What if We Could Achieve the Impossible

What if We Could Achieve the Impossible

“The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going into the impossible.”
Arthur C. Clark

How do you define “impossible?” One dictionary defines it as “felt to be incapable of being done, attained, or fulfilled.” I think the important word in this definition is “felt.” Sometimes we are our own worst critic: “I can’t do it alone,” or “I can’t make a difference by myself.” Let’s just discuss one “impossible” situation: world hunger. Can you feed the entire world? Of course not…that’s impossible. But can you give monetarily to an organization helping to feed the hungry? Can you bring food to church on Sunday morning to help our neighbors at La Roca? Can you donate no longer needed possessions to the church rummage sale knowing the money raised will help the less fortunate? Can you help a needy family by donating to Common Ground?article poss.jpg If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you are stepping into the “impossible.” The definition of “possible” says: “capable of being realized….” one person, acting with hundreds, thousands or millions of others, can turn the impossible into the possible. The Bible tells us in Mark 9:23 that “anything is possible if you have faith.” So have the kind of faith that allows you to step into what might be considered “impossible.” By doing so, you just might be pushing the limits into the “possible!”
