Philippians 4:13 says:

"I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength."

I think that this verse written by Paul in a letter to the Philippians is telling us that God will give us strength and through Him, we can do anything. We can't do it on our own, but if we call on God for help, we can do anything. I thought about this verse as I was swimming back and forth across the swimming pool at Zeeland Rec. for swimming lessons. I was getting really tired, but all of a sudden, this verse popped into my head. I think God chose to remind me of this verse at that time. All of a sudden, I wasn't that tired anymore and I finished the length of the pool! I love this verse and it is one of my favorite verses.

Here is a prayer to end this devotion: Dear God, please help us to remember to call on you for help because we can't do it on our own. Thank you for being our God and loving us and always watching over us. Amen.
