No testing has overtaken you that is not common to everyone. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tested beyond your strength, but . . . will also provide the way out so that you may be able to endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NRSV)
Many people who are trying to comfort someone experiencing tragedy say, “God never gives us more than we can handle.” But this can backfire, making the sufferer feel worse. They may say: “If God is sending me these crises because I’m so strong, then I don’t want to be strong.”...
When life is too hard, God will provide a way through.
Someone needing comfort
Respond by posting a prayer.
While several strategies for reopening the world are being discussed, I encourage you—the people of God everywhere—to allow this season to be a formative one during which you can make new discoveries about God and increase your faith. Use this time to embark on a life of prayer, a life of study, and a life of action—involvement in the community.”
