Yes You Can

I hear the phrase “I can’t” come out of the mouth of so many of my Jesus peeps it seriously puts an ache in my heart!


Because those very words are the complete opposite of what God says to be true and too many are missing this!

The phrase “I can’t” kept me in a marriage that was abusive, even after I clearly heard the Lord tell me to go. I believed a lie that said, “I can’t be a divorced single mom of four kids.”

But God!

I turned to Him; He strengthened me; He put His truth in my heart and promised to never leave my side as long as I stayed connected to Him.

He filled me with His peace and His power, healing every broken place of my wounded heart.

Was my life easy once I got the courage to leave? No. Not at all. I lived on barely anything, slept on a couch, and had to learn through extreme loneliness and poverty that I CAN get through this. He is in me!

Through temptation.

Through heartbreak.

Through rejection.

Through loneliness.

Through poverty.

Through lies being spread about me.

Through being both mommy and daddy to 4 kids under 10.

I could do all things through Him!

“I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little.” Philippians 4:12

These passages aren’t something I just passively read in my Bible, close it, and struggle my way through life. Not anymore! They are words I believe and live by. The phrase “I can’t” is no longer in my vocabulary. I believe God’s word over everything I see and feel, including where I know I’m limited.

No matter what life situation I face, and trust me I continue to face hardships, in Him, and through Him, I can.

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

I don’t have to have the perfect set up to experience a strength beyond my human capabilities. I can do all things through Him.

You can too.

Never believe a lie that says you can’t.

He is in you!

Rise in His truth!

You can! 🤍, J
