recently in the past few months, a dear family friend has been very ill. this man is practically my father, so when struck with the news of illness, it was tough to take.
his wife has been good about updating about his health, and recently said something very thought provoking that i wanted to share with ya'll.
"I have always heard and sometimes said that "God will not give us more than we can handle". I don't believe that now. If He did not give us more than we could handle, there would be no need for Him. We can not handle this on our own. We are relying on his faithfulness to see us through. We live by faith and not by sight. If we went with what we "see", it may be enough to overwhelm us. We know there is a plan and a purpose; we will live by faith"
i never thought of it that way. and i agree. no matter what the circumstance, we walk by faith.
thank you for the reminder Mrs. Colleen!
