There are many times that I experience #SayWhat moments in my life. God spends a lot of time speaking to me but I am not always listening. I am sure that God is wondering when I am going to give up my agenda and follow his. Today I am revisiting a post from the archives titled “Impossible Possibilities”. For all of those times that you would rather give up than push through and say “Yes to God”, I hope these words provide encouragement and the desire to persevere through the impossible possibilities. Listen intently and seek God and when you are asking God “are you talking to me? are you sure?”, I know that God will reveal all that’s needed for your #SayWhat moment.
My #SayWhat moment came last fall when I was taken out of one job and placed into another one. This was not my choice and it was a very difficult situation. I know I questioned God with “say what and who me?” at least 100 times during this month long process. The amazing part of this redesign is that it truly was God’s redesign and plan. My new job has given me such joy and through the pain God assured me multiple times that He was right beside me. The encouragement and healing that I received by fully understanding what impossible possibilities are and how God promises us all we need when we totally surrender to Him helped me to persevere. May the words in this post do the same for you.
For several years now one word has been used as my mantra over and over again – “perseverance”. The word is framed on my bookshelf, it frequently appears in Bible verses that I am reading and it is the theme of many Bible studies and book studies that I have completed. I know the word perseverance is key to how I should live my life but I haven’t fully understood the strength behind the word.
The Free Dictionary defines perseverance in two ways. Below are those two definitions.
perseverance [ˌpɜːsɪˈvɪərəns] n
2. (Christian Religious Writings / Theology) Christianity persistence in remaining in a state of grace until death
I would love to hear how you persevere and what verses you cling to when the impossibilities of your life are greater than what God has promised!

Wow did I ever need to hear this today…the Lord will help me to persevere. Thank you for the reminder.
The hardest part for me is totally surrendering all to God. The word persevere is such a strong word and I feel such power in just saying the word. May God bless you in your quest for perseverance of Him.
I adored the image you used of God framing your face in His hands and could feel the pull as you wanted to turn away. Following our Lord is not always easy, but its is always worth it!! Thanks for sharing and have a blessed day!!

Thank you Trish! I agree that saying “yes” creates challenges but oh so many blessings as well.
I had not thought of the power behind “perseverance” either! I love this: ” Holding on tight to God’s promises is where perseverance meets impossibilities” – with Him all things truly are possible!!! Thank you for sharing! 🙂
Thank you! Blessings to you!
