Impossible or Possible?

Luke 18:27 says, "What is impossible for people is POSSIBLE with God." There have been many things in my life that have seemed like impossible situations. With people in charge, these situations were impossible, but with God, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!

If you had asked me a year ago if my dad would go on my mom's annual Ukraine mission trip, I would have said that is impossible. My dad loves the Lord, and I believe that he respected and admired mine and my mother's passion for overseas missions. No matter the reason (money, time, circumstances, etc...), it just never worked out for him to go. Well, like I said, with God, all things are possible. My parents left Kharkov this morning, and I cannot even begin to explain what a pleasure and honor it was to serve the Lord alongside both of my parents. We have been on mission trips together before but never one to this magnitude. It brought joy and happiness to my heart having them both here.

If you had told me a year ago that I would be able to count to twenty and say nearly 15 words in Russian, I would have looked at you like you were crazy. I can actually identify some words that people are using. I have been so blessed to have several people take the time to teach me some important phrases and conversational skills. By myself, I could never
have learned as much as I have. It is only through God.
"Sto nevazmoshna dle lude to vazmoshna bogo." Luke 18:27 (in Russian) I can say a verse in Russian! This seemed so impossible to me just a few weeks ago!

I never expected to experience such joy and excitement as I have these past two weeks! I have seen God move in miraculous ways! The Mississippi team comes to provide a medical clinic and to plant seeds, but year after year of consistent seed planting brought such an amazing blessing upon this team. We were able to see 10 (yes, that is TEN) people make a profession of faith this week. SLAVABOHU! (Praise the Lord)

I could have never gotten to Ukraine on my own. God provided every step of the way. It was such a humbling feeling to be walking through a Ukrainian village inviting the people to a FREE medical clinic. They were so shocked that Americans had come to their small village to tell them about Jesus and give them something at no cost to them.

My Aunt Diann and Karen Connerly gave out reading glasses all week. Each patient would sit down at their table and be given a pair of glasses to try on. They were asked to read John 3:16 until they tried on the perfect pair of glasses. This one man on Thursday found a pair that he liked, and he asked how much they cost. My aunt and Karen were able to say that the glasses are a free gift just like God's gift of salvation is free to all people! Tears welled up in my eyes as I watched this scene taking place.

We as humans so quickly forget what an awesome God we serve. We look at a mountain and think it could never be moved, but God says that absolutely NOTHING is impossible with Him. Our God can heal the sick, make the lame to walk, and give sight to the blind! Our God has no boundaries or limits! He is sovereign, and He is almighty!

Until the whole world hears,
"Look around at the nations; look and be amazed! For I am doing something in your own day, something you wouldn't believe even if someone told you about it."
