anything is possible

Our refuge and our strength Posted by Picasa

i've been reading through the bible this year ... i am now in the New Testament ...

i am using a New Living Testament translation, with notes by Greg Laurie in it ... it helps to see verses that i have read in a certain translation, written another way ... and Greg's comments give me things to think on ...

"Victory is not obtained through evacuation" Winston Churchill said ... to which Greg Laurie added, "Don't retreat from your problems, but ask God to help you face and overcome them ... "

Jesus said, "Anything is possible, if a person believes." Mark 9:23b

maybe i've set my bar too low? i have been settling for just finishing the race! to hang in there on the dark days ... hmmmm... i am giving myself something to think on ... even as i type this ...

i want to OBEY Him ... and it may mean stepping out of the boat!

He WILL pull me out of the depths, if i have bitten off more than i can chew!
