January 15, Today’s thought – Impossible?

Good Morning

With God—all things are possible! (Matthew 19:26).

Consider Abram.
Pushing a century of years,
his wife, Sarai, ninety.
The wallpaper in the nursery faded,
baby furniture out of date.
The topic of a promised child brings sighs and tears. . .
and God tells them
they’d better select a name for their new son.
They laugh!
Partly because it’s too good to happen
and partly because it might.
They’ve given up hope,
and hope born anew is always funny
before it’s real.
They laugh a little at God,
and a lot with God—
for God is laughing too.

With the smile still on His face,
He gets busy doing what He does the best—
the unbelievable.
Abram, the father of one,
will now be Abraham,
the father of a promised multitude.
Sarai, the barren one,
will now be Sarah,
the mother.

Their names aren’t the only thing God changes.
He changes the way
they define the word impossible!

From The Applause of Heaven–Max Lucado
