I'm watching the Preacher's Wife and I'm believing its a testament to what I'm going through. "God will never put more on you than you can bear." Love will come in due time and so will the sorority. Peace and Happiness is just around the corner. Now hopefully, I can start becoming stress free and my eyelid will stop twitching.
My two friends gave me too different points of view on how to view the above statement.
Joe: Sh..it happens to everyone. It rains on everyone.. "Christianity" isn't exempt. Now if you're talking major situations.. you (in general) should make a general assessment and ask yourself if it's self-inflicting. If it is, learn the lesson behind it and stop doing the same sh...it that's getting you (in general) in those situations. If it's not, then you (in general) should do your best to change the environment..thus eliminating the situation.
Tierra: I disagree. I really think people underestimate themselves and that God will not put more on you than you can bear, because he is faithful and has our best interest in mind. specifically referenced in Jer 29:11, i know the plans i have for you, not to HARM you but to give you a hope and a future. i do think God knows all, and just because we THINK we can't handle something does not make it a reality. remember, his thoughts are not ours and are far beyond what we can conceive.
