The song comes on, lasting about five minutes, and the words linger all afternoon. There is much talk about purpose, dreams, and success. God works in our lives in ways which are beyond our capability and comprehension.
The words echo all afternoon until I finally grab my pad and write them down –
“Joy Unspeakable, Faith Unsinkable, Love Unstoppable, Anything is possible.”
Joy unspeakable. We can experience joy, the overwhelming assurance of wellness, apart from the circumstances in our life. This joy cannot be expressed in words for joy is unimaginable. We tend to notice it at times when we should be anything but joyful.
1 Peter 1: 8 (NLT) tells us, “You love him even though you have never seen him. Though you do not see him now, you trust him; and you will rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy.”
Faith unsinkable. Unsinkable, cannot be enveloped or fall to a lower level. We can stay afloat through the most difficult or trying times. We have His promise, “When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown” (Isaiah 43:2, NLT).
Love unstoppable. God’s love for us is great in every dimension known to us – it is wider, longer, higher, and deeper than we can ever realize. His love for us cannot be surpassed by anything in this world. It is His love, at work in our lives, which brings about His purposes in our lives. It is His love which completes us, “May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God” (Ephesians 3:19, NLT).
Three words – joy, faith, and love. All three present and active in our lives infuses God’s power at work in us.
His purposes in us and for us shall prevail for they are –
Anything is possible!
