I will start by saying, please correct me if I am wrong. If you know where these two “words of wisdom” came from, please let me know……
I was driving on the expressway the other day, got off my exit and came to a stop at the bottom of the ramp. This person in front of me had some window cling thing that said, “God only gives us what we can handle.” It instantly reminded me of the other stupid words I hear all the time, “God helps those who help themselves!”
Does it really say these things in the bible? Who originated these sayings? I don’t believe that God expects me to “handle” anything! Isn’t that the problem everywhere we look, the country, the schools, our marriages, etc. Every where you look, we’re all going around trying to handle it. I think God wants us to come to him with everything, that is he is NOT asking us to handle or carry any burden. We may come to him and just cry while he knows the words of each tear drop, or we can yell, or be mad, or whatever……but I know we need not handle it alone. It’s kind of the whole point of HIM. Well that, and so we’re saved.
And who is “giving” us this “stuff” anyway? Is it HIM? People loosing jobs, cancer, hurricanes wiping out entire city’s, abuse, etc. What is he just up there passing this shit out and saying, don’t worry I don’t give you any more shitty ass crap than you can handle. Suck it up cupcake….you can handle this! Okay see ya later!
He never promised we would not have trials (or shitty ass crap as I called it above) he just promised we would not go through it alone. So, I know he does not want us to handle hit .He wants us to trust him and come to him with even the smallest of shitty ass crap we cannot handle. This is what I think. Wow a stupid window cling got me so fired up! LOL.
