Why not Me?

What He spoke to my heart seems absolutely impossible. Crazy. Nuts.

But I cannot let it go.

And I think of Mary, His mother, and how God came to her and told her she would birth the Son of God. A virgin birth. To a simple girl. Impossible. Crazy. Nuts. And she could not let it go.

And I think of Joseph, and David, and Esther. Oh Esther… what your uncle requested was absolutely impossible. Crazy. Nuts. But you did not let it go.

And Paul, and Nehemiah, and Moses. Oh Moses… how are you going to cross that Red Sea? Impossible. Crazy. Nuts. But you went forward.

My God, He does not choose according to natural abilities. Or bank account Or smarts. My God, He beats at the sound of a different drummer.

He spoke, and I can’t let it go.

But if I did… it might be the end of it all.  Because my God, He requires simple faith. Trust. Obedience.

And I think of Mary, Jesus’ mother, and how she trusted what seemed to be a dream. And Joseph who refused to yield to temptation, even though there were no signs that God was with Him. And Ester, oh sweet Esther… you must have known something deep inside.

moses parts the red seaAnd Paul, standing in the face of persecution; Nehemiah, building in the face of destruction; and Moses,oh Moses…your faith lead a zillion people to walk forward into the Red Sea.

And Jesus, oh Jesus… You believed Your Father’s word, and You banked Your life on them.


My God spoke, and I cannot let it go.

One simple woman in the midst of six billion of them. Why not me?

  1. This is a beautiful and powerful post. Absolutely true, too. Why not you? Why not me? As I write it is Christmas Eve Day. Christmas…..the day my Lord was born in a dirty, stinking stable. Miracles happen every day. Faith is believing what we cannot see or touch for feel. I obey when I hear His voice in my heart, my soul. Most times I have no idea of the result of my obedience. I just have peace, His blessed peace and I know it is well with my soul. I leave the rest up to Him. O come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord. Step out when he calls our name. Have a blessed Christmas.

  2. With God – the impossible becomes a reality. Crazy – yes, – nuts- maybe, but when God spoke – we put all else aside and move forward at His voice.
