Marshall and Rachael Smith in 1944


But Jesus beheld them and said unto them, "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."

Matthew 19:26

        CHALLENGES - NOT PROBLEMS

       Look on those problems as CHALLENGES,
My child,

         Circumstances that through Me
can be solved.

      Solutions may seem impossible to you;

         But I can help you -
no matter what is involved.

      The solutions may not come easily at all,

         And ofttimes the timing's tediously slow;

      But say "CHALLENGES - not problems"
and soon you shall see

         That your faith then will grow...
and will grow.

      Instead of seeing yourself as a victim to pain

         Or as having problems that are too hard to solve -

      See yourself taking hold of your CHALLENGES with Me, For all things are possible,
whatsoever's involved.

      My Word has innumerable promises,
My beloved:

         Search the Scriptures for the ones to help you;

      Then be empowered by My Spirit and undergirded with prayer -

         And together, we'll see your CHALLENGES through!

Be Strong

   
Dear one, do not fear the future,
For God promised to go ahead
And prepare the way before you -
So there is no reason for dread.

Be strong and be of good courage,
For your Lord will strengthen you.
If you only trust and obey Him,
He will give you strength anew.

The joy of the Lord is your strength, beloved.
Be thankful and rejoice in the Lord.
Be resolute and unflinchingly believe Him.
You have His mighty strength and His Word.
