“Sometimes, I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” The White Queen, Alice in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll.
How many of you smiled when you read that?! I smiled when I typed it! I LOVE thinking the impossible and I love BELIEVING it even more!
When Ella was four years old, she had this little pink scooter that she would scoot around on in our cul-de-sac. One day, a bunch of little boys were playing in a dirt pile in the center of the court and asked her to join in their fun. She happened to be wearing her Sleeping Beauty costume at the time and she scootered right up to their mud pie pile and, crown ever so slightly askew, said, “Excuse me, but I am Pwincess Awoawa (translation: Princess Aurora), and I don’t play wif mud.” And off she went.
In that moment, she WAS Princess Aurora, off on her pink chariot of a scooter to conquer the cul-de-sac kingdom. No doubt in her mind. I think even the boys believed it!
“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With human beings this is impossible, but with God, all things are possible.’” Matthew 19:26, TNIV.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13, NKJV.
“We have God’s assurance that literally nothing is beyond His ability to do. Isn’t that so encouraging?! Even in the worst circumstances you can ever imagine, He can turn it around in an instant.” Wendie Connors, excerpt from The KISS, page 71.
Now. Go put on your crown, tell those nay-sayers you don’t want to play with their mud, and go conquer your world, one cul-de-sac at a time!
