At the moment there are many difficult things going on in my life, and there are times where it seems as if everything that could tear me apart hits at one time and there is absolutely no way I can make it through. When I first read this quote I had a light bulb go off in my head, God isn’t going to give me more than I can handle, and I can either use the situations to become bitter and complain and allow myself to fall apart, or I can use them to become closer to Him and praise Him even in my trials. These trials I’m going through are making me stronger, and so much closer to God.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Philippians: 4:13
This is one of the verses I repeat to myself over and over, this has helped me through many difficult situations, when I feel as if there is no possible way I can make it through whatever it is I’m facing, this verse comes to mind and it has such a powerful effect. I find I try so often to get through something on my own and I fail so miserably every time. But when I just sit down, pray, and put it in His hands and trust Him be at peace with the situation that He has put me in, that is when I find the strength to make it through, once I trust in Him and realize that He is my rock and my strength and I can do all things through Him.
