The longer we were married the more things Tim learned how to fix and the less fixing I needed to do. As the kids came along I started teaching them how to fix things. I wanted my kids to be able to step back from a problem and ask how can I fix this. I wanted them to exhaust all their options before they gave up. (Really I just wanted them to fix the flat tire without me) I realize that this fix it mentality has spilled over into more than mechanics. I have watched as they have delt with relationships, career, and family issues. But I noticed the tools have changed. Now they are relying on their relationship with Christ to fix the situations. (So long grey tape, bailing wire and Mom)
As you go through this next week think about what you are relying on to fix your problems. Are you looking to your mate to fix things? Are you trying to do it all yourself? Are you begging your friends to fix it? Well,,, I happen to know that whatever situation you are in it can only be fixed by the One who is the creator of all things.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
