John 5:30-47 “By myself I can do nothing…” (v.30a NIV)

About 5 1/2 years ago, the doctors basically told me to either change the way I was living or risk dying. The doctors informed me that I was 100 pounds overweight. I realized that my entire lifestyle had to change. So, I learned to eat properly, exercise daily, and get enough sleep each night.

However, as I stepped on the scale each week, I became overwhelmed and discouraged. Some weeks I had only lost one pound. I thought, “At this rate I’m never going to lose 100 pounds!” I admit that there were times that I wanted to give up. As my walk with God deepened, I began to realize that I wasn’t alone. God, wanted me healthy! His Word told me: “For nothing is impossible with God” (Luke 1:37). I prayed for a steadfast spirit to sustain me (Psalm 51) as I continued on the journey. I leaned on God and lost the weight.

Is there some circumstance in your life that seems impossible? Remember that with God all things are possible! He is your strength!

Genesis 16:15—17:14; Psalm 50; Hebrews 10:1-10

Until next time blessings and healing
