I can do it! Oh, I remember the first time I heard my son say these words.
You know the age, right? Around two or three years of age, a child begins to explore his or her independence.
I can do it!
Confession: I've said those words too. I can do it!
And I want to do it, do it all. I want control over my life. But I can't! There I've said it.
I can't do it all. I can't control my life in every detail.
UNLESS . . .
I look to Christ for strength.
I live in His Word, reading daily.
I commit to remembering that in Him I can do so much more.
Because He, and He alone, can provide what I need to
do what my life requires, my life as He sees it.
My life is not wholly my own, but
a shared existence with and through Him.
Then, partnering with Christ, I can do all things --
all things that He has planned for me.
Like a seed planted in the ground can't grow unless it is watered and fed and watched over, I need to be nourished by Christ's love and strength.
What about you? Can you do all things? Wouldn't it be easier
with Christ providing for you the strength and the guidance
you really need?
Think about it, won't you?
