Google gives you possibilities. God’s Word gives you certainties.
God is not calling you to do the impossible. He is calling you to do the possible. Commit to do the possible and trust God to do the impossible.
Jesus told them, “This is the only WORK God wants from you: Believe in the one he has sent.”
Be thankful for the days when you have to “go it alone.” They will give you a greater appreciation for the days you have help and reveal to you just how much you can truly accomplish.
Striving for perfection? Falling short?
The only true way you can aim for perfection is to aim for Christ. Aim to reveal the love of Christ to others. And when you fall short (and we all fall short), aim to reveal His humble heart. Desire perfection by desiring Christ.
You will find that even your imperfections become part of His perfect plan.
Thankfulness is powerful. Peace and joy ride on its wings.
Today consider all the things in your life that you should be thankful for. Consider the things you don’t have. Are you healthy? Others are battling sickness. Did you have food to eat for breakfast? Others did not. Did you have a hard time deciding what to wear today? For some there is no decision. Did you have a bad hair day? Some have no hair, their therapy has caused it to all fall out. Did you lock the door of your home on your way to work? Some have no home nor job to go to. Did you get in a car to continue your travels? Some have no car. Did you kiss your spouse and kids in the morning? Some have no spouse or kids. Meeting a friend for lunch? Some have no friends… And what else can you be thankful for?
Consider all that you have and be thankful, truly thankful.
