My Dad's favorite thing to tell me, when i was at my lowest. But i'm not so sure i can believe it anymore. I've struggled all my life, single mom,no child support, started & lost business, lost loves,ect...when i thought i'd lost everything, i found out how much more i had to lose!!Know every moments a struggle,lonely, sometimes feel like a bug under his thumb.

When I was younger and raising my three children by myself I often found myself lonely and definitely struggling. It was not my father would say things like "God never gives you more than we can handle." Rather in my family it was my stepmother. Today I realized that she really didn't even know who God is the lone try and tell me about Him. I believe that God never gives us more than he is willing to help us go through. In fact I believe that like "footprints in the sand" he carried me when I thought I was dying from the loneliness and the things that life kept kicking me with. Now I enjoy, I really enjoy, telling her things like "if you don't learn how to forgive your not going to find forgiveness either" I don't think that's in the Bible either but it sounds good. I'm not sure I understand what you mean by Truth? Or Dare? But if you ever need someone to talk to I'm here.

I have always said that but I'm beginning not to believe it. I've always felt like God just dangles me over a pit of fire...
