Today is July 9th, 2016 and in less than 2 hours it will be the exact day and time when my life permanently an irrevocably changed. Who knows what or where I would be today if God hadn’t chosen this path for me, maybe I would be a professional in the animal world or lobbing for change for our pets; whatever I would be doing, I don’t know if I could have affected the lives that I have if I weren’t in this position. I probably would not have met most of the people I have had the opportunity to meet and my families lives may not have went in the direction that they did.

I posted a Bible verse today on my Facebook wall that is often misconstrued into something else with a totally different meaning. We often hear people say to someone who is going through a very difficult time or has been injured like me or, is forced into caring for a sick relative; God will never give you more than you can handle. Nowhere does it say that in the Bible. 1 Corinthians 10:13 says,

No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

People are going through trials everyday but that may just be God refining you in fire so you will come out on the other side polished and perfect for His purpose. Have heart and know that though you may be hurting and feel beaten, He who loves you will give you strength for He holds YOU in the palm of his hand.
