All Things Are Possible ... by Chantel Williams

“Jesus said unto him, if thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” (Mark 9:23 KJV)

I am reminded of this verse daily. Even though challenges, trials, and tribulations may arise, I know that God’s word will never return void. He keeps His promise, but we must believe. I am a true believer that all things are possible. God knows every move that we make even before we make it, and He knows the outcome even before we begin the process. God knows the end from the beginning. This makes it even more realistic that we must trust and believe that all things are possible. Although we may not understand the purpose during the time of the trial and tribulation, we must trust that with God’s help, we will get through it. For greater is on the other side, but we must push through it in order to get there.

After facing a few tragic moments which created a void and empty space in my family’s life, I was often reminded of God’s promise and that I had to trust the process. Instead of settling for the saying of ‘No’, I accepted God’s word of ‘Not Right Now’. During the time of the 2020 pandemic, I faced many disappointments, but the most challenging were a job loss and a loss of a baby (miscarriage). These events happened within months of one another. Although these items were very devastating, they were temporary. Yes, my faith was tested, but I had to brush myself off and instead of asking, “Why Me”, I asked, “Why Not Me”. As soon as I let go and let God have His way, that’s when things started happening for the good, and my prayer and questions were answered. God had to take me through, in order to get me to the other side of His promise. He had to make sure that I was really trusting and believing in Him and that I was a firm believer that all things are possible.

Losing my job pushed me into full-time entrepreneurship and allowed my business operations to reach even higher heights. Things began to make sense because I was operating in the God-given talent and purpose that was destined for me. I remained focused on the vision and accomplishing what were once long-term goals that were outlined on a vision board. Goals that led to fulltime entrepreneurship were being accomplished as short-term goals. Suddenly, I began to think outside of the box and master connections and gained access to resources that I never dreamed of. I have been able to secure contracts, certifications, and other business opportunities in a mighty way. Then that wasn’t enough. God blessed my husband and me to conceive again and we had our Miracle Baby on August 7, 2022—God’s Promise!

Although our baby boy came much earlier than his original due date, God was right on time with everything. It was as if everything that happened was to increase my faith. God uses everything that we learn to reveal Himself each and every day. God makes the impossible possible! I am so thankful for all things!
