We’re not given more than we can handle. Sometimes I take on more than I can comfortably manage – that’s one of the ways in which my life becomes unmanageable. It happens when I am operating according to my will than the will of God. I believe that God does not expect more of me than I can produce, that alone with the challenges and difficulties I encounter comes strength I need to cope with them and learn from them. When chaos threatens, I’m either taking on more than I should or I am not using the resources available to me.
We learn to arrange our priorities so that we do not get worn out with compulsive activity or busyness. Everything becomes more manageable when we’re not trying to run the show by ourselves. Solid experience teaches us that support is always at hand and that God comes through when we ask for help. I will face today’s tasks, confident that I will be given the ability to accomplish God’s will for me. Inner Harvesst, Elizabeth L.
