Impossible

First, some housecleaning. Many of you (okay maybe one) may have wondered where I have been. I haven’t commented on any of your comments here nor have I been leaving comments on your blogs (if you have one).  It is true I have been busy but the real reason isn’t nearly as virtuous as that. 🙂

Truth: the church’s internet has been down for two days. Talk about being hamstrung! About a month ago it went down for close to 3 days. I won’t mention our carrier’s name, but Comcast didn’t do us any favors. One of our own guys (techgeek) had to get our internet up and running. But for reasons we had no clue about, it kept cutting in and out. Odd hours. Odd length of time. Wednesday morning around 5:30 it gave up the ghost. It took us until Thursday afternoon to get it back. I do have to hand it to Comcast for expediting that. Sort of hard to run a business without it. Since I don’t have a computer at home…and since I despise typing on my phone…I read only.

So now you know the rest of the story.

My sermon Sunday is taken from 2 Chronicles 20 where Jehoshaphat faced the Ammonites and Moabites in a seemingly impossible situation. We might say he faced a mountain and had no clue what to do. He couldn’t go around it; under it; over it; or through it.

Often we are defeated by those seemingly impossible situations which want to take us down and stomp on us. Life after divorce. Life after a death. Life after losing a job. Life after watching our world fall apart. We feel overwhelmed. Just like Jehoshaphat. His story, though, is one of the Impossible becoming a testimony to the Possible of God.

Thanks for your prayers. One of my posts next week will give the five steps Jehoshaphat took to make this a reality.

    So much for loving your enemies. Does this story mean God wants us to have lots and lots of Jewelry?

      ?? You are assuming God expects us to lie down and let our enemies walk all over us, especially when they were the aggressor. The jewelry was spoils of war left behind.

    Prayers are with you, Bill! Looking forward to reading the five steps!

  4. With God, the impossible does become possible! Looking forward to the story of King Jehoshaphat, and praying for you, Bill.
    Blessings!

    It’s good to get a break no matter how it comes about!

    Praying for you and your peeps, Bill!

  6. Dan says:

    “but our eyes are on you.” (2 Chron 20:12)

    That part of the verse stuck out to me during your sermon. After talking about getting overrun, being powerless against such a great horde, and not knowing what to do, there was the “but”…and leading the army with the choir! What statements of faith!
