Mark 9:23-24

"Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou my unbelief."
Mark 9:23-24

This, again, is amazing. :)  All things are possible to him that believeth.  "yeah yeah" we say... "faith moves mountains... la la la,"  but do we really perceive the possibilities here?  so often we reject things as impossible... but all things are possible to him that believeth.  ALL things.  I mean, I think that God has to go along with it too... which might prevent you from believing in a few things... but since God has a bigger imagination than any of us, I think anything good can apply. :)  I love the father in this scripture too... he wants to believe, and knows that there are some doubts in there... and asks for help.  We can do that too.  We are limited in faith... like Peter, sometimes we doubt and we start to sink... but as we diligently observe the amazing miracles in life... the awe-inspiring beauty in the world around us... the infinite variety of people and ideas... the miraculous things that happen to us every single day... we learn belief, and faith.  Returning to the scripture of yesterday... "believeth all things, hopeth all things."  _Nothing_ is impossible.  Not if we have God on our side. :)  Don't think for a second that what God has done for Moses and the Brother of Jared... and for this father... he won't do for you.  He will.  He loves us, and wants more than anything, our happiness.  There is always hope to be found, even in the darkest dungeons of the soul.  All things are possible to him that believeth.  Let's believe... and ask God to help our unbelief. :)
