I know you can, because "He Can."

There is a simple saying I found a few years back when I was still out in the working world. (Not that I don't work now, but I stay at home and believe me, there is plenty to do.) But this little quote says "Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss it you will land among the stars." Always aim higher, take the higher road in life, try to do something out of reach, because even if you don't quite make that goal, you are still higher than you were before. I believe we are all capable of doing anything, and with God all things are possible (Mk 10:27). So today, when you feel like you can't, try anyway, here are some things you might say, and where you can find God's response. Not all of these have to do with trying, but no matter what you are feeling or what your current situation is, I know you can make it through with God's help.

You say: 'It's impossible' God says: All things are possible (Luke 18:27)

You say: 'I'm too tired' God says: I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28-30)

You say: 'Nobody really loves me' God says: I love you (John 3:1 6 & John 3:34 )

You say: 'I can't go on' God says: My grace is sufficient (II Corinthians 12:9 & Psalm 91:15)

You say: 'I can't figure things out' God says: I will direct your steps ( Pro. 3: 5-6)

You say: 'I can't do it' God says: You can do all things (Philippians 4:13)

You say: 'I'm not able' God says: I am able (II Corinthians 9:8)

You say: 'It's not worth it' God says: It will be worth it (Roman 8:28 )

You say: 'I can't forgive myself' God says: I Forgive you (I John 1:9 & Romans 8:1)

You say: 'I can't manage' God says: I will supply all your needs (Philippians 4:19

You say: 'I'm afraid' God says: I have not given you a spirit of fear (II Tim. 1:7)

You say: 'I'm always worried and frustrated' God says: Cast all your cares on ME (I Peter 5:7)

You say: 'I'm not smart enough' God says: I give you wisdom
(I Corinthians 1:30)

You say: 'I feel all alone'
God says: I will never leave you or forsake you
(Hebrews 13:5)
