The principal was visiting first class and asked the students what they wanted to be when they grow up. A hand shot up. “I want to be possible,” the boy answered. “Possible?” the principal asked. “Of all things that you might want to be why do you want that?” The boy replied, “Because at home my mum and dad are always saying that I’m impossible.”
It is easy to label someone as impossible. It is just as easy for them to think that they are indeed impossible, loose self confidence and not believe in themselves. God never sees anyone or any situation as impossible. The constant message throughout scripture is how God makes the impossible, possible. God always believes in us and always believes that we are indeed full of possibility. Today is a day when I can make something good and positive in my life possible.
