Am I the only one who feels like life is downright impossible some days? Like it’s just too much to handle, and I can’t possible go on.
I was talking to God about this in my prayer journal the other day. I’ve been up to my neck in deadlines. I’m barely turning in my writing assignments on time.
I basically feel like I am one puking kid away from everything falling apart.
I was complaining to God about how impossible it all seems when something stopped me. It was as if that word — impossible — jumped off the page. And almost immediately I heard this verse in my head:
“For nothing will be impossible with God.” Luke 1:37
That’s the thing about inputting Scripture into your mind. God can use it with uncanny timing to bring you back to reality. It was clear to me what he was saying.
“Life is impossible — impossible without Me.”
When I stray too far from my Savior — the maker of possible — I feel it.
I sense the green, poisonous mist of impossible seeping in through the cracks, weighing heavy on my heart. It wakes me up at night and leaves me feeling like I can’t catch my breath.
Life is impossible.
The only way to handle it — the only way to make it feel possible again — is to meet God in prayer. To hand it over to Him.
So I pictured handing God the impossible moments of my life — the deadlines, heartaches, and stresses. I imagined him spinning it around in His hands at light speed, transforming it from impossible to possible — from problems to peace.
And I realized that when life feels impossible, that’s the perfect trigger — the exact reminder — that I need to turn it all over to God.
Stop and pray. Get silent and listen. Let God take the impossible and turn it into the possible.
