Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." ~Matthew 19:26
This photo is taken at my mother's house as I am on my way to put a load of clothes into the washing machine. Yes, I'm used to seeing these docile and loveable lizards on the screened-in porch, but certainly not in the confines of the home. I simply had to snap a picture of this wanton creature who wandered way beyond his comfort zone into uncharted territory.
And I couldn't help but think that this lizard's inopportune venture would eventually lead to his freedom, if he has the will to seek it.
I find myself caught in a bind
Where is the world I left behind?
All that matters now is lost
How will I accept the cost?
Seek the crevice, seek the crack
In the mortar, where the lack
Of vigilance begs a breach
The outside world within my reach
Friends, it is the same lesson we can all learn from the Lord. What seems improbable and impossible for us, God can accomplish in a heartbeat. All we need is faith.
