Impossibility ~ by Tammy Sloss
I cry for the ministries of God that are not taking out the time to spend with these families in desperate need of your presence.
I cry believing that it only takes one person to pray, one person to fast, one person to believe in God, one person to lay hands, one person to anoint the doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists and one person to anoint their child believing that God will take control of the situation and turn things around.
I cry for the mother that may take this gift of God too lightly.
I cry for the mother that may lose their gift and I cry for the mother that may keep their gift but not understand the value of their gift, and give their gift back to God!
I pray that my cry be not in vain, and that all may realize that God is able to do so exceedingly and abundantly all that we think or see!
I cry looking for a miracle, expecting the impossible, feeling the intangible and seeing the invisible.
My tears for thought!
