Five Minute Friday :: Possibility

Is anything too hard for the Lord with God all things will be possible
Is anything too hard for the Lord? Genesis 18:14
• With God nothing will be impossible. Luke 1:37

Photos and patterns, graphics and designs inspire us the same way as single word prompts. Come to think of it, so does music.

I love Kate's two lane highway to a possibility! Could that possibility be home? Either returning to a previous home or journeying home for a first time ever? Are we driving alone or together to a place we'll recognize when we're there? The road's not labeled, though (of course) it started somewhere and this particular one ends—wherever it does. Does it connect to an interstate or maybe arrive at a city or town? Streets and roads so energize our imaginations! Remembering ones we've driven and trod. Recalling old night dreams and faded daydreams and bringing them back to life. Do you remember Abraham? God told him "go to the place I will show you" …when you get there. Did Abraham's descendants know "this is the place" when they finally reached the edge of the Jordan?

This road isn't remote. It's paved, has a median strip and runs betwixt verdant fields. Is anything too hard for the Lord? Resurrection from the dead isn't. So even homecoming isn't too hard for God? With God no thing – even a broadly settled place – will be impossible. The good, the graceful, the bountiful, and the new will flourish as God leads the way to possibilities that aren't exactly remote.

Did you watch pre-Olympics skating last week? At some point someone said "it takes a village" to raise a skater. It takes a village to create any life, to make any dream a possibility. It takes a village to make a home. It takes a village to welcome someone home. Again or for the first time ever. Remember! With God everything will be possible! Amen? Amen!

  3. With God there's possibility,
    for He has told us so,
    and so in His humility
    let us decamps and go
    from the waspish Twitter-tweets
    from the Facebook vaunts,
    to the place where kindness meets
    grace in its old haunts
    of leafy vales and rushing streams
    of compassion, love and care,
    where we can encourage dreams
    in those still unaware
    that God's no stranger in the sky,
    and we are apple of His eye.
