God Cant Give You More Than You Can Handle?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

This is a conversation i just had with my cousin whose mom was killed last night. 

Me and her were talking cuz she also lost her uncle 1 month and 1 day ago.  And a few years ago she lost ehr brother to suicide. 


So as we were talking she tells me  "god wouldnt give you anymore than you can handle". and this is my response

me: i would agree with that but i cant

her: ?

me: if you think about life. if people could handle what was given to them, why do some commit suicide? Why do some of them turn to drugs? Alcohol? Now not everyone turns to this stuff when faced with hard times, but there are alot that do and they dont come back. does that make sense?

her: Yeah I can understand where your coming from

me: there are people who can handle it but then there are people who cant. If people do take the time to stop and think about what they are going through and sit down and breathe then maybe yes. but not everyone can do that. Also there are those people who are going through so much and people do say "god wouldnt give you anymore than you can handle" but im reality yes he would. trial and tribulation. its his way of seeing what you can and cant handle and if you are strong enough to "come back" from it so to speak. And when someone is going through alot, really the last thing they probably want to hear is "god wouldnt give you anymore than you can handle", and i say this because (and i am not a christian but i do believe in higher powers, no one knows what they are thinking or what they have planned for someone in this life or the next life. does that make sense?

her: Yeah I see what your saying

me: i think you are the first one who does.  lol

her: Lol. Really?

me: yea really

her: Oh wow

me: im friends with alot of Christians(and i have no problem with the christian religion mind you) but alot of christians dont want to see anything from a different point of view. Not all christians are like that but alot that i have come across are

her: yeah i know what you meanl

I'm Christian and it never says that in the bible.  Also I don't believe it, what is the point of faith if you can handle everything on your own?

I find it odd that you even "debated" the issue with her. At that moment what ever provided her comfort should have been enough.

i agree with what you said

also, lets look at the moms who have lost kids. why would god want them to handle that? to give someone a child, say they are sacred, yet take them so soon?

no parent should have to bury a child, it's not natural.

Life is hard even when you're a Christian. It's
Endurance that God gives to us when we lean on Him.

actually no my cousin died cuz he didnt get the help he needed when he needed it in the first place. even my cousin has said that and said that to her mother. 

Do not assume to know what it is i am saying. He couldnt handle what was being thrown at him, cuz he didnt have anyone there for him when he needed it. he felt alone. 

she is dealing with her. she has even stated her mother is better off, cuz she is not around to hurt herself or anyone else.   but hey like with another one, ignorance is apart of life. one most people grow out of. i hope you grow out of it.

based on your cousins responses it sounds like she just didn't want to engage in this conversation with you....

hoe do u have this conversation with someone the night of her mothers death when she is trying her best to deal with it.

you basically said her brother died because he couldnt handle life...

you sound like a bitch to me

i'm far from ignorant honey

but who are you to discount how your cousin feels....

if she said god won't give her more than she can handle who are you to tell her that is wrong
