Roy Lloyd: When Impossibilities Happen

February 03, 2012

There are many imponderables in life-truly great surprises such as the New York Football Giants actually making it to the Super Bowl!  And the Bible is filled with stories of much more significant impossibilities coming true.  

God told Abraham his descendents would be as many as the stars in the sky, and the Quran, the Hebrew Scriptures and the New Testament all sing his praises. 

Moses, a guy who stuttered, led Israelites from captivity to the Promised Land. 

David, a man with many flaws, nevertheless was a righteous king and his direct descendent is the Messiah. 

A simple fisherman followed Jesus and became known as Peter, the Rock. 

I'm mentioning this because we also face imponderables and surprises in our lives through the good we can achieve for others. 

God can work through the small seeds of kindness we plant by being faithful to having a generous spirit and helping others. 

Jesus said that even a little bit of faith, the size of a mustard seed, can move a mountain.  Maybe what each of us can move is very small, but it might be a significant mountain for someone else. 

So let's keep the faith and do what may seem beyond our tiny reach. 

This is Roy Lloyd.
