Lessons Learned from Sickness Part 45: Brokenness
By Pastor Ronny Luces
There is always a depressing connotation every time you hear the word “impossible”.
If you have a patient in the hospital, and the doctor tells you that their case is impossible to be treated, you would really feel depressed.
If you are applying for a job, and the hiring personnel told you that it is impossible to consider your application, you will certainly feel upset.
This is because impossible denotes a dead-end, a hopeless scenario, a point of no return.
What more can you do for something that was already declared impossible?
You can’t do anything. You can’t grow, you can’t improve, you can’t introduce anything if something is impossible.
On the other hand, there’s also something very attractive and challenging in the word impossible.
Paul Fritz, a management Guro, wrote that “There’s nothing more satisfying than doing what everybody else thinks as impossible.”
Look at all the technological gadgets and scientific inventions around you. Fifty to one hundred years ago, people said that it’s impossible to travel to the moon, send a picture through space, or talk to one another while one is in the US and another is here in the Philippines.
Who would have thought that instead of waiting for the newspaper to arrive, you see the actual news where it happens and in real-time?
The advent of Satellite TV, the Internet, Cellular phones eliminated many impossible myths and beliefs.
A lot of things that were impossible yesterday are just normal or ordinary occurrences today.
Flying in an airplane, taking a submarine ride, going to the moon, traveling to other planets.
Robert Kennedy said, “Some men see things as they are and say, why? I dream things that never were and say, why not?”.
So, to declare something as impossible is not realistic anymore. Because faith, time, determination, and action will make something impossible to be possible.
Instead of being depressed, we should be challenged to face things that are declared as impossible.
This is what’s giving me strength and hope as I confront my sickness. I believe in the power of Jesus to make the impossible possible.
