Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” (Mark 9:23 NKJV)
I did not have an encouragement prepared ahead for today. I have told the Lord if you have nothing to say, it will not be said. After about three hours of seeking the Lord and hearing many things and nothing for sure, I was about to quote my pastor. “READ YOUR BIBLE. DO WHAT IT SAYS and be done for the day.
I looked out my window and saw the gray sky. I immediately heard the beloved song lyric that have sung so many times at the top of my lungs make a run through my mind. “I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day. When it’s cold outside, I’ve got the month of May.” A slight smile crossed my face. We do have the whole month of May. It is a great month. It is when the April showers leave, the cold weather makes it exit and the beautiful and plentiful May flowers start blooming. It is a month of homemade ice cream and fresh picked strawberries. It is the month schools end and vacations begin. It a month of possibilities by virtues of its own name.
The word “may” means to be possible; to have physical power; to be able; to have moral power; to have liberty, leave, license or permission; to be permitted; to be allowed. May is used in prayer and petitions to express desire. May is used to express good will.
May your May be full. “The LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.” ‘ (Numbers 6:24-26 NKJV)
I enCOURAGE you to let May be your month where all things are possible. Believe it! See it! Watch it happen. Take your liberty. You are permitted to live out your best life. Express good will to all men. Eat homemade ice cream and fresh strawberries. HAPPY MAY! Happy possibilities.
