Day #6 – The Bigger Picture

Only 25 days to go! Is that really possible? This morning as our alarms went off Dominic rolled over and said, “Soon our alarm will be a baby and we won’t have to listen to these crazy alarm songs.” OMG, he’s right!

It is really easy to get tied up in all the little things when preparing for baby. It is easy to feel overwhelmed and alone. It is easy to lose sight of the big picture when many things seem impossible. Luckily my devotion this morning fit the bill and I feel much better. Nothing is too hard for God and that helps put things into perspective.

Nothing is Too Hard

“Is there anything too hard for Jehovah?” (Gen. 18:14).

Here is God’s loving challenge to you and to me today. He wants us to think of the deepest, highest, worthiest desire and longing of our hearts, something which perhaps was our desire for ourselves or for someone dear to us, yet which has been so long unfulfilled that we have looked upon it as only a lost desire, that which might have been but now cannot be, and so have given up hope of seeing it fulfilled in this life.

That thing, if it is in line with what we know to be His expressed will (as a son to Abraham and Sarah was), God intends to do for us, even if we know that it is of such utter impossibility that we only laugh at the absurdity of anyone’s supposing it could ever now come to pass. That thing God intends to do for us, if we will let Him.

“Is anything too hard for the Lord?” Not when we believe in Him enough to go forward and do His will, and let Him do the impossible for us. Even Abraham and Sarah could have blocked God’s plan if they had continued to disbelieve. The only thing too hard for Jehovah is deliberate, continued disbelief in His love and power, and our final rejection of His plans for us. Nothing is too hard for Jehovah to do for them that trust Him –Messages for the Morning Watch

Good morning baby … I’m never going to be the perfect mom. I’m going to try very VERY hard, but I’ve already come to the conclusion that most days I will fall short somewhere or another. But, you and I both have a Heavenly Father who is watching over us so my imperfections won’t ruin either of us. The things that seem overwhelming and impossible are not to Him and that is a wonderful thing to find hope, faith and a future in. I pray with all of my heart that you will find the same love and comfort in a relationship with Jesus Christ. Nothing matches the power of that relationship and your life will be forever changed when you make the crucial decision to follow Him.
