I am sure you have heard the old adage “God never gives you more than you can handle.” I totally dislike this statement! However, I recently heard a preacher state this same thing with a little added dimension. The REASON you are never given anything you cannot handle is because YOU and God agreed you could handle it.
Whatever “it” is, you can handle it. Why you? Why not you? Who else would you select to go through what you are going through? Would you trade your issues for someone else’s? Would you want to?
God has granted you the power to handle anything with her/his help. ANYTHING. Nothing is too difficult, though there may be difficulties present. No thing can beat you, however you can beat yourself.
God loves you just as you are. Messed up, ugly, abandoned, broken. God loves you just as he/she loves each and every one of us. No one is worth more than you. To God, you are strong, beautiful, loving and worthy of love. God loves you- unconditionally.
Isn’t it time you love yourself the same way?
Thanks for reading! Love yourself today!
Happy Mother’s Day to all who mother others!
