Quote of the Week // 44th Week

Quote of the Week - 44th Week Simply Megan Joy Blog.png

Audrey Hepburn was a British actress born in 1929. She was once dubbed the third best female actress in the Golden Age of Hollywood. Hepburn starred in many box office hits like, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Roman Holiday, Sabrina, and My Fair Lady. She was a well-studied ballet dancer, and in her later life, a UNISEF ambassador in the 1990s. Sadly, she died at age 62 of appendiceal cancer in Switzerland.

I can just hear those words spoken in her perfect accent! The cleverness of the quote just makes me smile. I had never known that little secret about the word “impossible” before. Just add an apostrophe and you have a whole new meaning to the phrase!

The definition of the word “impossible” is: “something not able to occur or be done.” It means that something is positively, without a doubt, absolutely not possible. Reading the definition got me thinking. It reminded me that nothing is impossible. All things are possible, with God.

But what about wildly impossible things, like talking animals, walking on water, and surviving an over one-thousand-degree fire? These things seem impossible, right?

 Read Numbers 22:28, where it tells us about Balaam’s donkey, speaking out loud. Also, in Matthew chapter fourteen, we find the story of two different people walking on water. Finally, in the book of Daniel chapter three, is the telling of three men who were thrown into a fiery furnace, and lived, without harm to any of them. All of these things were done through God and by God.

With God, all things are possible. The word “impossible” doesn’t apply when it comes to God’s abilities. No matter how out of this world, different, or unusual it is, God can do it and with God’s help we can do it too.

So the next time someone tells you that something is impossible, think of Audrey Hepburn’s little secret in that word, and know that with God, all things are possible.


Did someone ever tell you it was impossible to achieve or do something?

What do you think those three stories in the Bible prove to us?

What is your favorite Audrey Hepburn movie?

  1. I love how you connect what seems impossible with scripture! Amen!

    When I was looking at college, I had a journalism professor tell me I would get no where with my writing. She didn’t look at what I had brought, simply told me, “You won’t get anywhere with that kind of writing.”

    1. Yep, I, too, have found that writing professors think it much easier to not read your work, and then give you a bad grade. It seems to be their lot in life!
      And then she told you that your writing won’t get you anywhere! Wow! And now, just look at both your blogs! I wish that professor could see your writing now!

      1. I wonder too. I went on an orientation day , at a Christian college nonetheless. God used it though because I knew I already wasn’t going to go to the school, I had for years, but I knew Gid was telling me no. Well, my mom pushed me into trying to view the school anyway, and as soon as she heard the words out the professor’s mouth, she was there. We walked out and she told me, “Ok, I’m sorry, this school isn’t for you. I see now.”

        1. That was a Christian college! I’m glad your mom saw that this was not the right college for you in the end. Sometimes it’s hard to know what will turn out to be a good (or bad) situation. At least you knew then to steer clear of that college.

          1. I still think highly of the college overall, but it was one I knew God didnt have planned for me, and I had wanted to go to it since I was 13. But God was like nope. And so, I followed, mom just took a little longer lol. 🙂

  2. She was amazing and had this “something” about her that is for sure. I love how you tied this back to with God all things are possible, and I feel that is what these three stories in the Bible are telling us too. He can do, and use anything because well He created everything :):)
