When You Can't -- God Can! By Carrie Fancett Pagels


Spring is coming! Daylight Savings Time adjustments are made today! Time moves on.  Forsythias and daffodils bloom and cherry trees blossom!

Just as those good things happen and unfold, sometimes bad things do, too. Friends ill with serious diseases worsen. Some may go on to heaven this next year. My own struggle with Rheumatoid Arthritis has worsened to the point that I'm about to try another Biologic after eight years since the last one almost killed me.

The beauty of Spring, the beauty of trusting in God, is the promise of an unfolding of His will. Regardless of what we do, Spring will come and progress. I have a friend who, like myself, has been restricted in her activities to the point of spending most of her days in a recliner. She's waiting on heaven. I'm waiting on improved health. Regardless, we're trusting God with our lives. I was given an extra eight years so far. None of us knows what God can do with our situations but we know He can do it! He can perform miracles. He can raise up dry bones.

Prayer: God bless those today too weak, ill, or discouraged to leave their homes. Give energy to those who need it to do Your will. Help us trust that when we can't, You can! In Jesus's precious name, Amen.
