Let’s meet Amber, who has some thoughts about how God can help with the little things:
Is Anything Too Hard for God?
Have you ever had a problem that you just can’t fix? You’ve tried everything, but have nothing to show for it? I had one of those situations last week.
I was copying some CDs for a non-profit when the robot duplicator stopped working. I had shut it down the night before, and when I came back the next day, it wouldn’t turn on. Tech support had told me that the motherboard or CPU was about to go out, and when it did, it would cost a lot of money to get it fixed. I spent 30 minutes plugging, unplugging and fiddling with cords, switches etc., trying to get it to turn on, but to no avail.
Yesterday, I was at my wits’ end. I needed to fulfill an order, and it still wouldn’t turn on. I stopped, bowed my head, and silently prayed. Lord, we really need this duplicator to work. The non-profit doesn’t have the money to replace it, and we’re using it to encourage people in your word. Please make this thing turn on and work properly.
Did you know that Jesus fixes computers?
I flipped the switch, and the duplicator immediately sprung to life. I haven’t had any problems with it. It made me wonder why I hadn’t prayed about it long before! Thus the infamous words of the song:
“Oh what peace we often forfeit!
Oh what needless pain we bare,
All because we do not carry,
Everything to God in prayer.”
Some may say that is a very small thing. Why would God care about that? But you know what? Sometimes God’s greatness is shown by how small of things He can do. This little thing He did for me was a great reminder of the power of a faith-filled prayer, and that NOTHING IS TOO HARD FOR GOD.
What do you need God to do in your life? Is it too big? Is it too small?
Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?

The Swaddling Clothes:
Through the ages, many stories have been told about Mary, Joseph and the birth of the Messiah. Stories of shepherds and sheep, kings, angels, and stables. But there is one story that has never been told. One story that has remained hidden in the fabric of time. The story of The Swaddling Clothes.
Mentioned not once, but several times in the scriptural text, what is the significance of these special cloths? And how did they make their way into a stable in Bethlehem? From the author that brought you the Days of Messiah series comes a whole new adventure critics are calling “intriguing…thought provoking…a fresh twist on an age old story.”
“I get tired of Bible stories sometimes, but The Swaddling Clothes brings the story to life.”
“Heartwarming…truly inspired. A story you will want to read again and again. Rich details and a suspenseful plot will keep you reading while giving you a glimpse of God’s wonderful power and His amazing love.”
