Through Christ

Philippians 4:13 New King James Version (NKJV)
13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

I wrote about the importance of this Bible verse to me. Today I want to write about the importance of the verse overall.

Every obstacle or challenge, whether it be a financial problem or a family problem or a sickness or whether it be spiritual, through grief, through strife, through sin and addiction anything and every battle can be faced by just looking at this verse.

There is hope in this verse, all things are possible through this verse.

Truly all things are possible through Christ, we see this not just in this verse but throughout the New Testament.

The blind saw, the hungry were fed with little, the dead were raised, demons were defeated, sinners immersed deep in their sin were saved, miracle after miracle.

We are saved through Christ, He chose to die for our sins, all we have to do is accept His sacrifice.

There is hope in God, He believes in you, believe in Him.

Honor Him, love Him, do all things through Him.

Thank you God, truly I can do all things through You who strengthens me.

Have a blessed week,
Chris

God’s Birthday Gift To Me

Philippians 4:13 New King James Version (NKJV)
13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

That is one of the most important verses in the Bible. It is something I repeat to myself and pray about when I am scared or anxious or feeling depressed.

The only One who knew this was God, it was one of our special prayers.

However, recently  I have been feeling depressed about a few things, the biggest being my writing. I am trying to be a children’s author and the process of finding an agent is very difficult, you put a lot of effort in to querying and most agencies will only send a reply if they’re interested.

This can become frustrating and makes me question if I am good enough.

I have been struggling to even continue writing.

While all this is going on my birthday came and my wife did a great job throwing me a mini party, it was a lot of fun, yet nice and relaxing. She handed me one of my last gifts, it was a small box.

I opened it, it was a wooden pen with a Bible Verse,
Philippians 4:13 New King James Version (NKJV)
13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

I couldn’t believe it. I had never told her how special that verse was to me and haven’t  even opened up to her about my struggle lately.

How amazing is that?

It truly was a gift from God.

I am very blessed man, thank you God for everything.

Thank you God for my wonderful wife, she is the best gift I have ever received.

Have a blessed week,
Chris
