My grandson asked me one time “grandpa when do you think the time machine will be invented?” I said “never! It is impossible.” He was eight and I could see his little spirit was devastated. Later that week, my wife and I watched the movie the Martian. It was awesome. As I sat watching the actors walk on mars I recalled when I was eight, man walked on the moon for the first time. I thought of my eight year old grandson, Robert Allen Mitchell the third.
After the movie I called my daughter and asked if he was awake, it was ten pm on a school night, he wasn’t. I asked her to wake him up and that it was important. I could see his sleepy little face in the phone when he said hello. I asked him if he remembered his question about the time machine and he said he did. I told him I might have been wrong about the answer. I told him that when I was eight we walked on the moon and a hundred years earlier people would have said that it was impossible. I said they were wrong.
I said maybe in a hundred years we could invent one, he said “I was thinking fifty!” We made plans on building a time machine out of our erector set. The next day I picked him up from school two hours early and we went and saw the move, the Martian. We were the only two in the whole theater, it was magic. It was a moment of grace. What is impossible today may be possible tomorrow.
You have heard it said “that with God all things are possible.” I don’t think that means that God can do anything. I think that means we can do anything with God, with means together. It is a word like yoked.
When I say God I don’t mean it in the religious sense. I am not a religious person, I do believe in religion and I am a spiritual person. When I say God I mean God, the universe, life, breath, The Spirit, karma something and someone bigger than ourselves, a higher power. I do not want to define what or who God is in this article. I invite all religions and all beliefs, whether they are atheistic, antagonistic or religious to practice the principles of faith. I believe in all humanity and that we should not be divided by our beliefs or differences.
I say all this just in case you have a desire that is impossible at the moment. Maybe your desire at this present time is impossible for you to have. Maybe you’re in prison, or need healing or a miracle or maybe your situation is so dire that you feel it is impossible. All things are possible with God, when you’re yoked with the creator. Read what yoked means and as you do say in your mind that God is on your side, He is not against you, He is not mad at you and imagine for a minute that you are yoked with the universe and with God.
Yoke means to be, an associate of, attached, bracketed, buckled, combined, conjoined, connected, coupled, fastened, fixed, harnessed, hitched, linked, secured, strapped, tied, untitled, wedded to God.
The opposite of yoked is; detached, disconnected, disunited, divided, divorced, lost, apart, released, separated, severed, unfastened, unlinked, unlocked and untied to God. Wow! So be yoked to God and all things will be possible.
