To all the guys out there:
“If you care about a girl in a special way, tell her! Because one day she might not be there to listen. Neither of you will live forever. She might move across the country, find another passion to occupy her mind or give up on you. Life is too short not to tell the truth to someone you deeply care about. She doesn’t have to be the center of your world. She’s not suppose to be. Just let her know she’s a part of it. Don’t waste time. She’d be crazy to not want to know how you feel. Man up. Tell her if you aren’t ready and if she has any sense, she’ll wait till you both are. She should know you aren’t her Salvation. Feel free to tell her in a big way with a banner across the sky or a small way like whispering it in her ear.. And just maybe, Lord willing, something beautiful will come from you opening your heart and pursuing her. I dare you.”
Most of us have had someone tell us that phrase. Ya know, It’s one we hear when we’re struggling or having a hard time getting through something. It’s suppose to be words of encouragement, but at times it doesn’t sound so encouraging. So here goes…
God doesn’t give you more than you can handle.
Think about that for a second. There may have been a time in your life, when you felt like you were carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. Then those words come to your mind. More than you can handle? Right now life may seem too hard for you to handle, but when you think about it in terms of this. God must think you are pretty strong. He must believe in you more than anyone else believes in you and he knows you better than anyone else. If He has faith in you, you don’t have to worry about it. If His perfect arms are going to carry you through this, you don’t have to worry about it. If the future looks dark to you, but God knows what’s next, you don’t have to worry. Worrying only gives light to the lack of faith we have in His unfailing strength. His grace gives light to our unknown future. His grace is always there unlike other things that change in our lives.
Jeremiah says that He has plans to prosper us and not to harm us. Plans to give us hope. When was the last time you looked at life that way? Like it’s in His hands. Like you have every right to walk into the future blind folded, in faith, trusting that he knows what’s best for you. When was the last time you lived like that?
