What if it feels impossible?

Matthew 19:26
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

We’ve all experienced right? We’ve tried to do something and tried and tried and then finally had to turn to someone else for help.  Usually it is the jar of the pickles lid or starting the lawn mower.  There is usually some special trick that someone else knows…in my house its usually my husband … and then that nearly impossible task is accomplished and we can go about our day.

How do you eat healthy on the go

But sometimes we need to step back and realize that our task is beyond the power of anyone here on earth and we have to turn to God for that. Maybe we are dealing with a health issue -- cancer, Hypothyroid, Hashimotos, ADHD; maybe we are struggling with a relationship with our spouse, child, sister, brother, friend; maybe infertility, pregnancy loss, or the loss of a child; Financial struggles; trying to lose weight or get fit, a flat tire, a bounced check, a toddler throwing a tantrum..... LIFE!!!
—- all of this is out of our control and we need to remember that we need to turn to God.  

Sometimes we think we need to do it ourselves. We want to be "tough" or "strong" and that's just plum silly! Why would we want to face these struggles on our own when we can rely on God.

Whether you are dealing with a simple struggle or the largest of challenges, He is there for us!

When was the last time you tried to do it yourself and forgot (or ignored!!) God? How did that workout for you? ....did it workout better once you let it go and Let God?
