Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.

The Accidental Expert, over at Raising Complicated Kids complains, and rightly so,
"Whoever said 'God only gives you what you can handle' has clearly never stepped foot in my house.  If they had, they would have just shut up.  At least I wish they would."  
When someone says that God won't give me more than I can handle, I look them in the eye and say, "I believe God does give me more than I can handle, and He does it intentionally." I let them squirm a minute, and then explain, "Because if He didn't, why would I need Him?"

I say that to people all the time... except you are much nicer about it.

People say that to me and my first response is "That is a lie straight from the pit of hell!" ;o) Then I gently explain why.

Anyone that has every been through anything knows He gives us more than we can handle every single day!

Maybe it would be better to say that God won't give us any problems HE can't handle.

Amy Lu, when are you going to start blogging again?

It should also be noted that God seems to have a pretty sick sense of humor.

@Big Daddy, if by sick you mean ironic, I would have to agree!

Amen! So true. I have often given the same answer and you're absolutely right, the people who say that have not walked in your shoes!
