I’ve often heard it said, “God will never give you more than you can handle”. I believe the opposite to be true. God often gives people much more than they could ever hope to handle on their own. Why? I don’t know but I suspect that it is to remind us of our powerlessness in many instances and to encourage us to seek help from others or even God Himself.
Let’s not beat around the bush. Life is one great big wonderful but terrifying adventure. It can be as brutal as it is beautiful. There are no do-overs. We get a single shot to make it home. And guess what? We all wander and find ourselves lost from time to time. Enter our Savior. The One whose love and power to heal and example to guide is so magnificent that our frail human minds can’t begin to comprehend.
