In reminding myself of that fact I remember that every difficult situation we’re in is a chance for growth or a lesson to be learned or, in the best of cases, a chance for overcoming the difficult situation and coming out victorious. Now it’s not easy for me to believe this when I’m in the middle of it. But if I keep reminding myself of it, I can usually distract myself long enough until I’m through whatever it is that is wearing on me.
I don’t think the saying “God never gives us more than we can handle” was meant about the crowding caused by tourists but that of the amazing thing about having faith in God. It doesn’t matter how small or how large the problem is. God never gives us more than we can handle because we never have to handle it alone. And that is the most important thing to remember when we’re handling difficult situations.
