Charlotte Mihalakis tells us, “When asked to pick my favorite verse and write about it, I found it hard to do. I decided to pick the one that I say almost every day.
Philippians 4:13 – “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
I grew up and was saved in a Methodist Church where we seldom carried our Bibles to church. The service there might be a verse or two read from the Bible and the sermons were more of a story rather than teaching us from the Bible. As a young adult I did not know GOD’s Word well enough to have verses to rely upon in times of trials, decisions and even in times of praise.
I attended a Christian weekend that was without television, telephone and outside contact. Time was spent in GOD’s Word, prayer and self-assessment. It was at this time when Philippians 4:13 took on new meaning for me. I have learned to go to GOD for everything. I know that if I bring it to the LORD and wait and listen, that there is nothing I cannot do.
I have had many trials, heartaches and difficult times in my life but with GOD, I have made it through each situation and have had my faith increased each time. What joy I have in knowing I am not alone and that GOD loves and cares for me in every little detail of my life.
So, each day I start my morning out by thanking and praising my Saviour as I remember and believe that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
