When the Impossible Becomes Possible: Sometimes It’s the Little Things

November 09, 2014

I was on a hike with my dog Blessing in the middle of a national forest this morning when I needed to take a break. I had settled next to one of the multiple pine trees and as I was fiddling with my stuff my glasses fell off. No big deal, I’ll pick them up in a second after I finish with what I’m doing here.

Later we continued on, Blessing chasing after chipmonks and squirrels while I marveled at the beauty of the woods even though the scenery has changed drastically with the cold and freezing weather we have been having; the starkness creating a black and white old-photo look.  It’s still pretty in my mind and it’s wonderful to be able to be out and about, particularly with my wonderful Black Mouth Cur, “Blessing”.

I stumbled upon what I thought could be old bones and I wondered why I couldn’t quite make it out.

MY GLASSES!

No wonder I was having difficulty!  Then I realized that my glasses were way back there, along side a tree. Along side a tree that looked like hundreds of other trees! I’m in a dense forest for Petessake, NOT on a trail. We have been bushwacking and meandering, WHERE could I have left my glasses?!

It did not take long for me to realize the IMPOSSIBILITY of this situation. How far had we hiked since my break? Did we head out straight ahead? No, we bushwacked for a while. Was it a big tree, was it a smaller tree? Oh, this is sooooo impossible!! THERE ARE SO MANY TREES!

I had only one course of reasonable action. Pray.

So I did. Nothing fancy, not long, just a request for help finding my glasses. Did I have a heaping dose of faith? Nope. Just a prayer for the impossible to be possible, would He even answer such a minor thing when He has intense global issues, healings, protections and provisions, and millions upon millions of prayers to respond to?

We start back, and the more ground I cover the more I am convinced I am totally doomed. Blessing doesn’t mind, she is happily rechecking for little critters to harass. I wished I could say, “Blessing find my glasses. Go girl, go to where we stopped before.” but her understanding, although remarkable, would not comprehend my request. Feeling defeated, overwhelmed with the “unattainableness” of the situation, I prayed again, “Oh please, Lord. PLEASE help me find my glasses!”

I looked down to take another step and what do I see (WITHOUT my glasses on at that) are … YES! My glasses!! My colorless frames blending in with the fallen leaves, so very hard to see, so very hard to find .. right there at my feet. I had acres to cover, and my Lord directed my stumbling path to this very location. Talk about a needle in a haystack, this was a glowing example!!

I don’t know if this is a “you had to have been there” thing for others to grasp the total mind-blowing moment when I saw my glasses there, right where I had left them. The IMPOSSIBILITY of my making it back to that exact spot. What are the extreme odds?!

I began to cry and I spoke to my Lord, “God, You blow my mind. This was such a minor thing and You helped me. You answered that prayer of This Is Impossible, But Can You Help. Thank You God, Thank You so very much!”  and I continued to shake my head at the incredibleness of this situation and thanked Him again and again sporatically as we trekked.

As we continued our hike, I wept off and on.  Why? I am so humbled that He cares so much.  I told Him, “If You care this much about such a trivial thing in my life … Lord, oh how much more You care about souls!! Your love and willingness to Personally interact with mankind is so beyond my mere human comprehension!”

Listen,

I don’t know what situation, what IMPOSSIBLE situation you are facing right now. What I do know is, that I was led to post this “minor miracle” in my life to give you hope. Because God is no respector of persons. Meaning that He does not favor one person or their needs over another. He knew in advance each person who would read this and He is using this to speak to you.  I sincerely hope that you’re listening to Him and that you will respond to whatever it is that He has for you. You may think it’s too trivial to bother Him with, or it may be so huge that your faith was weakened. Hear this:

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN CHRIST JESUS!

Talk to Him!

Video Remember the Lady Who Spilled Coffee On Herself At McDonald’s, Then Sued For Millions?

It’s really unbelievable what happened to Stella Liebeck. You just have to watch to see how the media turned on this little old lady who lived in Albuquerque. Obviously a villain, right? And at 5:00, prepare to see what the coffee actually did to her. It’s not pretty. Well … nothing in her situation was.

Imagine all of this could be yours! (Or is it already yours?)

Psalm 91

“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him will I trust.’.

Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence.

He shall cover you with His Feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and your buckler.

You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day,

Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it will not come near you.

Is Your Heart a Runaway?

norman-rockwell-the-runaway

Revive

The attitude of the heart means everything.

It really is a matter of the heart.  Where our heart is, you will find our treasures, our true personalities, the things we love most, there. Unfortunately, many of us have placed our treasures in an unsafe place where the thief and enemy lies under the veil of deception ready to steal, kill and destroy. (John 10:10) After all, that is his sole purpose; destruction. Reality check: is your heart a runaway or are you prepared?

