I was in the shower this morning and I kept thinking about my husband’s deployment that is right around the corner. I was trying to pray, but I kept telling myself I can’t do this. I was thinking I don’t want to do this deployment, I don’t want hm to leave. I can’t, I can’t, I can’t. Then a thought occurred to me: Jesus turns all my “can’ts” into “I can’s.”
What a powerful statement, one that I know was not from myself, but from God and one that He knew I needed this morning. Whether you are going through a deployment or something else right now, I hope this encourages you. Today is a new day and you CAN do this!
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” -Philippians 4:13
