Impossible Nothing

Jesus had just been asked by the disciples why they couldn't cast out a demon.

He tells them ..."because of your little faith...if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move and nothing will be impossible for you."

Nothing will be impossible for you.

I've always imagined that to mean I actually could move mountains, that it is in the realm of possibilities for a believer.

But. What if Jesus meant that if anyone has true but small faith it will soon be impossible for them to DO nothing—

that having even small faith means it will be impossible for me to see need and DO NOTHING.

Have you felt that way? Someone else has called it being ruined. Something breaks inside and you can no longer stand on the sidelines. Faith breaks the heart and NOTHING never looks the same again.

No more giving up. No more doing nothing.

Or perhaps you will loose the ability to BE nothing.

How INTERESTING! If it said, after an encounter with faith, JUMPING will be impossible for you, we know we'd never jump again. A little seed of faith inside of you and suddenly NOTHING becomes impossible. The very essence of NOTHING is now impossible. We'll never BE nothing or DO nothing ever again.

Where do you get that seed again?

To ACT on that impossibility.

The broken longings, healed with poultices filled with faith seeds. Until the heart is infused with courage and the impossibility of doing nothing.

Thank you for the challenge!!
