When You Can’t Handle Anymore

I can’t count the number of times I have broken down over various life events.  The brutal death of my daughter, my husband’s cancers, near-successful suicide attempts by one of my sons, and most recently the deaths of many of my much loved people happening so quickly and close together.

“I can’t handle this!  I just can’t handle this anymore, Lord.” I sob out desperately.

It’s only been recently that I’ve learned that is the most blessed place to be.

Ironic, huh?

I’m learning that when I can’t handle things - Jesus can - and will.

You see, I’ve gotten through each thing mentioned above.  Definitely not gracefully nor in good form - but I’ve made it through.

Correction:  Jesus got me through.

I need to keep that in the forefront of my mind: When I can’t handle it anymore - Jesus can. In fact, even trying to handle things on my own is nothing short of foolish.

This YouTube song was sent out on the encouragement message list my family has put together.  I listened to it.  I bought it.  And I play it.  Frequently.

I’m putting together a playlist of songs for the times I really need encouragement - and this one is one I’m listening to over and over.

My favorite line?

“Never underestimate my Jesus.”
