So, lest we start mourning what will be lost, we must celebrate all that’s being gained through this process. “I can” instead of “I can’t” is a powerful little twist for a girl feeling deprived. -Lysa from Made to Crave
This “process” refers to the way we think about ourselves in a given situation. Sometimes we may feel deprived because we are on a weight loss journey and can’t have that delicious looking bite of cake because if we do, it will go straight to our hips. Sometime’s we feel deprived because we long to live the american dream, and we aren’t quite there yet. Sometime’s we feel deprived because we have asked God so many times for something and it just hasn’t been His timing yet, or His will.
Changing the way we think and believe can move us forward from the feeling of deprivation and mourning what is lost, to the feeling of celebration, in knowing that there is so much to be gained in the process. Like the process of losing weight and finally seeing results in the mirror after all that hard work, the process of budgeting and finally seeing money being saved, or the process of waiting for God’s perfect timing and knowing His plans are best for you.
At some point in the process, you will start to see results and know it was all worth it.
Changing the way we think is empowering. Saying “I can!” to yourself can give you that boost of confidence you need to get through the hard times.
So whatever it is you are dealing with, remove that nasty letter T from the word “can’t.”
Turn it into I CAN.
