Impossible things are possible

I have been thinking a-lot about impossible things.   Things that I can't wrap my brain around logically.  Take leading a camel through the eye of a needle (Mark 10:25).  If you consider that in the physical sense it is impossible.  How about a miracle.  By definition  a miracle is: A surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is considered to be divine.  When I really stop and think about it impossible things by definition should never happen.  That said we experience things in our lives that can not be explained by logic, science, or mere accident.  Miracles make impossible things possible, and God is the only one who can accomplish a miracle.  Today I am thankful for the small miracles that happen each day.  The fact that my heart continues to beat, that I breath without thinking, that I can give and receive love, and that God has given me the faith to believe that through him the impossible is possible. 

1 Corinthians 13

 1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.
 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
