I received these products at no cost to facilitate my review. However, all thoughts and opinions expressed are completely my own.
This past Sunday, I had a discussion with a few 4-6th grade students in my Sunday school class about sharing the Word of God with other people. I asked them to tell me a few different ways that we can share Christ with others. They were very quick to tell me that there are numerous ways to do it – and very simple ways to do it at that. They were full of wonderful examples and fabulous ideas. They’re very creative! But then I turned the tables a little bit on them and elevated the conversation.
“So, why do we have so many excuses as to why we don’t do all of the things you all mentioned?” I said. There was silence. I could tell the wheels in their heads were turning. I may have struck a nerve, but the biggest nerve that was struck in that room was my own. They had several different answers to my question, ranging from things such as being intimidated, fear of rejection, not feeling qualified, fear of offending, etc. It seemed to me that a lot of our excuses (including in my own life) boiled down to having some sort of fear about something. I have been allowing fear to sweep over my life, telling me over and over that “I can’t”.
“I can’t do this, because…”. How many times have I said this in my life?
It’s a bunch. Too many times, to be sure. I am not able to do everything. Some days, I feel like I literally just can’t even with many of the obstacles that life throws at me, but I serve a loving and mighty God who CAN, and He fills my life with hope and strength!
One exciting and fun way that I have found to share my faith with others is through fashion. I stumbled across this INCREDIBLE Etsy shop called OriginaliteeToo that shares an inspirational message behind many of their items, and I just can’t even with the cuteness, y’all! 😉
When I saw this “I can’t even, but He can” tote bag in their shop, I just knew it was something that I had to share with all of you! Philippians 4:13 says, “I can do ALL things through Christ who gives me strength!” This tote will serve as a reminder of God’s love and faithfulness to myself and to anyone who I may come in contact with. Isn’t that just awesome?!
I had a lot of fun taking pictures of this tote. It was such a beautiful afternoon! My little girl wanted to get in on the action, too. 🙂
Ah! I just can’t even! Isn’t she the sweetest?
I can’t love her perfectly, but He can. I can’t fill her heart with immeasurable joy, but He can. I can’t always catch her when she falls, and I can’t heal her heart from the pains of this world, but folks, I serve a God who CAN!
Thank you, OriginaliteeToo, for helping share this message with the world.
