Onward with the 30 days of Sparkle, Light for December’s Path…(link at right)
It might sound simplistic but having my 30 day booklet at the bedside when I wake up each day has made an incredible difference so far this month. This has been an eye opener as my normal routine is to get up and go to my reading corner with my coffee and Bible. It’s there in my little corner of the world that I listen quietly each morning, pray and journal before I get going with the day. But…and here is the difference…. I usually check my text messages and quickly scan my emails, often check Twitter news headlines BEFORE I settle in my corner. In all honesty my first focus of the day is outward, not inward and upward. My to-do list, or worry list takes root long before my upward focus begins!
This hadn’t concerned me much because I have a set apart time each morning with the Father. It’s life giving, sweet and necessary for me to go through my day following Him. But, what I didn’t realize is that it’s much different to fix my eyes and attention on something true and encouraging the moment I wake up. First thing!
This morning I turned off the alarm, rolled over and picked up my little paper pamphlet up off the bedside stand.
Day 9, ALL THINGS POSSIBLE.
“For nothing is impossible with God.” Luke 1:37
My mind literally smiled as my eyes focused on that truth. My heart felt lighter remembering the day’s theme, and repeating it as I got my legs out of bed and made my way to actually waking up.
Al Things are possible. Thank you Jesus that what seems impossible is possible with you. You are the God of possibilities! My heart was beginning to soar. All things possible, nothing impossible. Yes!
Then off to the coffee and prayer time a bit later. But my heart was fixed, first thing, on the truth that nothing is impossible with Jesus. Good for my heart, food for my soul, stability for my mind.
This morning my corner is my friends beautiful living room in Bakersfield, CA. In just a bit I will be at the Country Club visiting with women at their Christmas Brunch and speaking to those women about another nugget: Forget Not! ( Psalm 103) Pay Attention to His benefits….and my dear friends, one of his benefits as that HE is ABLE to make all things possible in our lives!
I smile as I keep celebrating victory in the food/weight area. After cancer my weight was at an all time high and part of the protocol for breast cancer is to lose weight if you are overweight. My inflammation was also sky high. My dr. said a very strict protocol would change things. I remember telling him, “ I can’t do that!” But God….it’s been eight months today since I started THAT lifestyle change and I did reach the goal. 45 lbs! How? Nothing is impossible with God. He made it possible. He gave me strength.
What is your area of impossible today?
Tell yourself the truth: ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!
