welcome to the world: caleb and joshua

“When God speaks, when He intervenes, when He permits a circumstance to rise up around you, it is your opportunity to write a story that people may still be talking about many years from now. Like those holy heroes of old from Scripture, your story of divine intervention – the one that brought you to your knees in frustration – could be the very thing that lifts others’ eyebrows in wonder and amazement at your strength and tenacity, the one that causes them to see the sparkle of substance, significance, and impact in your life. This could be the part of your story that encourages another to make their own decision to follow hard after God, perhaps rewriting the lines for their whole family, replacing a legacy of rebellion with a future of trusting faithfulness

So just go with it. Follow Him – impossible as it may seem. Let Him take you places, even to places you honestly don’t feel all that great about seeing firsthand. You may not grasp what He’s got in mind for this, but if you’ll follow where He’s leading, you will walk yourself right out onto the stage He has set for you. You will locate a significance bigger than you are because it’s not based on your own smarts and planning and goal strategies but rather on your utter submission to the Father’s eternal, all-wise plans – plans that are “higher than your ways” (Isa. 55:9), beyond anything you could “ask or think” or imagine (Eph. 3:20).”

–  Priscilla Shirer in Life Interrupted, p. 42

And so it is with the story of these two sweet boys, Caleb and Joshua, and their family who clung
to the Lord when they found themselves in the middle of a story they never anticipated would be written.

——————————————————————————————————————-

When the doctors are convinced that great trouble awaits:
Nothing is impossible with God.

When it seems like there is nothing that can be done, when hope is gone, look up:
Nothing is impossible with God.

When the world says, “It’s impossible!”
Oh my friend, nothing is impossible with God. 


When the doctors are in awe, when science can’t explain it. When the babies that weren’t supposed to make it are healthy, thriving, growing.
Rejoice in the miracle and remember:
Nothing, nothing  is impossible with God!

When the unexpected happens, when 4 turns into 6:
Truly, nothing is impossible with God.

 For nothing is impossible with God.
Luke 1:37
