I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST ~
Philippians 4:8-13 New International Version
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
10 I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it. 11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
YES I CAN ~
Encourage myself to trust God in all things!
1 Samuel 30:6 ~
David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the LORD his God.

Live by faith and not by sight ~ 2 Corinthians 5:7
Daily living brings so much change. Things we find to be normal and then a sudden change happens. Life is way to short to live in the past or worry about the future. Even the now of life becomes a bit too much, but with God, I have learned to rest in his plan. I am glad that God connected us through words on a page and I never know who reads this. I write from the middle of my heart because I care. I want to share a little hope each day and let you know that you are not alone in life.
I don't know what you are facing today, but never let anyone steal your joy. The devil is a robber of life and wants you to feel defeated and not worthy of greater things in life. I heard it said when the devil reminds you of your past, simply remind him of his future which is hell. God wants you to see your life important and greater things are in this day. I realize that somethings are easier said than done. Today I woke up happy and immediately was faced with a money issue. Frustration came so quickly and then I pushed it off. I must make the best of things and continue to trust that God will make a way. Stopping before reaction is very important.
Your situation of life may seem to big for even God, but remember he is the one who created you and able to take care of you. Believe big and never stop dreaming. God is a promise keeper and wants you to view your life victorious. Each day brings new hopes and opportunities for our lives. Speak these words, "I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST". A new day, a new joy and a new beginning. My prayers continue for the readers of my blog, your family and friends.
Remember ~ you have choices how you handle things and what you think upon today!
