Can Comes Before Can’t

My grandmother used to use this saying, “Can comes before can’t”. Words of wisdom and the meaning was so profound. So, here’s my spin on the saying.

I can do all things through Christ, I can’t give up. I can be successful but I can’t complain if I don’t try. I can live my life my way, however I can’t get to where I want by myself. I can show you better than I can tell you something but I can’t be all talk. I can make a mistake,but I can’t make the same mistake over. I can show you how to but I can’t do the work for you. I can recommend you but I can’t interview for you. I can struggle but I can’t be satisfied with that result. I can change things about myself but I can’t change someone else.

Finally, I can easily stop what I’m doing,but I can’t stop my heart and my mind from having a passion and desire to inspire others, help others. If one person, just one person out there is inspired or driven by something I’ve said, I can say thank you but I can’t let what has been given to me go.

Have a blessed day!
