I Love a Good Mystery!

God of the Impossible


At choir tonight, we sang a new song by this title. It defined the situations in which I find myself.

The first part spoke of how the worst storm that would ever rage against me is nothing but a raindrop to the Lord. How the most difficult mountain I climb is a prairie.

God is so much bigger than any storms we will encounter.

He is God of impossibilities; they are nothing to Him. And I’m so thankful He is.

I stand at a precipice with a new ministry and a new career. Several times in the past week I’ve been struck with what do I think I’m doing? After confessing to my daughter about my worries, she gave me a side-long look. “Has the Lord brought you here, Mom?”

“Uh, I think so.”

“You think so?” She never misses anything. I know that that God has placed me in both situations. He’s made that very clear. And He’s urging me to let Him take care of the details and just be faithful to do as He guides.

And He sideswiped me with that lesson this morning as my twins and I studied a lesson in the book of Acts. One of the extra scriptures was 1 Samuel 10:6 where it says, “Do what your hand finds to do, for God is with you.”

Are you kidding me? I felt like I had a direct message – never mind the felt part! No matter how big, how dark, how desperate the circumstances, God is completely capable of taking care of them. He delights for His children to call on Him, to invite his presence and power. And when they (I) do, He calms them with is supernatural peace.

Your turn: What impossibles are you facing right now. God’s already taken care of them. He just hasn’t let you see how, yet.

She spends her days directing the children’s music program at her church and working with the authors of Write Integrity Press to put out the best possible version of their books. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience. After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.

  1. Hey Marji–great post and right on time. I spend much of my energy turning situations over to God’s capable hands. I believe I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be in His plan, whether or not I like it so. Though I believe nothing is impossible, I feel challenged with the following: finances; my mom’s current falls and me being the primary helper-outer; getting past an ongoing writer’s challenge; work and my attitude toward it. Prayer and knowing God is in control bring me peace. Thanks for sharing this.


  2. I love the scene in the Bible where Mary and Gabriel are having a little conversation.
    Mary looks up and says, “I don’t think you understand, Mr Angelman. I can’t be pregnant. I’ve never had sex with a man.”
    Gabriel’s mouth pulls up on the corners. “What you don’t understand, chosen one, is that the word ‘impossible’ isn’t in God’s vocabulary.”
    End of conversation.
