It always seems impossible until it’s done. (Nelson Mandela, late president of South Africa)

Life is often filled with what seem to be impossible obstacles. We can’t do what we want to do because there isn’t enough money or time, or the people capable of completing the desired task. Many of us are stymied in such situations, but, thankfully, there are people, like Mandela, who persist until the impossible is achieved.

If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, “Move from here to there,” and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you (Matthew 17:10).

Jesus replied, “What is impossible with man is possible with God” (Luke 18:27).
