Impossible Love

It may take a few years of trying hard to be good to discover that the Christian life is impossible.

Impossible! Tiger mom nurses baby pigs ...
However, this is not cause for despair but for rejoicing. For only then can we enter into the journey of rest. Christ becomes free to express Himself through us. The One who lives in our hearts ("one with our spirit" - 1 Corinthians 6:17) is enabled to live in us like a hand filling a glove ...

Our mouths speak with Christ's wisdom. 
Our hands heal with Christ's tender touch. 
And our hearts ache with Christ's love. 

When we finally give up "trying harder," the impossible becomes reality!
