More Than You Can Handle

Have you ever felt like you’ve been handed more than you could handle? That one phrase that says “God doesn’t give us more than we can handle” cracks me up because that is completely false! God DOES give us more than we can handle and you know what girl, be thankful for it. God gives you more than you can handle so that you can, on your face and on your knees, cry out to Him and depend on his faithfulness more than your abilities. I lack and fall short every day but God has always been faithful and He has always been able.

We can grow so weary, so use to the motions of life that we develop this tunnel vision. We let our unwanted circumstances overtake us. Sister, you realize that you can prevent that? Your circumstances are not under your control, but how you view them every day and every week are completely under your control. You can CHOOSE joy and contentment, or you can CHOOSE complaining and fear. What will you choose today? Don’t become weary girl, become wanting. Wanting more of Him: His grace, His control, His face, His mercy, His love. Lay it at His feet, pick yourself up, and reap the benefits of following Him.

So today while you’re sipping that coffee and thinking about the million things you have to do, rest in this.. “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” Galatians 6:9
