Readings for Today

Do you have faith? Do you really believe God can do anything? Do you really believe that God will always do what is best?  Obviously, the thought that an old woman can have a child is remarkable indeed? It is so unbelievable that Sarah laughs. Abraham laughs.  But the Lord comes through, as always.  Faith is rewarded. Abraham and Sarah listen and ultimately believe.

What seems impossible in faith? What is it that seems unimaginable? Can you believe in God even when it is difficult?  When it is hard? Today’s readings remind us that for people of faith, God can do anything.

Readings for Today

Abraham must have thought it strange indeed.  That after all of these years, God was going to give a son to him and Sarah.  He was old.  She was old.  Long past the time for thinking of parenthood.  And yet, their long hoped for dream comes true.  But it seems so incredible to Abraham, he laughs.  It is so unbelievable.

God asks us to believe the unbelievable.  God asks us to imagine eternal life with Him.  God invites us into a relationship that can be far more than we could ever imagine.  If we trust, as Abraham trusted, God will do incredible and marvelous things.  So go ahead, laugh.  For God’s love, power and care is too much indeed.
