Sometimes it feels as if life is producing more struggles than joys.  You may find yourself overwhelmed by the situations, hurts, and obstacles that have come your way.  However, God has promised through His word to never lay any burden on His people that they cannot handle.

Romans 5:3-5

New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)

Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.

The Lord will never give us more than we can handle. It is a tough realization to come to, but it is a promise that is everlasting!  So may you be a blessing and testament of endurance to those around you, because your example could be just what they need to direct them to the foot of the cross.
