"I can't do that." We may have programmed ourselves into believing that the situation is too difficult. Finding the strength to face another day, to smile in the fog of living, or to be excited about life in general may seem impossible at times. That's when we really need to turn things over to God, and trust Him. After all, those times when we have trouble seeing clearly are the things faith was made for.

Deuteronomy 33:27 reads, "The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms."
