W3jlf45459252sI’ve heard people say, “God won’t give you more than you can handle.” And a few years ago, when I felt like God was giving me more than I could handle, I thought I’d look for that verse. But I couldn’t exactly find it. I found, “he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear,” but that didn’t seem to infer, “more than you can handle.” I did, however, come across this verse, “We were crushed and overwhelmed beyond our ability to endure.”  I’ve lived forty years now, and I’d sum it up like this: at times, God has given me more than I could handle…and with Him,  I handled it.  The debt, the broken relationship, the fear, the rejection, the addiction, the grieving…whatever we are facing, yes, to each of us, it can feel like it is more than we can handle. That is a valid feeling. But Jesus is a valid Savior, comforter, provider, consoler, healer, redeemer, liberator and friend. And with Him, you and I can handle it. And even if you have let go of God, it’s OK. God has held on to you. He can handle all of it. We need to let him.
