I can do all this
through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13
wrote a poem this morning about my son. He was born with cerebral palsy, up to
50% brain malformation, a brain cyst, and developmental delay. At age 3 he was
also diagnosed with autism. He faces a lot of difficulties. I wanted this poem
to challenge people, including myself, who complain about how tough life is. My
son doesn’t complain. He just overcomes. This is definitely a Philippians 4:13
When you think it can’t be done,
A life destined for pain.
They said he
might not walk.
would he crawl?
But lots of
he has made.
He runs and
throws and kicks.
Don’t tell me
you can’t do it.
That there’s too
much to go through it.
He’s proof it
can be done.
got excited when I finished this poem. I like this poem. I think it is
inspiring. I think my son is inspiring.
inspires you? Do your children or grandchildren inspire you? We all have the
potential to inspire one another to greatness. Philippians 4:13 says we can do
all things, even inspire others, through Christ. Maybe more important than
asking the question who inspires you is asking who would you like to inspire?
Pray for someone who needs your godly inspiration today and then go out of your
way to do something special for them.
