Bend, and Up, Bend, and Up….

Have you ever said to yourself, “I don’t know how much more I can take!” I believe we all have at one time or another. And possibly many more times throughout the rest of our lives will these words pass through our lips.

Troubles on every side, financial, marital, school related, employment related, make us want to give up and give in. Pressure like that of a covered pot of boiling water creeps in and all of a sudden we find ourselves overwhelmed.

We feel like we’ve fallen and we can’t get up!

Never is on the way! 1 Corinthians 10:13, The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.

Don’t be tempted to compromise your faith in God to resolve what you’re struggling with. Believe in God’s plans and be flexible with His timing. He knows what’s best for us.

You won’t break if you’re strong enough to bend.
