The Impossible ~ Closing Thoughts
Greetings Dear Reader,
We opened this thinking by considering baseball. The act of hitting the ball is clear evidence of doing the impossible. There is other evidence that we do the impossible every day.
When I set aside my anger, preferences, or selfishness to show love to others, I am doing the impossible. It is made possible because of grace and love. When I am called out on something I do wrong and respond in humility instead of pride, I am doing something that is impossible for me to do alone.
When we follow Christ faithfully, we make the impossible not only possible but probable. Love and grace crush the impossible that allows others to change. A friend told me last night how different I am over the last year. The observation was based on hours and hours of conversation and interaction over real issues. The conclusion that people can change makes the work worth it.
The thing we get to be a part of that is the most impossible is the impact of our love on the lives of others. We get to turn death into a fighting chance to live. We get to see others become their better selves. Relationships can be restored. Families can heal. Those we have written off can be written back on.
It only works when we believe that the impossible is possible. If the Father can redeem us, we become the impossible transformed to the possible. Our lives become testaments to the journey that reveals the possible every day. How we travel with others reveals the impossible coming alive in us and being shared with others.
In this space, in that 1/10 of a second when we believe and choose to act in love, we make it all possible. That, Dear Reader, is where life exists. It is in that moment when we choose to believe, follow, and act. I hope that you can embrace the depth of this reality long before I did. Life is so much richer when we see it this way. There is still pain and sorrow. The difference is that each replication of that moment yields results that can last for eternity. That is the impossibility that we can all make possible.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a homeowner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
