1 Corinthians 10:6–13 • These things were examples for us, so we won’t crave evil things like they did. Matthew 11:28–30 • “Come to me, all you who are struggling hard and carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest.
But that is a far different thing from claiming that nothing will happen to you, that you will not have to bear a burden, that you cannot bear.
Could you imagine saying to an inmate at Auschwitz, “Don’t worry; God never gives you more than you can bear!”? Or a woman whose children are killed by a long buried landmine while they were playing?  Or a refugee who surivived the massacre of her entire village?
As with all the ideas we’re looking at in this sermon series, this one has the potential to do great spiritual violence to the believer.  Because there is a great level of cognitive dissonance among the faithful, many of whom profess belief in this idea but who themselves are being crushed under their burdens.  If God never gives us more than we can bear, they think, and I am being crushed, then what is wrong with me?  What am I doing wrong?  Why isn’t God helping me? In one online forum, another pastor was taking on this exact belief and challenging it as bad theology.
I have been having a very hard time with that scripture and feeling like a failure as a christian because I felt like I am not strong enough. Our faithfulness is not demonstrated by how easily we are able to bear the burdens that come our way.  Our faith is demonstrated by our recognition that we cannot bear the burdens ourselves and trust in the grace of God who bears them with us.
But the church should be a place where you can come and say, “I have a burden that I cannot bear” and instead of being judged for having a weak faith, you are surrounded by a network of love and support that will bear that burden with you.  Just as Christ takes upon himself the burdens we cast upon him, so too do we, as the Body of Christ, take upon ourselves the burdens of those who come to us. For we are surrounded by a community of love and welcome that accepts us in our brokenness, that comforts us in our afflictions, and that stands with us in our times of need. That prompted me to find the scripture in the bible for myself, and read it with my own two eyes.
Hi Lisa, I just came across your post as I was searching the web for a different bible quote. GOD never said any of those things in the bible though… GOD never spoke to a group of people either. Today, as a retired adult education instructor, I voluntarily write and publish a small newsletter for my little community.
The only way we can be sure of the truth is to ask God to teach us what is true via His own Word. God says we must accept all of His Word, and not just part of it – the parts we LIKE.
I too suffered a near fatal spinal accident, and surgeries to turn this spine into metal from the entire Lumbars to T-10. The other perspective is the one of the suffering – Yes, it is true that the pain we have is unbearable.
I was about the most negative person you could know when I came to Christ, or more accurately, He came to me (another story).
In the past 4 years, through a court battle, illness, being homeless, dealing with an extremely dysfunctional family, a child who is very hard to care for with no help, dealing with depression, having someone lie to me and cost me dearly for their own selfish gain…. Vivian all I can say if you’re still reading and having these issues is there is NOTHING wrong with you. I tried reminding myself of starving kids in Africa with no shoes and a smile happy to be alive.
I am sure that Carmen and many, many others like her have their hearts in the right…. Some of the older members of our congregation I consider friends and yet we do disagree on certain matters.
I won’t even bother to tell you of the trials that my other daughter, my wife, or I have gone through in those 13 years or what we faced before. Scripture shows us Gideon being encouraged by God as he thought very little of himself and had resigned himself to accept all was doomed. If someone dealing with a struggle and depressed read what you wrote, do you think it would make them feel better or worse?
Her sister Charlotte is once again battling cancer, is in a wheelchair and will not likely be with us next year. I have given my list of disabilities to those that need them- the ones involved in every aspect of a person’s life.
For better or worse, cell phone technology continues to drastically change the way we do things and dating is far from immune. And just as you’ve suspected, mobile technology makes it easier for men to play the game and really get over.

I worked for a large Fitness Company which provided me with a good salary, a company car, laptop, mobile phone and a residence were i stay. My Name is isabella, I am From United Kingdom.i am hear to give testimony of how i got back my husband, we got married for more than 9 years and have gotten two kids. Hello to the Entire Public, Hello, my name is mirabel hart from texas.I came to this site to share the good works of the Native Doctor (Dr ogudu). I never believed in love,Money spells or magic until i meant this powerful spell caster when i went to Africa in December last year on a business trip. After being in relationship with emma for seven years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I agree with everything written here about modern phone technology and it’s use to be able to cheat. Its kinda sad that people find themselves in a relationship where they don’t trust the other person.
Sweet!  I was wondering how i was going to hide my affair with the babysitter from my wife.  Some of these sound PERFECT!!! I believe that these types of articles just add unnecessary fuel to an already burned out fire!! Don’t worship false gods like some of them did, as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink and they got up to play. I lost my sister to cancer and then my baby sister in a wreck and this June I lost my oldest child and everyone kept saying God would not put more on me than I could bear.
I have been chronically ill all of my adult life – longer now than when I was physically healthy (yikes, just realized that) and I heard that gunk too.
Whether this life or the next, and whether you can always believe or expect it God truly does have a good plan for you. After a 11 hour surgery that she wasn’t expected to survive she came out with a multitude of problems like most people with any kind of brain surgery do.


