It's a Hot Topic Tuesday...Our Inspiring Quote of the Day says...
"God doesn't give us what we can handle, but God helps us handle what we are given."
I spoke briefly on the show about my tooth incident over the weekend, and if asked last week if I could handle the pain I would have said no. But after having gone through it I did, but it was God that helped me handle it. I tried everything to get the pain to stop, I prayed, laid hands on my face, tried medicine, home remedies but it was something I just had to endure until I was able to get to the dentist. But even though I prayed and nothing happened right away, my prayers were answered in that God gave me the strength to keep going. Time seemed to stand still on nights where I couldn't sleep, I couldn't get comfortable, my wife couldn't help me but God...so just be encouraged today that sometimes our going through is the answered prayer, we feel like God please take this and he's saying no go through it and I'll be with you.
I made a joke to my wife about knowing how Jesus felt in the garden of Gethsemane by saying everyone was sleep while I was up...you all were supposed to up with me, see Jesus they did me just like they did you...LOL! But truth is, it was for me to go through with God and with God only. Find the strength you need in those moments to focus on him and press through!
