In Others’ Words: Possible Impossibilities
I think I shall start the week believing the impossible.
There’s so much more breathing space … so much more room for dreaming and doing … when I stress the possible in the word impossible.
Rather than thinking of all I won’t get done today or tomorrow or the day after … rather than thinking won’t and shouldn’t and and can’t and mustn’t … I’ve decided the mental roadblock of the word impossible doesn’t exist. Impossible is now a wide open door to so, so many possibilities.
Who knows what I’ll discover with my eyes wide open and the limitations shoved way-back? Who knows what I’ll accomplish with yes as my answer to all the doubts and questions that want to impede my progress?
Today I am going to believe the truth “I can do all things through him who gives me strength” (Philippians 4:13 NIV) — and not put any hidden qualifiers on the verse. You know what I mean: I can do all things … except for dealing with that family issue. I can do all things … except for juggling those competing demands on my time.
No exceptions. No impossibilities. Care to join me in believing all things are possible?
In Others’ Words: When have you changed your thinking about something impossible — and been surprised to see it become possible? How would you encourage someone facing an impossible challenge today?
