"I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me." I love it when people share their testimony about the goodness of God and how He brought them through or brought them out. Sure, I can tell you that I go to work and make the money to pay for the things that I get. I can tell you that when I got sick it was the doctors that gave me the medicine to get me well. I can say all of that but what happens when the doctors throw up their hands and say there is no cure? What happens when you have exhausted yourself running around trying to find a job and all you hear is a "NO?" So far, you have been working under your own steam believing that YOU can make something happen, not realizing that your power is limited. There is only so much that man can do by himself. Over the pass couple of days, I watched a movie that was a true story called "Breathe," about a young woman that got pregnant, and had a very bad pregnancy that sent her into congestive heart failure and a coma. The doctors told her husband after a week to let her go. Their words were, "Only 20% of patients come out of this kind of coma." I love what this young man said because he knew without the power of God on his side, there was no hope for his wife. He said to those doctors, "I am not letting her go. You don't know my God." He believed and prayed and song to her and you know what, she came out of that coma. We can try and go this journey without God, but we won't make it. We have a choice. You can do all things without Christ and take a 50/50 chance it will turn out for your good. I'm not willing to take that chance. In my life, it's ALL God and ALL about God. I live the Scripture, "The prayers of the righeous availeth much, because you know what, it does.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believed in him would not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
