From Impossible to Doable

Hudson Taylor, who was a missionary to China, said  “I have found that there are three stages in every great work of God: first, it is impossible, then it is difficult, then it is done.”

His words resonated and I thought about my own struggles, especially to get healthy.  What first felt impossible is now just difficult.  However, it has taken years of working to change bad habits and negative thoughts and change them into good habits and positive thoughts. 

Although things are difficult, I have to believe that one day it will done.  If I don’t give up and keep pressing forward and asking the Lord to guide me each step of the way, than nothing is impossible. One day I will meet my goals.

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

Jesus told us that nothing is impossible with him. 

So even when it is a struggle and we want to throw in the towel, ask the Lord for help and remember Paul’s words “Keep pressing forward.” {Philippians 3:14}

Where has pressing forward brought you?
