life. If you know my story, you know I've faced death of family, heartache and depression in my short years. Not long ago I was in so much emotional pain I wondered if I would ever be happy again. But my ultimate reality is knowing my Lord is a God who heals. And I can SMILE because He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. My message of hope is the same now as it was before I faced my greatest trials.

My passion doesn't change because my circumstances do.

God has called us to be creators and not creatures of our circumstance. The enemy whispers in my ear, "You can't survive the storm." I whispered back, "I AM the storm." I am an overcomer through Him who loves me.

I have many critics, and I get my heart broken; but I am so glad God never says, "This is the last time I am putting you together." And I am so glad a word God has never said is, "Oops." The architect of the universe did not build a stairway leading to nowhere.

Impossible is a word to be found only in the dictionary of fools.

With God nothing is impossible, including healing through heartbreak. We can smile and "live the dream," because God has a future and a HOPE for us. DON'T GIVE UP. When somebody tells you NO, it doesn't mean you can't do it. It just means you can't do it with them. When people tell you hope, dreams, joy and adventures with God are impossible, just remember: Impossible is more of a dare than a declaration. "Anything is possible to Him who believes."
