It’s a lie what friends are telling you.

If you haven’t heard the sentiment, “God won’t give you more than you can handle,” consider yourself among the fortunate. This attempt for comforting those crawling through painful circumstances has been repeated for far too long.

My children mean well.

They always do, but in this life, it’s not so much about what you’re supposed to handle. Life was never meant to rest all on your shoulders.

Ever.

My desire is not for you to handle your problem, but for you to hand off your pain to Me. Daily. Whether you whisper it away in the early morning hour, or shout it from the depths of your innermost soul, I want to take that burden from you.
Will you let me?

I’m waiting to refresh your spirit, to fill your heart and mind and body with an unexplainable peace.

Think on my words of truth:

“So the LORD must wait for you to come to him
so he can show you his love and compassion.
For the LORD is a faithful God.
Blessed are those who wait for his help.” Isaiah 30:18
