"Looking at them, Jesus *said, “With people it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.” (Mark 10:27) NASB
Michigan pastor Scott Blanchard is not an ordinary church leader.
Although he had a strong desire as a kid to become a minister after accepting Christ at the age of 7, the obstacles he faced along the way were unlike those faced by the average pastor.
Sharing his dream with his friends in school, they doubted his abilities to be able to proclaim the Gospel to an audience. Blanchard was born with 80 percent hearing loss and speaks with a noticeable speech impediment.
Although his handicap gave him low self-esteem and made him lack confidence as a kid, Blanchard learned to face his obstacles and doubts head-on. He's now a successful Detroit-area church plant leader.
"For me, there is a constant reminder that I am fulfilling God's word and I am reminding myself that in Christ, all things are possible," Blanchard told The Christian Post in an interview.
Do you have a "with Christ all things are possible story" of your own?
