“Jesus replied, ‘What is impossible with men is possible with God.’”
What greater thing is there than nurturing and giving life? Ask a mother who nurtured a child for nine months and then spent whatever number of hours, if not days, in pain to push the baby into the world. Not an easy task…in that moment she cannot imagine how she will be able to push an 8lb baby out of her. To her it is virtually impossible to visualize. But, she trusts the doctors and takes their word that it is possible and will happen. So, she endures the pain and pushes until the baby is born. Once that child is in her arms…the nine months of nurturing and hours of labor pain is a long forgotten memory. The blessing is in her arms and quickly captivates her attention.
Well, we are all walking around pregnant…yes….we are pregnant, preparing to birth blessings God has placed in us and promised for us. Although we can’t visibly see our pregnancy, the blessing is growing inside of us none the less….its kicking us so much that we can’t sleep at night. It is growing stronger and soon it’s “birth” date will arrive. Soon we feel the leap in our belly and begin to feel or recognize the signs that our blessing is coming.
But, can we imagine it really happening. We look at our circumstance, the environment and can’t see a blessing coming into this space. You know what I mean…our challenges, setbacks, heartbreak, pain, lack, loss, etc. How is a blessing going to come into this situation?
Don’t you realize that that’s actually your labor pain? Just like a woman’s labor pain serves as an indication that the baby is about to be birthed, your personal labor pain serves as sign that your blessing is about to be birthed. The greater the pain, the closer you are to giving birth to your blessing.
God wants us to not look at our situation and see the impossible. He wants us to trust Him and have faith that what seems impossible to man is possible for Him. We must believe that nothing is too hard for God. Believe that God is not a man that He should lie. If He has promised it, then it will come to pass. So, start to P.U.S.H. (Pray Until Something Happens). Soon, you will be holding your blessing and all the labor pain will be a distant memory.
Walk in faith; live in love,
Who is Monica Wood aka Mo Wood? This is a loaded question. Monica Wood is one who faith walks even when she doesn’t want to…or at least that is what I am told. Through trial and error I have made some mistakes – not many are visible – but all have left scars and traumatic war wombs. It is through the scars that I have learned what kind of faith I have and what kind of God I serve as I walk by faith, not by sight. And, for close to 4 years now I have been led to share some of my scars during a season of “transparency” in the form of my devotionals – Mo Moments.
