The answer is YES.

So the other day a friend of mine reminded me that I was taking a passage of scripture out of context: ‘God will never give you more than you can handle’. I was using it in relation to a stressful week and trying to give my dear friend hope that this too shall pass, and beyond that she will not get crushed by the weight of these projects. The passage is in context of temptations, not heavy burdens. So this got me thinking… will God ever give us more than we can handle?

I realized the answer is entirely a loud and resounding YES. Yes he will…

He gives us more than we can take on our own… but it is impossible for him to give us more than we can take WITH Him. In fact when I am so stressed that may just be Him reminding me that he is present and is walking with me, and to re-give him my burdens. That to me is a beautiful thought… and so I wanted to share.
