“I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose—I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.]” Philippians 4:13
I can do what?
Who does What?
I made up this chant as I pedaled up a mountain…twice.
I was in Mount Tremblant, Canada, in a triathlon bicycling up a mountain. Good Lord, what was I thinking? Obviously I hadn’t thought much that the name of Mount Tremblant would, in fact, include A MOUNTAIN! Duh.
If you’ve never bicycled up a mountain, I’m sure you get the idea, it ain’t easy.
I made it to the top, twice! And back down again, and ran the six miles without stopping to to the finish line!(After swimming across a lake at the start line).
This physical challenge was just an example of the life challenges we had followed God into in the last few years. My husband and I had signed up to go into ministry, homeschool our kids, and adopt a child all in the same three year period. I lot of days, I literally felt like I was pedaling up a mountain in life, trying to stay steady and not fall over, but going very slow and hard labored. The triathlon was a way to show us, we could do ALL things through Christ, even physically, who strengthens us.
Have you been there, friend? On a section of life that seems like a long mountain?
It’s hard, but it’s where your relationship with Jesus gets really, really good.
It’s where you realize you can’t do ANYTHING WITHOUT HIM.
Like, you can’t even pedal one rotation on the bike without making up a chant for Philippians 4:13.
If you’re on a mountain now, take this passage, Paul’s testimony, my testimony, and put it to the test.
Jesus is so faithful to be our strength.
I love the amplified bible above that says,
“I am ready for anything and equal to anything through HIM who INFUSES me with inner strength and confident peace.”
In Christ, you have the strength of God running through your veins.
You lack nothing. ❤
What area of your life could you use a little Philippians 4:13 chant in? Try it!
Affirm He is your strength with your tongue and your heart.
Love Him with all His Strength inside of you!
Two more days of growing in loving God with all of our strength and we wrap up the “ALL of ME” study! Stay tuned for a special announcement about what’s next for the month of March leading up to Easter!!!
What’s going on here?
Tell me about the Study!
It’s a four week study
Week 1: Heart
Week 2: Soul
Week 4: Strength
Each week has 5 days of study that you need just 15 minutes to complete
Each day of the study consists of two pages. The first page starts with a short prayer, a short passage of scripture to read, and reflective questions. The second page is a beautiful display of His Word, with a sequence of receiving His Word in love, Giving God love in return through applying His Word to our lives, and making a plan to love others, helping us to be intentional about fulfilling the greatest commandment!
I’ll be blogging through the study right here everyday, so don’t forget to follow the blog to receive emails on weekdays.
I will also be posting one video a week on Sundays to get you motivated and keep you ready to start the next week with some insight and encouragement to help you along the way!!!
