Of Impossibilities




It is impossible
To love
And hold a grudge
Simultaneously

***

It is impossible
To trust and fear
Simultaneously

***

It is impossible
To serve self
And God
Simultaneously

***

It is impossible
To be happy
Without thankfulness

***

It is impossible
To be unhappy
With thankfulness

***

It is impossible
To give our best
While harboring guilt

***

It is impossible
To glorify God
While seeking personal gain

***

It is impossible
To dislike
Sleeping children

It is impossible
To teach
Simply by speech

***

It is impossible
To have friends
Without being a friend

***

It is impossible
To rejoice with those who rejoice
While jealous

***

It is impossible
To live a godly life
And a selfish one

***

It is impossible
To enter Heaven
But by the grace of God

We cannot escape
the awesome wonder
of God in this world!
It is impossible.
