I can do ALL things through Christ who gives me strength!

Some of us (myself included) are guilty of adding these things onto the end of that verse. "I can do all things except...


-stay on a budget

-keep my house clean

-give up cable TV

-stop eating chocolate

-stop itching mosquito bites

-sponsor a needy child

-be a missionary to a foreign country

-be a missionary in my own neighborhood

-discipline my kids consistently

-cook meals for my family instead of eating out

-fill in the blank with whatever YOU "can't" do

If you try to do it without God, yeah, you'll fail. If you ask for His help and continually seek Him , He will give you supernatural power. From the smallest thing to the largest, He can help you. Don't say "I can't", say "With Him I can".

It's only by the grace of God that we do anything.
