Side by Side with Jesus.                                                Pastor Tom Joyce

“For nothing will be impossible with God.”

Luke 1:37


“So what about me, God? Your angel told Mary nothing will be impossible with God, but what does that have to do with me?” Have you ever asked yourself these questions?  Life can feel impossible at times. Holidays can be difficult for many people, especially during this season of pandemic that has just turned life upside down and inside out. Consider this; God offered all the world, including us, a gift through Mary, a young girl who was otherwise going through life challenged by living day to day in an unforgiving world. How is that possible? Well, how was the creation of the world possible? How were the intricate workings of the human body possible? It is all about God, all about the love of God that finds each of us where we find ourselves, whether in the loneliness of a hospital room with no loved ones able to visit, or in the complexities of living in a world that changes by the day. The birth of Jesus fulfills the hope of God being with us no matter where we find ourselves; we may be lost but God’s love through Jesus never lost us. Jesus meets us along the journey of life, side by side with us and most importantly within us to offer the abundance of the love of God which has no end. That is God’s promise to you, fulfilled through the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus the Christ. In what seems impossible for you God offers the possible, for no other reason than that you are loved by God so profoundly, so completely that God wants nothing less than to let you know God is with you through the “impossibilities of life,” through the heart breaks of life, through the joys of life, through the uncertainties of life, and just through life itself. So what about you and me; how do we journey through impossible times? The answer was given nearly 2,000 years ago in a stable, through birth of Jesus. Sound impossible? “Nothing will be impossible with God.” God is with you, always has been, always will be; that is Christmas, hope fulfilled. Accept the love of Jesus into your heart today; take the hand of Jesus and you will know all things are possible with God by your side.
