Always More Than You Can Handle

I was getting ready for work this morning and I had a strong urge to write a short post...

The cliche "God will never give you more than you can handle" popped in my head as I started the process of getting ready for work. Then the question hit me, "Will God give me more than I can handle?"

So here it is- I believe that God will most certainly gives us more than we can handle. It's easier to tell someone when they are going through something that God is always nice and that He wants us to be in a world of gumdrops and lollipops all the time. People want to hear that God will take away all of our pain. But the truth is sometimes the only way God can get our attention is to make us go through some things that we can't handle. To have situations happen that will leave us with nothing and put us on our knees...Sometimes He needs us to go through the fire, so that He can then mold us into the person that He wants us to be.

God is the same God today as He was yesterday. If you read the Old Testament in the Bible, you know that God does NOT play. He cannot be around sin. However, because God knows that we are hard-headed and because He has SO much unconditional love for us...He thought of the solution before we could see the problem. Jesus Christ died, so that we could live and have a direct connection with our Heavenly Father. All we have to do is accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior and believe that He died and rose on the third day. #Believe Truly believe that with your heart!

God WILL give us more than we can handle alone, so that we might call on His name to handle it through us and for us. The truth is we are weak and the moment you accept your weaknesses, the moment you are on your knees pleading to God, you will truly then experience the true strength of God within us. Jesus had to carry His cross, so if God made Jesus bare a cross that was way too heavy for Him, don't be shocked when He asks us to do the same. The difference is we deserve the cross we bare. Jesus did not... Find comfort in knowing that life will always be more than what you can handle. Rejoice in those difficult moments as you will find that God ALWAYS has a plan!

God will always do what is just, what is right, and what is for the greater good. As I've said before, our good isn't His good because our ways our not His ways. No, God doesn't want us miserable here in this life, He wants us happy. But most importantly He wants us to experience pure joy and peace ETERNALLY. Meaning forever...forever ever forever ever! ;-) Yes lasting forever! It's all apart of the process and He'll give us more than we can handle to get us there.

Until next time...Rejoice in your process!
