"CONNECTING PEOPLE TO GOD"
to Living Water Baptist Church
of Memphis, Tennessee. We are a church organized for the
glory of God and built upon the sole foundation of the Lord
Connecting People to
God is our Responsibility!
He who is in you is greater than he who is in the
world. —1 John 4:4
“It’s not going to happen,
Aunt Julie. You might as well erase that thought from your
“I know it’s unlikely,” I said. “But it’s not impossible.”
For several years, my niece and I have had variations of
that conversation regarding a situation in our family. The
rest of the sentence, which I said only occasionally, was
this: “I know it can happen because I hear stories all the
time about how God makes impossible things happen.” The
part of the sentence I said only to myself was this: “But
they happen only in other people’s families.”
Recently my pastor has been preaching from the book of
Ephesians. At the end of every service we say this
“Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than
all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at
work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in
Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever
and ever! Amen” (Eph. 3:20-21 niv).
This was the year God chose to do “immeasurably more” in
my family. He replaced indifference with love. How did He
do it? Beats me. But I saw it happen. And why should I be
surprised? If Satan can turn love into indifference,
certainly God can change indifference back into love.
Lord, thank You for doing immeasurably more in
our lives than we could ever imagine.
I am so thankful that You are able and often
do make impossible situations possible.
God’s power to restore is
stronger than Satan’s power to destroy.
