Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.”  Mark 10: 27, NLT

What Do You Believe?

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.”

This conversation between Alice and the Red Queen is from Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll. Alice is like most of us. She sees the reality of the world and cannot grasp how some things are even possible. Her mind is finite, and as she observes the world, she tosses the miraculous aside and quickly declares, “It’s impossible!”

Perhaps God would like us to be a bit less Alice and more like the Queen. After all, she demonstrates her childlike faith and doesn’t question that many more things are possible if one just believes. Like many of us, she believed in possibility even more when she was younger, but at any age, for those who have confidence in the grace and goodness of God, everything is possible. 

It’s Still Possible!

If you’re going through some difficult times and your spirits are sagging, it may be time to turn your face toward the One who knows your situation already and is there for you. Since your life is in His hands, He offers you only His good, His best, and His blessing for whatever you have to face. He will carry you through those uncertain, dark patches, into His most incredible light. Whatever is casting a gloomy spell over you , put it in God’s hands. Let it rest with the One who makes all things possible!

Keep trying! God is with you!
