All things are possible,’ even if not in the way you expect

Tony Campolo once received a telephone call from a woman who, in despair, had asked him a week earlier to pray in church for her husband who had cancer. The call was to tell him her husband had died. Tony didn’t know what to say, but she quickly put him at ease when she said: ‘Don’t feel bad. When he came to church that Sunday he knew he was going to die soon, and he hated God. He would lie in bed and curse God. The more his anger grew, the more miserable he made everybody around him. It was awful to be around him. But after you prayed for him, a peace came over him and a joy came into him, and the last three days have been the best days of our lives. He wasn’t cured, but he was healed.’
Well, as Jesus said: ‘If you can believe, all things are possible,’ even if not in the way you expect.
