God has an incredibly unfathomable and intricate sense of humor. For the majority of my adolescent and early adult years (okay, let’s get real, until like last month), I resented the Bible verse, “God only gives you as much as you can handle.” It’s in Corinthians, and this is my personal spark notes version of it, so bear with me.
This verse caused me angst and woe to a detrimental degree. “Who the F are you, God, to arbitrarily designate me as capable of struggling through some of this intense, and seriously uncalled for bullshit?” I’d ask incessantly, and go on to shake my little and ineffectual fists in the air. “You’ve given and keep giving me too much for me to handle, it’s too heavy for me to carry” I’d cry.
For those of you that know me personally as close friends, you know that I have been through hell and back in more ways than one, and many more times than once. I’ve made mistakes, failed, and did damage some more. One day, I’m going to share that full story with the world - not because this is about me, but because this is about you. This is a message about all of us in this life, whatever your battles and demons may be. If I can promise anything, it’s that you are not alone.
The funny thing is, God gives everyone shit to deal with. Yet, he also gives us a choice. He waits. You can sit there throwing some bullshit tantrum that renders you useless, you can stop giving a shit entirely and be bitter at the world instead (it’s hurt people that hurt people), OR, you can literally take the first steps to deal with your shit and let go to let God.
I may be just a nobody that knows nothing about life, success or about God, but I do know this: everything changes the moment you decide to take a chance on and have faith in yourself and your purpose in this hell of a journey called life. This becomes the moment that the joke is no longer on you, and you get to be the one laughing about it instead. I want this to be me. Let this be you, too. ❤️
