From the Front Porch: Is Anything Really Impossible?


Last semester, one of my communication students delivered a stirring motivational speech on what is success or failure in business.He encouraged the class to stretch themselves beyond conventional limits to find success. He then cited a poem, which was so inspiring, I wanted to share it with you.  I have no idea who wrote this poem or short speech but I hope you will agree with me that it is impressive and memorable:

IMPOSSIBLE is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given, than to explore the power they have to change it.

IMPOSSIBLE is not a fact. It’s an opinion.

IMPOSSIBLE is not a declaration. It’s a dare.

IMPOSSIBLE is potential.

IMPOSSIBLE is temporary.

IMPOSSIBLE is nothing.

And then, after hearing and reading this poem, I realized the wisdom it contained when I remembered this verse from Scripture:

“For nothing will be impossible with God.”  (Luke 1:37, NRSV)
