hunter177 i would have to disagree with your statement about God not giving us more than we can handle. If that was the case there would be no reason for us to worship God. God gives us more than we can handle all the time. He expects us to turn to him and rely on him in times of need. If he never gave us more than we could handle then there would be no divorce, death, abuse, murder, theft, stress, etc.... As Christians we have to depend on God and pray to him to guide us and direct us in our lives. This also includes during times of trouble. There are many times in my life when I have much more on my plate than I can handle, but God helps me through it. This is also why alot of non-Christians fail in their lives... they fail to seek God's help during their overload and they end up failing at whatever it is they are trying to accomplish.
God also gives us more than we can handle because he wants other Christians to help each other out. No one can go through this life all by themselves. Being a Christian means that you depend on your brothers and sisters to help lift you up in time of trouble and in time of stress. By doing this, you become more Christ-like. This in effect, is our main purpose on this earth!
Now that said.. I DO wish God didn't give us more than we can handle.... life would be alot easier! But then again, there would be no reason for God.. we could do it all on our own.....
...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!
