Through Christ {Something to Think About}

For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.
Philippians 4:13 NLT

When I think I can’t take one more thing laid upon me or stand a situation one minute longer…

I can, because the strength I need comes from Christ.

When I feel I’m at the end of my rope…

I’m not, because all I need comes from Him. He lengthens the rope so I can hang on a little longer and go a little further.

Through Christ I can do what He asks, and go where He leads, no matter the obstacles.

Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am.
Philippians 4:13 The Message

In Christ,
Laura

  5. Apart from Him I can do nothing. In my weakness He is strong. I love that He lengthens my rope so I can hold on just a little bit longer. Thanks for linking up with Fresh Brewed Sundays!

  9. There are times when I don't know how I could possibly go on. But He supplies me with the strength to go on. Sometimes it seems when I come to the end of myself, He's right there.

  12. I love this verse...a friend gave me her paraphrased version..."I can do all things through Christ who continually pours His strength into me." It is so true, when we think we can't God can!!! He gives us just what we need.
