Years ago, when we had our horses on a different property, Shannon had gone out to feed after church. At the time she was driving a little Mazda Miata.

After being gone for a few hours, Shannon called and said, “I want you to be prepared for what you are about to see. The horses ate my car.” At first I thought she was joking but she assured me it had happened.

As I waited for Shannon to pull into the driveway, I began to think that maybe the horses had chewed on the convertible top because it would be impossible for horses to actually eat a metal car. I was wrong. The impossible was possible. It was not a good day.

What I learned is that the impossible is possible and to never say never. History agrees.

Even though blind, deaf, and dumb, Helen Keller was able to communicate. After waiting 108 years, the Chicago Cubs won the World Series. The unsinkable Titanic sunk. And best of all, Jesus fed over 5,000 people with five loaves of bread and two fish. There were even 12 baskets of leftovers.

So if you somehow think because of what you have done to yourself or others that it is impossible for God to love you; think again. Our God is the One who makes the impossible possible.

When the disciples ask in despair who can be saved, Jesus says, “For mortals it is impossible, but for God all things are possible.”

As impossible as it may seem, God will always love you. That will never change.

Prayer: “Dear Gracious Heavenly God, I continually fail you, yet you still love me. What I think is impossible you have made possible. For this, I offer myself to you without reservation. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

A chewed up Miata taught me all things are possible. It was a lesson worth learning.

I pray your day is filled with joy and laughter.
