Today’s free SVG cut file is the last one of the group and it’s the one that is the most personal to me. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13 is #7 in the series of 7 Days Of Free Cut Files For The New Year.
I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me
When I said this one was the most personal of the bunch to me, I really mean it. When my husband was sick and in the hospital for that entire summer, I was exhausted. There was only one day that I didn’t go to the hospital and that was because I thought I was coming down with a cold. His immune system was completely wiped out and I didn’t want him to catch something from me. With the exception of that one day, I was there every day and depending on how he was feeling, there were many nights I just stayed. I still had my family to take care of, as well. If it were not for my Mom, my Mother-In-Law, and a host of family friends taking my kids at various times, I would not have been able to care for my husband like I did.
I never knew how he would be from day to day. My husband was incredibly tough, so if he had a bad day, he would try to hide it from me. He clearly didn’t know who he was dealing with. I knew him too well. When I walked into the room, I could tell immediately how our day was going to go. I so badly wanted him to get better and I would look for any sign of that. And when those signs weren’t there on any given day, my hopes were dashed. This was a huge source of anxiety for me as I walked through the parking ramp into the hospital and made that same long walk through the corridor, to the elevator until I finally would reach his hospital room door. I would feel the anxiety bubbling inside as I made that walk day after day. I felt this strange sense of dread and optimism all at once. Some days I would feel physically sick.
I reached a point where I didn’t think I could do it anymore. (Imagine how HE was feeling throughout all of this.) It’s true that God gives you what you need to get through whatever you’re going through. I needed strength so I got in the habit of repeating Philippians 4:13 to myself from the minute I left my car and made that long walk to his room.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me….I can do….”
God did give the strength to help my husband through his battle and God has given me the strength I’ve needed every single day since. I would not be here without that strength.
