381 - WHat Can You Do?







Phil. 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."




Lord, this morning I have been challenged by You to once again Believe. I can not get away from one single thing that involves believing. It is intertwined in everything in my life and yours! The picture i took in my backyard represents my life at any point in the day. Lots of green growth, but there is always something that is deep within me that is dead or dying. I have to know it is all caused by some unbelief! It can look very deceptive - for the most part life is green, full of life, and actually growing. But when we look close or really examine OR allow Jesus to speak to our hearts about what He sees through the microscope - death is revealed.

I really feel it is my mission to located that death and have it removed one way or another. Well, what i really mean as stated above it is my responsibility to listen to Jesus as He reveals death in my heart only HE can bring to life again. So how does all this relate to the Phil. 4:13 verse above. Exposing death and truly listening to the Father explain what has died in you can be quite scary and disappointing. As i looked across the tennis court net for years and years I would so often see an opponent that scared me or at least a certain shot that she had. I would over and over quote - I CAN do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I can DO all things through Christ who strengthens me. I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me. You get the picture. That whole verse just doesn't have meaning to me, every single word it possess is power!

So I stand before the Lord today asking Him to reveal the death. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I can see, name it, and ask Him to remove it or bring new life to the death in my heart. He will - remember He BARA's us a new heart when needed!! Oh praise you, Lord. I believe. I do i do i do!!! Now help my unbelief too.

To do Your good and Your work, I must be alive and filled - fruity. Father, reveal that death and replace it with life so that more fruit can grow. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!!! I love you!

I can not believe I forgot to tell you that my son did break, fracture, just hairline kind of thing, his left arm. His pitching arm, his dribbling arm, his writing arm, his shooting arm, his......... oh that is so silly - He is safe, he will heal, and HE is so good to us!!! I know I am so blessed! Hopefully he will let me post a picture of his cute little cast later. Little sensitive still!!

Leigh,

I love your transparency and your authenticity! I love that you feel like an old friend instead of a new one. I love that I can always come here and find a good Word in due season! I love that sometimes, many times, I have to print your post and sit down in a quiet room to take it all in and really hear what God is trying to tell me through you.

YOU SO TOTALLY ROCK!!! :)

All this and Jesus, too,
Dori

P.S. Thank you for tagging me! I'll post mine later, but you know that you will be on my list, too.... :)

I will remember Tucker in my prayers. I'll ask my Tucker to pray for your Tucker. Maybe we can start that - they pray for each other. That would be pretty cool and a great way to teach our little guys to pray!
Let me know what you think about that.
I absolutely LOVE how God speaks to you and then you share it to speak with others. Your insight (for lack of a better word) just amazes me. I am so in awe of Him and how He uses you.
You do totally ROCK because you lean on the ROCK!
