Everything Impossible

God does and is everything impossible. Oh, how I love that! I have been in a discussion about faith in God and His work in creation and you know, sometimes it is just so hard to explain faith to those who don't share it. It truly is "...the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen."  (Heb. 11:1) God is just like that, isn't He? I just love love love Him for that. How easy would our faith be if Jesus walked with us face to face here on this earth? How much would we have to trust in His saving, life-giving, purifying, providing hand?

The discussion has once again brought the quandry of faith versus sight into view. This is so key in our homeschools, isn't it? Our all-important faith is not something we can convince another of. It is truly a gift of God, lest we boast. Oh God, grant that my children walk in the faith you have so beautifully given me!

As I was sitting here working, I was listening to Mercy Me's album, Undone. The song, "Everything Impossible" just spoke to me! There are others who wonder and marvel at our Creator God! He is all we could ever need - even if we don't have all the answers. Let Him be praised. I hope you enjoy the lyrics as much as I. They met my heart tonight.

"Everything Impossible"

I was taught to be practical in everything I do
Holding on to what is tangible, and then came You
That's when I found myself so far away, from everything I knew
I took a leap of faith

Even though You're difficult for me to explain
I know I'll never be the same

You're everything I cannot see
You're everything I cannot say
I know it all seems so illogical
But that's okay
You're the love You give to me
You're the love I give away
You are everything impossible
And that's okay

That's okay!

All the things that make no sense to me, draw me to You
Like finding freedom by surrendering, can it be true
With everything I can and cannot know
This mystery is bringing life to me

And all this love I have for You I can't contain
I know I'll never be the same

You're everything I cannot see
You're everything I cannot say
I know it all seems so illogical
But that's okay
You're the love You give to me
You're the love I give away
You are everything impossible
And that's okay

That's okay

What's so hard to understand
What I cannot comprehend
Is that You love me the way I am

You're everything I cannot see
You're everything I cannot say
I know it all seems so illogical
But that's okay
You're the love You give to me
You're the love I give away
You are everything impossible
And that's okay

And that's okay

Hello,



I hope you don't mind getting messages from people you don't know! I got your page from the Reads because I am lookin for Aprons for Adoption, or at least catch up on the story. But the link doesn't seem to be working - unless it is our computer, which is possible :) I would love to hear, so if it's no trouble you can get to me through the Reads - my name is Annie. Thank you and God bless!

God is the impossible, He amazes me every single day. Love the lost tooth from the last post, she has got the most gorgeous eyes. I am wondering if that is actually the kind of color my tiny guy is going to have. His eye color has been so different from all the other kids and their deep brown/black eyes. I totally understand the too busy to blog thing, it seems to be happening to all of us! :-) Hugs!
