Running with Jesus  


Luke 18:27 And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.


     This has been a difficult week in the ministry.  I have never heard of so much hard things for families to deal with in life.  Daughter’s killed in accident by drunk driver, son has a wreck and car goes off a bridge and not found for 2 days.  Son kills himself, officer gunned down by robbers, who was a new mother, cancer found in someone new, a dad found dead in home and  all sorts of things that are almost more than you feel people can bear.   As a pastor’s wife it can be very stressful but I also have an opportunity to observe the responses of many of these problems thrown at us as we survive life in this fallen world.  I can see the difference in those who have a close walk with God.  They have a peace and comfort that passes all understanding.  Notice I said a close walk. These usually do not remain in an anger stage of grief and they seem to let it make them better and not bitter.

     We all have to deal with whatever life brings our way.  It is so much better when we don’t have to do it on our own. So my challenge is do you have someone to run through life with you.  When things you are dealing with look impossible to survive, remember what is impossible with man is possible with God.  He will not leave or forsake us. He understands our grief, pain and sorrow.  He can comfort us like no one else can. He can strengthen us when strength is gone.  He can give us hope when things look hopeless.  If we lean on Him and press into Him He will press into us.  Don’t lose heart today turn your eyes upon Jesus.  Don’t try to understand just simply trust the God who knows and understands.  Don’t turn away from God turn to Him.  He holds our tomorrows and He holds us.  Remembering is so important when running with God. Remembering He is our anchor when those storms roll in.


     Rest in Him when you feel you can’t make it, with God it is possible.


Father, thank You for giving us Your Words to remind us when we don’t know where to turn.  Thank You for being the all-knowing Father when we don’t know. Thank You for the help You have given us this day at this moment when we don’t know anything but trust and for making it possible for us to be able to go on running on life’s seas.


Tomorrow: Giving Jesus leftovers.
