Here's your Push-Me-Through-A-Tough-Time List: 

  1. I CAN - Yes, say it like you mean it! Philipians 4:13 says, "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength." There ya go. Whatever's required, you got it. Whatever it takes, it's in you.
  2. I WILL FINISH - You may have just started or you may started so long ago that you can't remember it. But it's not over. You're not over. Philipians 1:6 lets you know, God's going to finish what he started in you. You are finishing. Period.
  3. I WILL FIGURE THIS OUT - When confusion slaps you hard and you don't know how to solve your dilemna, hang on to 1 Corinthians 10:13. "All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he'll never let you be pushed past your limit; he'll always be there to help you come through it." (MSG). Your answer is on the way - it'll come to you.
  4. I WILL BE OK - You may not feel ok right now. You may have to swallow this over and over until you get it in your "knower". But I KNOW what Romans 8:28 says about you... All things will work out for good in your life because you love The Lord and you are pursuing him.

Ok, now with these 4 phrases, let's shape a prayer around them so you can keep pushing when you feel like quiting....
