The God of the impossible

“God is looking for people through whom He can do the impossible. What a pity when we plan only the things we can do by ourselves.” -- A.W. Tozer

Our whole adult lives, Rich and I have lived on the "edge".

Never an ounce of security

No plan B

Giving up everything to follow in Jesus' footsteps,

living out the Gospel


Seemingly foolishly.

We've laid EVERYTHING down for JESUS

Not held back ANYTHING.

Given him our lives like an empty check that HE can fill in whatever he likes.

Go where he wants us to go,
Do what he wants us to do,
Give what he wants us to give,.

In a way, it's been an exhilarating way to live

it feels so FREE!

And oh - the experiences we made along the way! WOW!!!!

In another way, it's kept us on our toes knees.

and - not gonna lie - 

it's been plain HARD, too.

It seems like we've been walking on water with the vision/projects God's laid on our hearts.

Beyond ourselves
our capacities, possibilities, resources

Nothing's changed, really, even now.

I don't know if you've noticed, but I changed the quote on the right-hand side bar of my blog (see quote above).
Little did I know that once again, a situation was going to creep up on us that would require - once again - a huge step of faith.

Definitely in the "planning what we cannot do by ourselves"- category


Time for YOU to do the IMPOSSIBLE!
