Are you a CAN DO or a CAN’T DO?

April 24, 2012 | 3 comments

Someone was complaining to me about all the activities they couldn’t do in their life.
They couldn’t walk very well. They couldn’t find much hope for tomorrow. They couldn’t heal a pain in their body. They couldn’t do this, that and the other thing…and the list went on.
After a while, I thought, “They need to quit thinking of themselves as a CAN’T DO mortal and start seeing themselves as a CAN DO immortal!”
What a relief.
Have you ever gone down the depressing path of “I can’t do this and I can’t do that?” It’s a dark mental place to go, and extremely undesirable.
It’s a choice we make, to think either on the dark side or the side of light. So, it’s important to always make the right choice!
“With God, all things are possible,” Jesus told us. And he knew what he was talking about from experience.
If we try to solve our problems alone, we likely fall into the trap of “I can’t do it,” eventually, for it’s making ourselves into a god, and since there is only one God, the effort is doomed to fail.
But when we ensure God takes the lead and we faithfully follow, “I can’t,” turns into “I can.” Why?  Because God CAN do it! And you, as God’s immortal reflection, can do it too.
So, don’t be a CAN’T DO mortal. Be a CAN DO immortal! It’s more enjoyable.

  1. All’s I know is, you had to have had plenty of “I can” thoughts to find that perfect image of the girl holding the sign! I Googled the words “images of words I CAN” — and variations on the theme — and ZILCH came up. So I gave up! But only because you had already found the perfect illustration. So it wasn’t that I admitted “I can’t,” but just that I have better things to do with my “I can” time! Oops, I mean my “I can immortality.” 🙂
