said the mama bird to the little bird...

I have been confronted by alot of "impossibilities" lately.  i confess that I have not always met those challenges with much faith or even desire to have faith. 
Today I have been thinking of one of the special mentors that God put in my life.  Her name was Norrine Senters.  She has been in heaven for awhile now but her influence in my life goes on!  I can remember her singing a song to me, on a day I really did not want her to even talk to me, let alone sing to me!  The whole song is written below.  She sang the chorus like 4 times till I stopped walking away, uncrossed my arms, cried and then we prayed together about the "impossible!"  So for you Norrine, I put it God's hands one more time and wait for Him to do the impossible!
I read in the Bible the promise of God,
That nothing for Him is too hard;
Impossible things He has promised to do,
If we faithfully trust in His Word.

Nothing is impossible when you put your trust in God;
Nothing is impossible when you're trusting in His Word.
Hearken to the voice of God to thee:
'Is there anything to hard for Me?'
Then put your trust in God alone and rest upon His Word;
For ev'rything, O ev'rything,
Yes, ev'rything is possible with God.

The Word of the Lord is an anchor secure
When winds of uncertainty blow;
Tho man in his weakness may falter and fail,
His Word will not fail us we know.

'All things are possible,' this is His Word.
Receive it, 'tis written for you:
Believe in His promises, God cannot fail,
For what He has said, He will do.

Creator of all things, with infinite pow'r.
He spoke! They appeared by His mouth;
Impossible things are not known unto Him,
He made us, He ruleth the earth.
