I can do all things

1. I can do all things though Christ,
Who strengthens me each day;
Who hears my voice,
And answers me,
And helps me when I stray.

2. I can do all things through Christ,
Who shares my heavy load;
Who hears my prayers,
And teaches me,
And guides me on his road.

3. I can do all things through Christ,
Who helps me face each fear;
Who hears my cries,
And comforts me,
For he is always near.

He hears my voice and my prayer for mercy (Psalm 116:1; NLT).

I call out to the Lord, and he answers me from his holy mountain (Psalm 3:4; NIV).

He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy (Psalm 28:7; NLT).

2. In all their suffering he also suffered (Isaiah 63:9; NLT).

He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows (Isaiah 53:4; NKJV).

He hears the prayers of the righteous (Proverbs 15:29; NLT).

You call me Teacher and Lord; and you are right, for so I am (John 13:13; RSV).

He guides me along right paths (Psalm 23:3; NLT).

3. I call on the Lord in my distress, and he answers me (Psalm 120:1; NIV).

He hears their cries for help and rescues them (Psalm 145:19; NLT).

Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me (Psalm 23:4; KJV).

  • What a blessed poem of encouragement Ruth! We can do all things in Him, not by our abilities or disabilities but by Him! It is only in Him that I conquer my trials and share His Good News abroad each day. Hallelujah sister!
    I had a problem picking my favourite line Ruth, I couldn’t! Therefore I can only say I love all the lines, the whole thing. May God bless you richly in His peace today.

    • What an overwhelming and generous message. Alan! I just got back from seeing the cardiologist, and here is your message to greet me. Still having trouble keeping up, though, as I think you sent it yesterday. God bless you, always XXXXX

      • Thanks, Alan. It was very frank – basically there are no cancer drugs left that I can take reasonably safely. The cardiologist was very honest, and knows it’s a difficult situation. I’ll be talking to the oncologist again at the end of the month, after my next infusion, but I don’t think there’s any more we can do at this stage XXXXX

      • Thank you so much, Alan. Please could you ask God to give me the calm confidence I need in order to face the MRI scan next Thursday, too? I’m extremely claustrophobic and afraid of the dark. They ask patients to wear a dark mask to go into the tunnel, as the lights are so bright and disorientating. I’d be really grateful for your prayers about this, as it’s weighing on me very heavily now XXXXXX

      • You so kind, especially as you have your own health problems to face and deal with every day. It’s lovely to know that you are praying for me, just as I pray for you each day. Many thanks, Alan. May God bless you both. I hope you will like tomorrow’s prayer XXXXXXX

      • I do hope this family business isn’t something painful or difficult. Hope you can get the time to devote to your writing again very soon XXXXX
