What if NOAH didn't build the ark, would there have been a flood?
What if he wasn't obedient to the absurdity of what GOD was asking him to do?
"Now the earth was corrupt in GOD'S sight and was full of violence.
GOD saw how corrupt the earth had become,
for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways.
So GOD said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth.
So make yourself an ark..." (Genesis 6:11-14)
NOAH didn't have a bible to read how the story ends.
He just had blueprints from GOD and a hammer.
He did it ANYWAY.
"Noah did everything just as GOD commanded him" (Genesis 6:22)
GOD chose NOAH to do the IMPOSSIBLE
as he did it ANYWAY.
And we know how his story ends~
as the flood was defeated
as a rainbow sealed the deal.
REAL LIFE. REAL STORY. REAL GOD.
So what if we all did what is POSSIBLE right now~
to follow what GOD is asking us to do
in the midst of the absurdity,
just as another person
who did it ANYWAY
as she walked this real earth~
who scripted the following words~
"People are often unreasonable, irrational & self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends & some genuine enemies;
If you are honest & sincere, people may deceive you;
Be honest & sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight;
If you find serenity & happiness, some may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten;
Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, & it may never be enough;
Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you & God;
It was never between you & them anyway"
Oh it is POSSIBLE to LOVE ANYWAY
only because of the ONE who has asked us to the IMPOSSIBLE~
"Love one another.As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another” (John 13:34-35).
Oh GOD help me & help everyone
to do it ANYWAY~
"LOVE GOD, LOVE PEOPLE" (listen to the song below)
