On the Road Again

Cliches are cliches for a reason. They are overused truisms because they are true. For instance, life is a journey not a destination. It’s just true—how we get there is more
important than arriving.

Sometimes, before we can ask God to do the impossible through us, we have to allow Him to do the impossible in us. That’s been my story. Before I could pray for God to move in a mighty way on my behalf, He and I had to tend to some personal prerequisites. I carried some emotional and spiritual wounds that needed His healing. I thought I would always walk around with a gaping gash in my soul; I didn’t even hope that healing was possible. I cozied up to the consequences of my past sin, never believing freedom and wholeness were viable options.

But, I was wrong. Today, I’m completely healed of past hurt and past sins. I thought wholeness was an impossibility for me. Not so with our God.

I see my story in the crippled beggar in Acts 3. Although the beggar’s healing was physical and mine was emotional and spiritual, it was no less miraculous or complete. And, like the beggar, I can now walk and jump and praise Him as I travel life’s highway and discover His call on my life. God did the impossible for the beggar. He did the impossible for me. And now, He wants to do the impossible in you.
