'I can do all things through Christ that strengthen me.

My Cousin emailed this to me and I wanted to share it with you.....

Here's the story:
A young man who had been raised as an atheist was training to be an Olympicdiver.
The only religious influence in his life came from his outspoken Christian friend.
The young diver never really paid much attention to his friend's sermons,but he heard them often. One night the diver went to the indoor pool at the college he attended.
The lights were all off, but as the pool had big skylights and the moon was bright, there was plenty of light to practice by. The young man climbed up to the highest diving board and as he turned his back to the pool on the edge of the board and extended his arms out to dive, he saw his shadow on the wall..

The shadow of his body, was in the shape of a cross. The man felt a strange feeling, like someone was speaking to him. Instead of diving, he knelt downand finally asked God to come into his life. As the young man stood, a maintenance man walked in and turned the lights on.
The pool had been drained for repairs. Remember; how many times have you gotten out of dangerous or even would-be fatal situations? Ever thought this could be due to the Hand of God? Or do you always think it's due to your might or wit. Send this story to a friend. Yes, I do Love Jesus. He is my source of existence and Savior..He keeps me functioning each and everyday. 'Without Him, I will be nothing.Without him, I am nothing but with Him I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me.'

Phil 4:13.This is the simplest test.If you Love Jesus, and are not ashamed of all the marvelous things He has done for you. Pass this to ten people --and the person who sent it to you!!!!!!!!!!!

Live as though Christ died yesterday, rose from the grave today, and is coming back tomorrow.

To The End

Psalm 62:8Trust in Him at all times, you people;Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah

I love writing, and realize I have a lot to learn but, this is the venue He’s given me. For those who continue to follow me I’m sure you’ll agree trials are something I seem to no much about.

To give a visual view of how often they seem to come in my life I'd have to ask you imagine one who runs track and jumps hurdle after hurdle, knowing there's more ahead with a finish line that doesn’t seem to be in view.

My life continues to be in sink with that runner, hurdle after hurdle, but thanks to God there is a finish line and what I’ve learned in all of this is He’s always with me.
He said he would never leave or forsake us…He’d be with us to the end. What a promise and one only He’s able to keep. As distressing as I’ve allowed the situations in my life to be, and even in my anxiety He continues to stand by me and shed light in areas I’ve never imagined. So my vision is sometimes blurred and in moments of weakness I’ve allowed problems to be bigger than the problem solver. I don’t know about you but I’m so thankful our father is a forgiving one. He knows we are but flesh and I’m sure he shakes his head at me may times, as if to say, ‘Yolanda what did I tell you? Read my words again, focus, believe, and know that I love you.’
I believe he says that to us all.

Brothers and sisters’ in Christ, focus (on Him), believe, and know that He loves you.

2 Samuel 22:31As for God, His way is perfect;The word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.
