Over the weekend, my parents and I went to Freedom Fest at Christ’s Church. It was a great time of reflection, worship, and learning as the Lord spoke to the hearts of many, including my own. Friday’s lineup included Andy Mineo, Tenth Avenue North, and Matthew West. When Matthew got to his song “Anything is Possible,” it was like the Lord was giving me a reminder that no matter what I face, and no matter what anybody else faces, anything is possible with Him. Ever since then, that song has still stuck in my head, and I just want to share some encouragement and hope to whoever may need to hear it.

Matthew wrote this song from the story of a lady who was put in jail, but God turned her life around when she found His hope for her life. It’s a perfect picture that no matter how messed up your life may be, God still offers mercy, truth, and grace. Whether you are a convicted criminal, an outcast, or someone who comes from a broken family, there is hope for you. You don’t have to live in your sin or brokenness any longer because you can run to the God of this universe who created you for an amazing purpose and receive His forgiveness and mercy for your life. Maybe you are someone who suffers from cancer or some type of disease/illness, or perhaps you just lost your home or job, there is a light at the end of the tunnel for you as well. The light is Jesus Christ, and He is standing at the door of your heart, knocking and waiting for you to invite Him into your life. Once you do so, I can’t promise that your life will be a smooth ride from thereon out, because it won’t be, but you have someone greater than yourself that can take your impossible situation and make a possible way to get through it. In Christ alone is strength, forgiveness, love, mercy, truth, faithfulness, possibility, and so much more. Run to Jesus today, because with Him, anything is possible.

Matthew 19:26 – “Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.'”

Here is the link to Matthew West’s song, “Anything is Possible”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tMksCAK-YE

Here are the lyrics to the song:

She said, “Dear Matthew, I spent most of my life in a downwards spiral, it’s true
Always feeling like there was just no way out, no matter what I’ve tried to do
When I finally hit rock bottom, when I heard them lock me up behind those bars
And it kills me to say I gave birth to my daughter there”
And in that moment it wrecked my heart

But I found that you can find hope
In the hopeless places
And when you’re hanging at the end of your rope
Man, that’s where grace is

Anything anything anything is
Anything is possible
I believe that the one I believe in
He is the God of the impossible
‘Cause love can fix a busted heart like mine
Put it back together every single time
Turn my mess to a miracle
Anything is possible

She said, “Fast forward six years later
And then sometimes I still can’t believe my eyes
I went back to school, I got a job and a new house
God has blessed me with a beautiful life
And I look at that little girl every morning when I wake up
And those eyes are so blue that they are the proof that no matter what never give up.”

Anything anything anything is
Anything is possible
I believe that the one I believe in
He is the God of the impossible
‘Cause love can fix a busted heart like mine
Put it back together every single time
Turn my mess to a miracle
Anything is possible

Just when you thought it never could
Love’s working all things for the good
So lift your eyes up to the one who makes a way
Where there was no way

She said, “Matthew, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it
It ain’t perfect but it must be told
‘Cause there is somebody out there with the odds stacked against them
So write my song and let them know.”

Anything anything anything is
Anything is possible
I believe that the one I believe in
He is the God of the impossible
‘Cause love can fix a busted heart like mine
Put it back together every single time
Turn my mess to a miracle
Anything is possible

Anything is possible
Anything anything anything is
Anything is possible
Anything anything anything is
Love fixed a busted heart like mine
Anything anything anything is
Anything is possible
Anything anything anything is
