We are watching Star Wars today. It’s kind of a Benham Thanksgiving weekend tradition. I just saw the infamous part where Darth Vader reveals to Luke Skywalker…I am your father. Then Luke responds in horrific, devasting denial….No…No! That’s not true! That’s impossible!
I know that word. Impossible. On this day 10 years ago today we found out the impossible. We found out that we were going to be parents. That shocking knowledge completely changed my life…in a joyous, awesome, sobering way. A precious little life inside of me opened my eyes to be able to see. God showed me that He is in control and He can do anything. He graciously gave me what I wanted more than anything by making me a mother, even though I faithlessly believed it was physically impossible. He showed me that He knows my heart and my deepest longings. He showed me that He not only knows the plans He has for me, but He follows through with them. He gave me my dreams, and He made them come true…His way. I look back at this journey we are on and I am amazed that He showed me these things…times 3!?
Sometimes in the everyday I forget God’s amazing power and grace and faithfulness as I am drowning in His miraculous blessings. Today I give thanks to my Almighty God who makes all things possible.
