God Doesn’t Give Us More Than We Can Handle

How are you feeling today? Stressed? Too many things demanding your time?

We live in a fast-paced world. Demands come at us from all directions. Today we are never unplugged. With modern technology, we are able to connect with work, family, and friends, twenty-four hours a day. And it’s easy to feel stressed. Especially when you look at the news. The world is filled with tragedy, and sometimes that strikes close to home and we cry out—God, why?  

But God’s grace is sufficient.

At some point in our lives, we all lose someone we love. In that time of grieving, it’s sometimes hard to see our way out. The grief bears down on us like a storm and it feels as if we’ll be sad forever.

In 2012, I lost my mom at Easter, and we lost my father-in-law at Christmas.  That year tested my faith. Yet through each moment, and through every tear, He was there.

If you’re feeling stressed, or in the middle of a storm that feels as if it will never end, know this: God is our strength, and because He is our strength, He will never give us more than we can handle. And through it all, His grace is sufficient.

So, whatever you are going through, know that you can always come to Him with your troubles and He will give you rest.

All the best…
