Through Christ...

Who strengthens me.
I had a rough morning.  I was feeling overwhelmed with so many things so decided to take a walk in the neighborhood.  I walked, prayed, cried, then turned my heart to Scripture and songs.
As I was walking around a nearby baseball field I began thinking about the verse "I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me".  I started to think through all the things that have me anxious and overwhelmed...
"I can teach French, through Christ, who strengthens me.",
"I can say goodbye to my boys as they go to college, through Christ who strengthens me.",
"I can adjust to a "new normal" at home with all the changes, through Christ who strengthens me."
"I can trust God for our finances, through Christ who strengthens me".  
"I can _______________  through Christ who strengthens me."

"Ah, Lord God! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you...
Behold, I am the Lordthe God of all flesh. Is anything too hard for me?"
from Jeremiah 32
