Special Food Drive – We need your CANS!

“I can’t do it”, says Daniel as he throws down his skateboard.

Frustration was trying to get the best of him. He was losing the belief that he could ever be good at the sport. And no matter what I said, he had convinced himself of this thought, “I can’t do it.”

I caught myself thinking the same thing, when I was up against what I thought to be an impossible task. I felt as if, “I can’t speak, I stutter, I giggle, I lose track of what I am going to say, I am so distracted when I speak in front of others, I can’t do this.”

But then God handed me a CAN of courage. A CAN-did friend who said, “You CAN do it, because Christ is with you.”

Attention Friends: I am collecting all your CAN Goods.

Job (a man in the Old Testament) had this CAN in his cupboard and he donated it a very long time ago and it is still forever preserved.

Job 42:2
“I know that you CAN do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted.”

And check out the cupboard of this widow in 2 Kings 4.

“The wife of a man from the company of the prophets cried out to Elisha, “Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that he revered the Lord. But now his creditor is coming to take my two boys as his slaves.”

Elisha replied to her, “How CAN I help you? Tell me, what do you have in your house?”

“Your servant has nothing there at all,” she said, “except a small jar of olive oil.”

Elisha said, “Go around and ask all your neighbors for empty jars. Don’t ask for just a few. Then go inside and shut the door behind you and your sons. Pour oil into all the jars, and as each is filled, put it to one side.”

She left him and shut the door behind her and her sons. They brought the jars to her and she kept pouring. When all the jars were full, she said to her son, “Bring me another one.”

But he replied, “There is not a jar left.” Then the oil stopped flowing.

She went and told the man of God, and he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debts. You and your sons CAN live on what is left.”

What kind of CAN goods can you bring to the “Special Food” drive?

I have quite a few CANS of Courage that I am passing along.

Philippians 4:13
I CAN do all this through him who gives me strength.

Maybe you have a can of Corinthians in your Cupboard. We have been a little short of CANS of Chronicles, so if you do please consider donating a few CANS.

Go ahead, You CAN do it!

Disclaimer: This is NOT a literal call for your Campbell cans, remember the subtitle of the blog. You are dealing with a woman who has a metaphor mind.

I am looking for you to leave a CAN comment. If God CAN do what He says He will do, and if you CAN do all that God says you CAN do, then leave that CAN of courage on the step of our hearts. What CAN God do for you and I? What CANS are you willing to give?

I CAN speak!

CAN I get an AMEN? 🙂
