A Womb and A Tomb? No Problem!

Expect a Miracle! 

That is a sign in my kitchen. I've lived my life by that expectation. Jesus Christ - the Miracle Doer - is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow; AND He is no respecter of persons. 

If you need a miracle in your life, let me encourage you with this. Claire Vorster  (of Claire's Teaparty) shared this quote on our churches' blog:

The life of Jesus is bracketed by two impossibilities: a virgin’s womb and an empty tomb. Jesus entered our world through a door marked No Entrance and left through a door marked No Exit.” ~ Peter Larson 
Then Claire wrote: 
So when you want to believe but you can’t, when you are plagued by a lie and cannot find comfort in the truth, when you are alone, when the darkness is closing in, here comes a humble Man riding on a donkey, see His Nail-scarred Hands reaching for yours.” ~ Claire Vorster
What impossibilities seem to have bracketed your life or the life of someone you love?  Don't keep your eyes on the "impossibles", keep them on The Nail-scarred Hands reaching for yours.

  With God, ALL things are possible! 
Dare to believe. It will no longer be impossible!

Because of Him and Unto Him,

So true - With God all things are possible.

We tend to forget that the perpetual motion of the cosmos that allows all life here on earth is God himself. It is a miracle to breathe at this very moment. Why would we doubt anything with God?

Thanks for the passionate reminder, Diane.

Beautiful words from Claire and you. Glad things are looking up a bit... Yes, all things. We need to keep that upper in our hearts. Thanks!

yes-one day HE road in, hearing words of Praise and shouts of Joy as Palms were waved in his honor.

One day HE was beaten, whipped, spat on, jeers and taunts thrown his way, as HE carried the Heaviest CROSS~
and endured The NAILS.

All done out of LOVE-for us. HIS hand is so worth reaching for.

Beautiful post. Beautiful.
