Good evening everyone…and how was your Friday? Mine was busy…but I’m still alive to tell you about it…lol! Seriously…I praise God tonight, for all He has brought me through…especially with a bum foot! Well let’s see…first, I finished my online work this morning…and then it was off to the kitchen, to prove to my afflicter (Satan); that I could truly do all things through Christ, which strengtheneth me. Have you ever made a list of some things you needed to do and then thought to yourself…ohhh, this isn’t that bad…only to find our later that it was much more than you thought you’d have to do? Well, that’s exactly what I was saying to myself…before entering the kitchen; but as I did enter the kitchen…to prep some food, for the next couple of nights…I just kept my mind focused first on God…and then I focused my thoughts on the time I would have off, for doing all the work today…and you know what…I survived. I’m not for sure how I will be walking later tonight…but the important thing is that I did do it.
You know…so many times, we let the words… “I can’t;” be the roadblock; that not only stops us in our tracks…but also stops the power of God…the One who can help us to see that we can truly do anything through Him.
I know that most of us are familiar with the Bible verse in Philippians 4:13; but I would like to share it with you anyways…and we read… “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” You know…how are we ever going to truly see that we can do anything through Christ, when we allow the words “I can’t”…to block the power of the One, who can do all things?
As I did some cooking today…my foot and leg was trying to convince me that I would never finish what I started; but the minute I looked beyond those thoughts, to anticipate God’s help…that’s when the help came to me…for it was His still small voice within my spirit; that truly took me one step at a time…through moments that I would have never come through on my own. I’ll tell you…I’m so glad that God is there for me! No matter what I do for Him…and no matter what I accomplish in this life; I know without a doubt that it’s only because of Him; that I do accomplish all things.
Tonight, I might be experiencing a little more pain than I did this morning…but that’s not what my mind is focusing on. Instead, I am seeing that I can accomplish anything…that is, if I have God leading the way…with no roadblocks in His way.
Maybe there is something in your life that is attempting to stop you in your tracks. Maybe the thought of “I can’t” crosses your mind, rather than “I can.” No matter what we face…whether big or small, I have come to see that my God can do it all…that is, if we are willing to give Him that chance.
Instead of listening to the voice of circumstance…why not listen for that still small voice of God…One, who longs so much to help you through the tough times of life. One thing I know tonight…I can do all things through a God, whose strength goes beyond my weakness…AMEN!!
Well…time to rest the feet and enjoy a quiet evening! Thank you Lord, for ALL You have done for me today! Have a great night everyone…take care and may the God of peace be with you all! See ya soon!
Goodnight & God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
