What Are YOUR Six Impossible Things?

I watched Tim Burton‘s “Alice in Wonderland” at the movie theater yesterday.
In spite of the elderly woman who sucked on mentholated cough drops (those things are bad for you!) and hacked and coughed behind us without covering her mouth, the movie was great!

No critiques of the film from me, just something to consider…

“Alice laughed: “There’s no use trying,” she said; “one can’t believe impossible things.”
“I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

Believing is the genesis of the power to change yourself, your neighborhood, your country, and your world. (If you’re shaking your head and saying, “that’s impossible…” you can add that statement to your list.) Someone, somewhere, at some point in time, believed the following:

  • that a ship could sail around the world without falling off the horizon’s edge.
  • that man could fly through the sky like a bird.
  • that electricity could be harnessed and controlled.
  • that it was possible to travel to the moon and back.
  • that slavery would come to an end in the United States.
  • that the Iron Curtain in Berlin would fall

And what about satellites and cell phones, television and automobiles? We live and dwell right in the midst of another generation’s impossibility! It all began with a thought, followed by a word, and a corresponding action. One person’s believing spread to another person, and another, and another, and eventually, the impossible became possible.

“For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment.” Luke 1:37

 “But He said, ‘What is impossible with men is possible with God.'” Luke 18:27

    LOVE this post. Sigh. I'm such an optimist PLUS I really have in my gut now that all things are possible with God (even a rich man entering the kingdom of God!!)

    So…my mind, for once, is blank!!!!!!!

    Isn't that wonderful to think about the impossibilities of life and realize just how awesome and in control our God really is?
    It's enough to make a pessimist happy! : )