When faced with the terrorizing prospect of chaotic civil unrest across America, (which will be violent) the rampant deceptions and corruption coming from our government, false flag “drills” which are preparations for the near-future real-deal, and the potential for World War lll on our doorsteps, and so much more, it’s no wonder we want to run away. In fact, many of us already have. We may…

The Maker of the Mountains I Can’t Climb

Revive

These are not ordinary times and I am ready to dive off into the deep end.

Finally, I have reached the “want-to”, the readiness, the acceptance of furthering my “wilderness experiences” and I am willing to dive into the deep end, even though I can’t swim a single stroke on my own. Really, I can’t swim. I can fake it with fins on my feet, otherwise I’m floundering and lost in the vastness of the ocean, definitely “without a paddle”.

Recently there have been monumental mountains/changes in my life.  I lost a sibling to suicide on July the 4th to name just one.  Amazing how this tragedy has paved the avenue for a renewed and reconciled relationship with other family members, as only God can arrange, making beauty from of ashes.  Two of us got together yesterday and it was a delightful day of reunion and of memories, discovery, jokes…

Incredible Underwater Crop Circles

Mysterious underwater circles created by 5-inch fish seeking love

Oct. 3, 2013 at 11:48 AM ET

Circles

Kawase et al
These “mystery circles” found off Japan are about 7 feet wide and are made by a 5-inch fish.

In 1995, divers noticed a beautiful, strange circular pattern on the seafloor off Japan, and soon after, more circles were discovered nearby. Some likened these formations to “underwater crop circles.” The geometric formations mysteriously came and went, and for more than a decade, nobody knew what made them.

Finally, the creator of these remarkable formations was found: a newly discovered species of pufferfish. Further study showed these small pufferfish make the ornate circles to attract mates. Males laboriously flap their fins as they swim along the seafloor, resulting in disrupted sediment and amazing circular patterns. Although the fish are only about 12 centimeters (5 inches) long, the formations they make measure about 2 meters (7 feet) in diameter.

When the circles are finished, females come to inspect them. If they like what they see, they reproduce with the males, said Hiroshi Kawase, the curator of the Coastal Branch of Natural History Museum and Institute in Chiba, Japan. But nobody knows exactly what the females are looking for in these circles or what traits they find desirable, Kawase told LiveScience. [See Video of Pufferfish Making Seafloor Circles]

Unique circles
Pufferfish mating involves females laying eggs in the fine sediments in the center of the circles, and then the males fertilizing them externally. Then, the females vanish, and the males stay for another six days, perhaps to guard the eggs, the study noted.

Males of some species of cichlids (a type of fish) are known to construct crater-shaped mounds that females visit to have their eggs fertilized, Kawase said. For example, male featherfin cichlids in Africa’s Lake Tanganyika build small bowls out of the sand, and display them to females before mating there, said Alex Jordan, a researcher at the University of Texas at Austin who wasn’t involved in this study.

But this new pufferfish’s geometric patterns have three features never seen before. First, they involve radially aligned ridges and valleys outside the nest site. Second, the male decorates these ridges with fragments of shells. Third, the male gathers fine sediments to give the resulting formation a distinctive look and coloring, Kawase said. [Photos: Pufferfish Make Seafloor Circles to Mate]

Strangely enough, the male “gathers” the fine sediments using the circular pattern itself, Kawase said. A fluid dynamics test using a half-size model of one of these circles found that the upstream portion of the circle funnels water and fine sediments toward the center. Then, the downstream peaks and valleys funnel the water outward. The speed of water was slowed by nearly 25 percent in the center, where the eggs are laid, the study noted.

Bowerbirds of the sea?
It takes about seven to nine days for the pufferfish to build the circles. The male pufferfish don’t maintain these formations, and underwater currents wash them away relatively quickly. Kawase said they likely give up their old formations because the circles exhaust the fine sediment in the area, and thus must be built anew in areas with fresh sediment.

When Jordan first heard about the circles, he guessed a much bigger fish would have made them. The fact that such a small animal makes such a large formation is “pretty cool, and suggests some underlying biological reason for the size, like poor visibility at depth, or distance between individuals that means males have to make large nests to be found by females,” he told LiveScience.

Research describing the pufferfish formations was published in July in the journal Scientific Reports. “It’s a nice clean study because it provides a definite answer to the question — something that is very rare in biology,” Jordan said.

The formations are very similar to so-called “bowers” — display sites built by various animals like bowerbirds in which to strut their stuff before mating. In this case, the formations may serve solely to gather fine sediments, which females could use to choose their mate, Jordan said.

But until this idea is tested, nobody will know. “The one caveat I have is that there is no evidence that females care about anything more than the fine sand, and even that’s a stretch,” Jordan said. “The beautiful lines and structure could serve only to channel those particles to the center, and have no aesthetic purpose.”

Although Jordan said he doesn’t think that’s the case, the idea that the fine sediments are important to females would be “biologically interesting, because it would suggest that function is more important than appearance,” he said.
