Dirt Words!!

God gives no more than we can handle and no less than we deserve.

Often we do not know what we can endure until after a trial of our faith. The Lord says we will never be tested beyond that which we can endure.

Don't ask God to lead your path if you're not willing to move your feet.

It's not about religion and church, it's about your relationship with God.

Every action you take is a seed you sow, and every seed you sow is a harvest you'll reap. You'll never change you life until you change your choices.

  2. Hmmm...God DOES give us things we CANNOT handle every day! Sorry, I don't intend to seem hateful in this bc it's not what I mean. There are ALWAYS things in life that trouble us beyond what we can fathom. That's when our faith in Him is so very important! These are the TRUE tests in life. Yes, I totally agree God gives too feet and two hands and a brain in which to move them. However, when you LITERALLY have given every last bit of yourself, and you still find yourself facing the "giants", you are at a pinnacle point as a Christian. Do you continue trying to solve things on your own, neglecting other things in the meantime, or do you pray up, raise it up, look up, and then WHOLLY GIVE IT UP to Him?!? The old cliché-ish saying should say, "God doesn't put more on you than HE can handle".

    Please, I am a fan. I mean nothing but good.

  3. I agree with Jacklyn Mitchell. And as she said, I don't want to come across as a hater, either. However, I get tired of hearing this sentiment, especially since the quote is nowhere in the Bible. In fact, the opposite concept is reinforced time and time again throughout scripture. I understand that people want to quote I Corinthians 10:13 as their point of reference. The trouble is you can only do this if you misquote it. It states that God will not allow you to be TEMPTED beyond what you are able, and then the end of the verse states He will make a way of escape. This does not say that you will not face trials beyond what you can handle. If the Bible said that, then you would have to say that Moses was able to lead Israel out of Egypt without God's help. It would mean that Gideon was able to defeat the Midianites without God's help. And the examples go on and on. The reason God gives us more than we can handle is to force us to rely on His strength, direction, wisdom, etc. I DO like the alternative that Jacklyn mentioned: "God doesn't put more on you than HE can handle".

    I hope that this is taken in the spirit intended. God bless!
