Yesterday marked the 100th posting for this blog. When I first decided to write this blog, it was sort of a whim. My oldest daughter had begun a food blog and my husband suggested I write a blog about green smoothies. Now I do drink green smoothies, but I can’t think about that much to write about them, except that you blend up some greens, some fruit, a liquid and drink it up for good health. And I can assure you that nobody is interested in my green smoothie recipes. I drink them and some are pretty good, most are ok and some aren’t so great at all. Fact is my wonderful husband won’t even drink them! So while I believe that our physical health is important I believe that our spiritual health is even more important. I decided instead to write a daily devotional blog. I had already written a few things and thought I would start out with posting those and hopefully new ideas would pop into my head when I needed them. I’ll have to admit at first the thought of disciplining myself to write daily was scary to say the least. I generally start out with good intentions, move on to getting bored and quitting, then jump to the next thing that catches my interest at the moment. I’ll have to admit for about the first three months I was tense about having a new thought to write about every day. But now I’m not worried about it at all. After all I did tell God at the beginning of this that I would write whatever He wanted me to and while in theory I knew that God doesn’t run out of ideas I now know it in practicality. Sometimes as I am doing something during the day a spiritual application pops into my head for it. Other times if I need an idea, I just say so and an idea comes to mind. Once I told God I would like to write more ‘Richard and Jane’ parables and all of a sudden I had five ideas for those. Should I have been surprised? No. Jeremiah 32:27 tell us, “Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?” But despite such texts I was surprised at the speed of His answer. To me of all people! I’m just an average, ordinary, introverted, stay at home mom.
The point of my ramblings today? There is nothing, absolutely NOTHING, too hard for God. If He can provide ideas for this little blog on a daily basis, then think of the things He can do in your life. Just ask Him. Today.
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26
Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know. Jeremiah 33:3
