Living the Impossible

One of the things Tim and I realized these past months, was we are really learning to trust God “daily”. We chose not to post too much photos about hungry children on the streets or faces of people we meet here. You won’t find those stories on this blog. We respect the people we come in contact here as well as the privacy of their lives. However, we want to tell you stories about how God is using us here, molding us and our children and hopefully, at some point, can encourage you in whatever you are going through with your life.

Life here isn’t easy but at the same, it is rewarding.  For the past weeks, this verse stood out to me…

“…I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you” – Matthew 17:20

It was impossible for us to even move here in the first place, not having enough support with only money we make from freelance work I do, sometimes we go through doubts and “did we make a mistake” moments. If we did, why did He allowed us to come here in the first place?

Yet He never changes. Even our minds shifted forward or backwards, He remains constant.


Peter stepped out into the unknown when Jesus called Him. But even after stepping out, Peter got afraid when he saw the wind. We’ve been in two situations in America where we felt the tip of a tornado. Both times, we saw how strong the winds were and it was chilling. The first one, we stopped under a bridge along OH-71 with other cars. When the wind slowly calmed down, we started moving and saw semis toppled down. Like Peter, we felt like walking on water these days. We felt like the wind is coming towards us and started to worry. There are times when we felt like sinking without any hand to take us up, hold us to recover. But Jesus said, “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” (Matthew 14:27)

“…He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul.” – Psalm 23: 2b-3a

It is impossible for us to be here, but through God, everything is possible. Take courage when you feel afraid. Take courage when doubts cloud your thoughts. Take courage when it feels impossible. He will lift you up, and lead you where you need to go.

“Lord, thank you for giving us courage when we feel like sinking. Help us to not be afraid of the unknown.”
