the impossible expert

He believed, hoping against hope... – Romans 4:18

Do you know how it feels to hope against hope? I do. I got married at the nearly impossible age of 38.
Those who married early or who had many suitors to choose from will never know how a single, aging woman with no prospects feels everytime her birthday rolls by.
Instead of hearing a joyful birthday song, I’d hear a deafening alarm bell warning me that my body clock was fast running out of time.
Instead of donning a red dress to party with friends, I’d put on the blues and sulk that I had no “special someone” to celebrate with.
It was depressing, especially coming from a breakup that dashed my hopes of wedding bells to come.
That’s why I feel for single ladies praying for their one true love. And that’s why I pray specially for my single friends who are going through what I went through when I was single. And that’s why I have my book, Confessions of an Impatient Bride.
Because I’ve felt the hopelessness, even as I prayed unceasingly. And even though it seemed impossible, it happened. Because our God specializes in the impossible. Rissa Singson-Kawpeng (justbreatherissa@gmail.com)

REFLECTION:
“God specializes in ‘impossible’ things that are too good to be true.” (Carroll E. Simcox)

In faith, I hold on to Your promises, my Lord.
