"I believe that God can do the unbelievable."

As I begin to hear the stories of families who lost everything this weekend from Hurricane Irene, I look around and see how blessed I truely am. As I sit here stressed about what volunteers I need to fill, or what tasks I need to complete, there are people, neighbors, brothers and sisters in Christ around me, wondering what volunteers are going to help them salvage what remains of their homes. They've lost everything. The damage is unbelievable...

Just as the disciples in Mark 9:14-32, so often I think that I believe, but neglect to see that there is such unbelief in my inner-being. Lord, help me to believe even in my unbelief that you are able to do immeasurably more than I can ask or imagine, in the little things of my daily life, or the big things. Help my 'hope' become 'faith.' God you are great, and even in my little faith, you do mighty things. "I believe that God can do the unbelievable." He can rescue those who are homeless, those who are brokenhearted, those who have lost everything... He is able.
