 I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 NKJV

All things means everything, right?

Yesterday, the Word said give thanks in everything. Some days that is harder than others.  Today, I enCOURAGE you with the words…I CAN!

I can because He did.

He gives me the strength to do.

I can give him thanks in everything.

I can do the impossible with him.

I can keep my peace in the midst of chaos. 

I can love my enemy.

I can forgive those who hurt me.

I can forgive those who hurt others I love.

I can refuse to be offended.

I can only because of Jesus.

I can because, as I began to write this encouragement, Holy Spirit stopped me and told me that  it was ok to go get the Thanksgiving sales paper.

I can because on what could be a stressful Thanksgiving morning with all the hustle and preparation…

 God painted the sky with the most glorious vibrant magenta color. Magenta happens to be my very favorite color.  His artwork took my breath away.  It stopped me in my tracks. He said,

I love you! Look what I CAN do and with me, you can do anything and everything!”


 I enCOURAGE you to believe you CAN, too!
