I Can Because of Him

Sometimes when I get down about the things I can’t do on my own. Like having my very own car and be able to drive myself anywhere I want to go. Oh to have that independence, how I long for it. But I have come to the realization many times now that I’ll never probably have a car or even a drivers license.

So what do I do when I get down and sad? I look around and see who I can be happy for. This week I got to be happy for my youngest sister Aimee got her drivers license. Yes, it’s true she can now drive. I have rode in the car with her before and she’s a very cautious driver. She was SO excited that she passed the test the first time!! She was very nervous.

Anyways the verses I look to when I get discouraged about not having my independence is Philippians 4:11-13 which say, “Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

These verses help me not to look on the things I can’t do but focus on the things that I can do. I have learned to be content In whatever state I am through God’s strength and guidance. May I encourage you to be content in whatever you are going through in your life. Know that God has everything under control.

  1. Abby, there may be many things you can’t do or never will do, but one thing you do in an outstanding way is to be an encouragement to others. I truly look up to you.


  2. Abigail, I read this years ago from Streams in the Desert, October 30th, by Matheson, “Men ask for a rainbow in the cloud; but I would ask more from Thee. I would be, in my cloud, myself a rainbow – a minister to others’ joy.” Thanks for being an example and an encouragement. You truly are a rainbow. You are an agent of joy. Love you.
