Nothing is Impossible for God

                Many times we give up too fast and forget that God has given us a destiny to follow using our talents that he has given each of us. Unfortunately, we believe that the road to our dreams may be far off and impossible to obtain. Throughout life, we tend to forget that God can always open doors for us along the path he has laid out for us. However, we must have faith and belief in what God can do for us, as we pursue our dreams.

The first memory verse is: Matthew 19:26-But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, with men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. (KJV)

Nothing is impossible with God, so take time to get to know him as your heavenly father and strengthen your faith in him. Additionally, begin studying the Holy Bible, which is God’s letter of love to you and your family. You can begin strengthening your faith and your relationship with your heavenly father, by taking time out to study God’s word daily. Studying allows you to learn how God has helped others he loves, as well as learning how he can help you.

Always pray to your heavenly father daily and allow God to handle your burdens, instead of trying to fix them yourself. He can guide you in the ways that will help you succeed in chasing your dreams, but don’t forget about God after you have found your success. Remember, God knows your heart and he can take your success away. Especially, if it begins to separate you from him, because you know that he is a jealous God.  

The second memory verse is: Luke 18:27-And he said, the things which are impossible for men are possible with God. (KJV)

Sometimes, you need to be reminded that God has a purpose for you, because you may lose your faith during everyday life. In addition, you tend to move away from God during the good times in our lives and run to him for help during the crisis and trials we may face in our daily lives. Remember that nothing is impossible with God on your side, so walk proud and know the he has a plan for you. Allow him to guide throughout life’s ups and downs, while following the plan that he has created just for you.

Start including God in on every decision you make, by praying first and waiting on his response to you. Knowing God can help you chase your dreams, as well as removing any obstacles which may pop up throughout your journey. Additionally, trust God to provide all that you need to make your dreams come true. No matter what dream God has given you, remember that the he promises that nothing is impossible for him.
