In his poem “It Couldn’t Be Done” Edgar A. Guest writes, in part, the following:
Somebody scoffed: “Oh, you’ll never do that;
At least no one ever has done it;”
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat
And the first thing we knew he’d begun it.
With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it.
It is a wonderful thing to tackle a task others deemed impossible-and do it!
It is, in fact, a wonderful thing to know the task set before us to tackle in the first place. Which brings us to the question of the day: What is it that God would have us do?
I rather like the idea of opening the morning paper or scanning the news on my computer and there it is: An insert from God, with my instructions for the day. Since this is not to be….knowing what God would have us do: is it as simple and as difficult as listening? Listening “with the ear of our hearts?”
