They say He won't give me,
more than I can handle.
Well is it true, can it be,
because my life is in shambles
I try to go to church
but even my pastor
doesn't have answers
for what I'm going through.
Lord what can I do?
If you're out there
Please come and show me through.
Have you ever felt this way?
Actually this is a good place to be. It is a common thing to hear in the Christian world: God won't give you more than you can handle. But that statement isn't true!
God never promised we wouldn't go through anything we can't handle, but He did promise He would help us handle it!
In fact, God told us to cast our whole burden on Him! In other words, if we will let Him, He will take it from us completely. But we need to seek Him through it!
What is it that you are going through?
What has been weighing you down?
What has been holding you back?
The Bible says that we should cast all of our cares on Him (1 Peter 5:7). Jesus wants it all! He wants to take our burdens and cares and He promised that His burden is light (Matthew 11:30).
This lie has been going around for many years now that God will not give us anything that we can't handle so when we hit those situations we think we have to take care of it ourselves. If we can't we feel like we are weak or a failure.
But God never meant for you to handle it alone!
He is there for you, waiting for you to run into His arms. He wants to hold you and comfort you and strengthen you. He is simply waiting with arms wide open for you to turn to Him, and He will bring you to victory!
