“With man this is impossible, but with God…”

“Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” — Matthew 19:26

The Bible is filled with dramatic accounts of miracles that happened when God intervened in human events. The Red Sea parted. A virgin gave birth. The dead lived again.

When we’re faced with what seems to be an impossible situation, we’d all like for God to show up with a dramatic miracle that changes everything in an instant. But sometimes, God shows Himself in quieter ways, sending small signs of encouragement or gentle nudges in the right direction. Like the sunsets He created, God’s fiery displays and His quiet light are both signs of His presence in our lives.

In the following pages, you’ll meet people who faced circumstances or followed callings that seemed impossible. Their stories are tales of faith, small encouragements, determination, and in some cases, events that seem only to have happened through divine intervention. What all of these stories have in common is one underlying truth. With God, all things are possible.
