TRUTH or DARE

You know the saying, "God doesn't give you more than you can handle".

Do you believe that statement to be TRUTH?

Or...
Do you DARE to disagree?

I'm at a point in my life where I n-e-e-d it to be true. If I cannot cling to that promise, then I am without hope.


And to be without hope is not a place I want to be.

You know- that statement gets me every time! I often respond with well I wish he didn't think I could handle so much. Maybe not the best attitude though. I think that God gives us what we need to grow, change, etc. I also think that there are time things happen that were not in his master plan, but he is still there to help us through it all. And, want to know what else? I believe in you. I know you are a much stronger woman then you ever give yourself credit for. I know you are loving, caring, and wonderful. I'm thinking of you- love ya girl!

I'm sorry these are hard days or you Andrea. Have you ever read Max Lucado's "It's Not About Me"? It's a great book, and it helped me to see struggles and difficulties in a slightly different light. I pray you'll be doing better soon.

He never gives us more than we can handle, because He is right there to carry the burden. We have to be willing to give it to Him....

awww i'm sorry andrea that life has been hard for you. xo sending you a hug.

here's what i believe. (in response to your question) i don't necessarily believe that everything that comes at us is necessarily from God. BUT in the midst of the crap and chaos i believe HE IS bigger, stronger and more sufficient then the heaviest wind that blows are way. for me it has also been in the midst of lifes ugliest battles that HE has shown His love and strength to me in ways i wouldn not have seen it had i not walked this way.

praying for you.

The truth is we can handle NOTHING without Him. Practically very day we have to deal with things that are more than we can handle. Thankfully we have a God who is bigger than all of that and we can trust Him to carry us through.

We can't handle it, but God can. And you can count on that!

Praying for you.

I've been having these same thoughts lately, a lot. Sometimes I just wonder why we have to deal with the stuff we have to deal with. I mean- why?

I believe that God won't give us more than we can handle with His help. I know I can't handle things on my own. Sometimes I wonder if I have to go through hard times because God is reminding me that I have to depend on Him.
