I is for Impossible
Taste the word.
We all encounter it, more or less, sooner or later. We're told it, we feel it, we live it. So many things are impossible. So many things that we often get caught in it, can't get past it, can't think around it. Because we're taught that it's impossible.
But what if it's not? Do I even dare to think it, much less consider it? Life is full of surprises. Even sience is full of surprises, things that were impossible or not true yesterday are being reevaluated today. The word "atom" means something that's impossible to split - it was when discovered - but today we're spitting atoms and kids know what they consist of.
Not so long ago we celebrated Easter. As a Christian, it can't get bigger than that. God made the impossible happen. Christ died, and by that opened the way to reconciliation with God. Then he rose again, defying death - the ultimate impossible.
He told us nothing is impossible, if we only have faith in him. With God, the word is changed. Not Impossible, but I'm possible.
