Nothing Is Impossible
Luke 1:1-38 Inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile a narrative of the things that have been accomplished among us...

think about it.
What kind of people were Zechariah and Elizabeth (1:5-9)? How does Zechariah respond to the angel's message (1:18)? Why? What is Elizabeth's response (1:25)? How do you respond when God answers a long-term prayer? What does Mary's reaction to the message she receives tell you about her faith and her obedience? What kind of obedience to God do you demonstrate?
I love the Christmas story. So I was definitely smiling today because we're reading the beginning of the Christmas story from Luke's perspective. As I started, I was wondering just what I would blog on from this very familiar story. Well when I got to verse 37, I knew. The angel Gabriel has told Mary about her pregnancy and is now telling her about Elizabeth being pregnant. Gabriel concludes with these beautiful words, "For nothing is impossible with God."
Now I thought about Gabriel's words and landed here. It's easy for us to read those words and nod our heads in agreement, but do we truly believe them, and do our actions reflect that thinking? Knowing that NOTHING is impossible with God, is there something you can turn over to Him today? Tami W.
