I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much.
Just the other day one of my DIL's said much the same thing to me. She said, I know God isn't suppose to give us any problems we can't handle…but... She's been having a lot of sleepless nights because her daughter is cutting teeth right now and not sleeping much at all during the night.
You never know what you've got until it's gone.
We don't think of how much sleep means to us until we don't get much. Having had 7 children I know that sleepless nights are part of being a mom. You learn to catch a nap or to sleep when they are sleeping if you can.
It would be wonderful if life had no problems, but along with death and taxes, I can say that problems are a part of life.
We learn to roll with the punches as much as possible. Nothing is ever going to last forever. I know with certainty that there is going to be a time in my DIL's life that she'll be looking back at this time of sleepless nights and wish that all her problems could be this simple.
I know that I look back to the times my children were small and remember what carefree days they truly were.
With little ones the problems are small, when they get older the problems will get bigger. The older I get, I've found that there are no problems in life that our dear Lord can't handle. He does a great job of taking care of what I can't. I just put all my troubles in a basket and then hand them over to Him. No matter what comes before and regardless of what follows, God is always there, always in the present. No matter when. No matter where.
God gave burdens, also shoulders.
