Yes You Really Can

“There are three simple words that will change your life,”Yes I Can.” We need to learn to stop using the word “Can’t” in our conversations. We need to take the word out of our vocabulary.”


If you are a Christian, the word “Can’t” should not be in your vocabulary. You need to stop comparing yourself to others. What gift that God given to you is special just for you. God is about to give you more than enough. In the book of 1st Corinthians the 2nd Chapter and the 9th verse tell us, “But as it is written: Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.” Words have so much power that it can help you or it can hurt you. You need to choose your words wisely.

President Barack Obama has a quote “Yes We Can”, that can be a great motivation. “It was a creed written into the founding documents that declared the destiny of a nation. Yes we can. It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists as they blazed a trail toward freedom through the darkest of nights. Yes we can. It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from distant shores and pioneers who pushed westward against an unforgiving wilderness. Yes we can. It was the call of workers who organized; women who reached for the ballot; a President who chose the moon as our new frontier; and a King who took us to the mountain top and pointed the way to the Promise Land. Yes we can to justice and equality. Yes we can to opportunity and prosperity. Yes we can heal this nation. Yes we can repair this world. Yes we can.” Do you see how powerful the message from President Obama’s quote motivated so many individuals. He speaks those words with conviction. He really believes what he said in his quote because of the confidence and faith that he have in God. Did you notice that he didn’t mention the word “can’t” at all in his message? If you want a great change in your life then you must change your mindset. You must have a positive mindset. Part of having a positive mindset is that you need to change your vocabulary. You need to transform your negative conversation into a positive one.

There are some individuals mentioned in their conversation that they can’t do anything without even make an attempt of trying their best. They will automatically say that they can’t do this. We as a believer in Christ need to take the word “Can’t” out of our vocabulary. A perfect example, I can’t lose weight. Transform that sentence into I can lose some weight if I make an attempt to put the necessary work in. You must work on your mindset if you want to achieve success. Don’t automatically say that you can’t do something without making an attempt of trying that task. It’s always best of trying new things because it is part of growth. When I am in doubt about something I will meditate on Philippians the 4th Chapter and the 13th Verse said “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.” The scripture didn’t mention I Can’t do all things. It didn’t mention I can do something. It didn’t mention I can do a half of things. This powerful scripture said“I Can Do All Things Through Christ.” In the Christian Faith, we believe that through Jesus Christ all things are possible. This is a reminder of our faith in Jesus Christ that can help guide us anywhere we need to go. In the book of Matthew the 19th Chapter and the 26th verse said “But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.” Man will tell you that it is impossible but with your faith in God that all things are possible. When you know that all things are possible with God then you can really say “I Am Possible.” Also don’t ever allow anybody tell you that you can’t do something. They aren’t telling your story but they are telling their own story. Some people will try their best to tell you that you can’t do this or that. Just because they weren’t willing to put the effort in trying new things don’t let them interrupt your success.

When you surround yourself with individuals that have a positive mindset, then you definitely will be able to say Yes I Can. The reason why that you are able to say that because you know that you can do all things through Jesus Christ. He will always  stand by your side and will never leave you. You must believe in yourself that you can do anything that you desire. You can be the greatest ever but never defeated because you have Christ by your side. Even though sometimes you may lose but you will be able to pick yourself back up and try again. Yes you can do anything if you just try but you have to believe and rely on what you have inside. Through your trials that you can make it through, for your trials will just make you stronger. There are so many people put everything before their purpose. I know people that can really sing but they won’t put their talents to use. You have people who have the gift of writing but they won’t use it. You have individuals that have the passion to start their business but they won’t follow their passion. The reason why that they aren’t using their gifts or following their passion because they are in fear of failure. The worst thing for you is allowing yourself to be a prisoner of procrastination. God has given you those special gifts and you must use them. Why aren’t you using your gifts or talents from God? Tomorrow isn’t promised at all to anyone. In the book of James the 4th Chapter and the 13th and the 14th Verses  said, “Go to now, ye that say, Today or Tomorrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes.” Life is too short and we must live every moment of it. Life hasn’t even promised to us. Tomorrow isn’t promised and not even today is promised. Life may be fragile but it’s precious. A god brings us the miracle of life and it’s beautiful. For God gave the provision, made the decision on your behalf. You can do all things through your faith. You need to take one step forward today and make that passion of yours become a reality. If you make up in your mind that you can just conceive it , believe it then you will be able to achieve it.
