I can’t handle it


There is something so peaceful about knowing you are exactly where God wants you to be. Often it is not where we thought we would end up and quite often the road we end up on when this peace is found is a road filled with amazing challenges. I remember the first time I experienced that rush of peace in my own life. I was out walking my two dogs and I remember saying to God…

I am not quite sure what tomorrow holds or where this road is leading but I do know with 100% certainty that I am exactly where you want me to be!

The road I was on was a difficult one. I could not see very far ahead of me, but God was driving and I was resting comfortably in the passenger’s seat, trusting He knew the way.

Resting in God’s will is an incredible feeling. Your world can be falling down around you and yet God has this amazing ability to supply us with overwhelming assurance that everything will be okay.

I once read a quote from an author who questioned the saying everyone always says when we find ourselves on roads that seem unbearable. You know the saying… “God will never give us more than we can handle.” The author’s response to this statement was….Really? Of course God gives us more than we can handle. He is always giving us more than we can handle. Why? Cause we were never meant to handle it.

It is too much for us. But for God, well He can handle anything! Sometimes, He just waits for us to ask.

Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you. (Jeremiah 32:17)

    I love this "Resting in God's will is an incredible feeling. Your world can be falling down around you and yet God has this amazing ability to supply us with overwhelming assurance that everything will be okay." I think the key is resting. Will we slow down enough to rest in Him? That seems to be the question for me. When my world falls apart, I know what I am suppose to do, but will I actually do it… thats my challenge!;) Gorgeous pictures…
