Do what you can't
I love the Samsung slogan, do what you can't. So often, our biggest hurdle in life is ourselves. We tell ourselves that we can't do something because we're not smart enough, fast enough, good enough, old enough... God often asks us to do things that are out of our comfort zone and that we don't think we can do. The good news is that he promises to help us.
Philippians 4:13 says, I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
Hebrews 13:21 says, Now may the God of peace... equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
So don't listen to that voice in your head - you can do what you can't if God is helping you.

Life is Like a Fairytale - Part 2
Sure, we don't all marry princes and live in castles, but we do have something in common with Cinderella, Belle and their peers - we will have trouble in our lives.

Life is like a fairytale - Part 1
Life really is like a fairytale. If you grew up watching Disney movies like me, then you probably dreamed of marrying a prince and living happily ever after. The prince thing isn't guaranteed, but if you love Jesus, the happily ever after is. Revelation 7:17 says, For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be tears on earth, but when Jesus comes again, he will wipe them away. Our happy ending is eternal life with God.
When your sock gets a hole in it, it's easier to mend it when the hole is small, rather that leaving it until it gets too big. When you need to fix something in life, like a relationship or a mistake, it's best to do it sooner, rather than later. Matthew 5:23-25 says, So if you are about to place your gift on the altar and remember that someone is angry with you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. Make peace with that person, then come back and offer your gift to God. In other words, if you have upset someone or wronged them, go and apologise now, don't put it off. It's not the easy thing to do, but it's the right thing.
