Good Morning Girlfriends,

Thanks so much for ALL of your prayers regarding our daughter Brooke. She met with her surgeon on Friday and the pathology reports were all negative! We were concerned because there is a long history of cancer in my family. God is so good!

God wants you to trust him each day even when it may feel he is asking you to trust him for the impossible. God has promised to help you accomplish and endure.

I know how busy our lives in ministry can be and I also know how many burdens we carry for others as pastor’s wives and women in ministry. But God never intended for you and I to do this thing alone. We will not accomplish what God has called us to do in our own strength. We will become weary, discouraged and worn out and often times those feelings cause people to leave the ministry.

No matter what you are walking through today, God is able. I know I repeat this often but He has proved over and over again in my own life how BIG and awesome he truly is. Mother Teresa wrote, “God will never, never, never let us down if we have faith and put our trust in Him. He will always look after us. So we must cleave to Jesus. Our whole life must simply be woven into Jesus.”

When you enter into friendships your trust develops over time. At the beginning of your relationship with Christ you may trust Him for things that are not likely to happen without his intervention. As you trust God for bigger and bigger things, your faith expands as you mature in God and we learn to trust for the impossible.

George Mueller’s trust in God was tested to the limit. He operated a number of orphanages in nineteenth-century England, housing two thousand children at one time. He was criticized for giving unfair advantage to the poor and his ministry to the children came under scrutiny. It became well known that he did not ask for donations and often there was no food in the pantry to prepare meals for the orphans. But George Mueller instructed the children to take their place at the tables, totally trusting God would provide. And God always came through. Whatever was needed always arrived at the door at the right time.

I don’t know what many of you are facing today. I don’t feel the pain some of you are experiencing today regarding your ministry but I serve an almighty God who is capable of doing the impossible in your life.

1 Peter 5:7, Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. Ask God for the impossible today then trust him for the miracle. We are on a faith journey and God will provide!

Praying for you today friend. May God bless you and do the impossible in your life and ministry!

Love and appreciate you,
