#94 - With FAITH, NOTHING is Impossible!

Good morning! It is a bit chilly here in Cola today! Definitely fall. Long sleeves and jeans. Wow! It's November! TOMORROW is a VERY important day... yes, it's important because it's my sister Angie's birthday.... BUT it's the day to VOTE!!! MAKE sure to exercise your right and OBLIGATION as an American to VOTE! Take some time today to read up on some of the candidates running in your area. See what the topics or bills are that you may be voting on. YOU matter! Especially you!!! I would anticipate most people who read this blog are Christians, therefore your vote is even more important. You can help to vote the men and women of God into office in your respective areas! We NEED your vote!!! In order to take this country back for GOD & Freedom we need men & women of God VOTING!!! Take it seriously! Encourage your friends and family to vote, take a car-load to the voter's booth. If you DO NOT exercise your right to vote, by default, you eliminate yourself from having an opinion or complaining about what takes place in our Nation. PLEASE take the time to vote tomorrow. Wear your "I VOTED" sticker with pride afterwards. Encourage all of the conservative Christians out there to VOTE their VOICE. One by one, we can win this country for God and keep it "In God We Trust." That is the only way the United States of America will continue to be such a blessed nation. Pray for the elections. 

So... let's get started. 
Psalm 1:2 - But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night.
Psalm 30:7a - By Your favor, O Lord, You have established me as a strong mountain... 
Proverbs 31:11 - The heart of her husband trusts in her confidently and relies on and believes in her securely, so that he has no lack of [honest] gain or need of [dishonest] spoil. 
Matthew 17:20 - He said to them, Because of the littleness of your faith [that is, your lack of firmly relying trust]. For truly I say to you, if you have faith [that is living] like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to yonder place, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.
Faith. Habitually meditating on the instructions from the Lord. Faith. Trusting, having confidence, proceeding forward with no questions and no doubt. The questions are irrelevant because the wholeness of your entire being says you know "this" thing to be true. It is by complete FAITH. With faith, there is NO toil. With faith, there is NO frustration. With faith, NOTHING will be impossible to you. The mountains in your life will be removed like tossing a coin in a pool of water. The mountains will be removed with such ease that the simplicity of it's removal seems astounding. As the mountain is removed, you watch it disappear in awe as you stand in the midst of it disappearing. As you stand on the mountain and it vanishes to nothing. The mountain is gone. The goal achieved. The victory had. 

I specifically remember this very vividly happening ONE time in my life. I'm very excited to see it happen more. To watch every mountain disappear with NO TOIL from me or Tyler. It was November.... but it all began with a conversation that Tyler had with our business mentor at the end of October. He challenged Tyler on one of our business goals. Something that had been a goal for probably 2 years, but a goal that we hadn't really made any visible signs of progressing towards. He challenged Tyler, "Are you really going to do it? Are you going to go Ruby? Are you going to accomplish this goal that you've been talking about for so long?" At that moment, after Tyler said yes..... Bob questioned him again. "You've said yes before. Are you REALLY going to do it?" But this time, it was different. A second and third time, Tyler said yes. But this time he really meant yes. Yes! Yes! This time, YES, it was going to happen. 

Tyler walked into Qdoba, the mexican restaurant where we were having dinner and he said. "We are doing it. This month, November, we are going Ruby. We ARE doing it!" For some reason, this time, I fully believed him. It was like a transfer of faith occurred. I totally believed him! I believed him. I didn't have to try, I just did. I didn't need to know how, I just knew it would happen. What that meant is, it would be DOUBLING our business in ONE MONTH! DOUBLING! We needed to get to 15,000 points from 8800 points. A month came and went. No toil. No extraordinary work, just different work. We went from just "going through the motions" to having a purpose. Waking up with a DIRECT purpose every day. Like what it talked about in Psalm 1:2, habitually meditating on the instructions of God day and night. Every day when we got up my thoughts were "what am I going to do to move forward to our goal today?" Every day. Unlike what my thoughts were in the past, they were thoughts of toil. But this was different. There was NO TOIL at all. We did things and activities to move our business forward, but the difference was we were in COMPLETE faith. We went from 8800 to 18000 in ONE MONTH! What our business team did was pretty much unheard of. BUT, it was because we grasped faith. That mountain was removed! We did it. And it was sooooo easy. 

When things are done in faith, they are not hard. There is no toil. The only thing I could explain was when I saw the faith that Tyler had, that he fully believed we were going to do it, it was like a transfer of faith occurred. I immediately believed him. I had faith. Unwavering faith. Unquestioning faith. Then our business team had faith. We all progress forward in complete faith. Unquestioning. Unwavering. Complete faith.

Mountains can EASILY be moved. The mountain in our life that was moved and it was easy. What took the longest was for us to grab hold of the PURE faith that it would be done. Once that took place, time was not even an issue. God took what we thought should take months to progress to and did it in ONE month. The impossible was possible because GOD was in the picture. 

I'm excited for the other mountains in our life to be moved. FAITH says they can be done and they can be done easily. With faith, there is no toil.