She has two shunts, grand mal seizures, balance issues, one leg stopped growing and she had to have surgery to add cadaver bone to lengthen it, a year later those wounds opened up again and 4 years and 2 more surgeries (31 total) later still won’t heal and stay healed.
She is an angel and a special spirit that we have been blessed to have been chosen to take care of. Scripture repeatedly says God is close to the brokenhearted, when we ARE WEAK then He is strong, He collects all our tears in a bottle. Scripture says to let no unwholesome talk come out of our mouth but only that which is helpful for building up other . The best first thing anyone can do for me, and especially in the first years of an illness that took me from my last year of under-grad (studying to be a Youth Minister, i was 22) to spending almost all of the next TWENTY YEARS in bed and in huge amounts of pain, knowing my friends were marrying and having kids and i was feeling quite useless… anyway, I needed someone to just sit and be sad with me. It used to be a guy got your number, then had to make that first nervous call to ask for a date.

I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. But, how about use normal gut instinct to decide whether your man is trustworthy, rather than searching his phone for apps like these like a paranoid jealous freak.
This is 2011, if women haven't learned by now that you should only enter relationships were you feel SECURE enough to TRUST your partner, then we are just beating a dead horse!
Let’s not practice sexual immorality, like some of them did, and twenty-three thousand died in one day. Tonight I decided to start searching to see if it was scripture and I know that God led me to your page and it has helped to take away the guilt of feeling like a bad christian because I am having such a hard time dealing with the loss of my child.
I cannot tell you how many christians told me God would not give me more than what I could handle – and how those words devastated me all the more each time they were spoken. I don’t know if you ever saw banned from the Bible on the history channel, but it tells how things have been added and things have been taken out over the years, usually to advance political purposes, thus we have the King James Bible. His core message seemed to be: God loves you as you are (right now) and not as you are supposed to be. As both myself and Brother used to say, “no one can even begin to wonder let alone know what pain is from a Spinal Surgery, or Injury, unless they too have undergone the same.
I cannot even begin to say, how important this work is, to be brought to the forefront by Rev. I’m so glad to hear that you got out from under (for lack of better word) the legalism trap and found Jesus for real. Most people, no matter how well intentioned, just have no idea about severe, long term suffering with no end in sight. Her thyroid, hypothalamus, adrenal system, and several other systems in her brain were either damaged or destroyed by the tumor.
Her brain tells her she is starving, her body is in starvation mode and turns everything to fat, she lives on 1200 calories a day and still struggles to maintain at 280 lbs. And we consider ourselves blessed when we think of some of the families we have met during our stays at the hospital. And the sooner you stop feeling sorry for yourself the sooner your Maker will start helping you. If you’re raised by loving and encouraging parents, you grow to believe you can do great things.
Since its main function is for calling, having a smartphone doesn’t raise any red flags. Between the long call logs, text messages, email and photos on a phone, smartphones can be incredibly incriminating. The company was very ‘sales driven’ and as long as I created good ‘numbers’ nothing could happen to me. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much.
If you suspect he's cheating, well hmm why not ask HIM about it, and vice versa, Men if you suspect your woman is cheating talk to her about it like civilized adults.
Instead, with the temptation, God will also supply a way out so that you will be able to endure it. I’m very ill now and drowning in medical bills while a single parent of a special needs child so I still have to maintain full time employment. Remember that Moses spent 40 years leading sheep in the desert to prepare him to lead an entire nation out of bondage. Oh they say all of us deal with stuff but let them elk one month in your shoes and see if they still have joy. I can find a hundred others that have it ten times worse than you and still have a better outlook on life than most people with no problems at all.
A few months later the tumor started growing back (they couldn’t get it all during the surgery, it was grown around her optical nerve and other sensitive spots). She was in a study shortly after her initial surgery for the hunger problem but the study was discontinued after 6 months. Families that have lost their children, often more than one, lost their homes, careers (as my wife and I did), financial security, their own health because of the strain, even their marriages. Yet she obtained a bachelor’s in social work, developed and ran programs for disabled people, visited all 7 continents.
Years ago your average player owned a small stack of paper, bound with glue, called a black book.
But making sales meant that the people who already joined our clubs didn’t get the attention they needed, and left. The universal Christian nation, as it were, has gotten a lot better at listening to one another and accepting their differences, much better than have the muslim sects (just to point a finger unjustly). Meaning that man has defiled the notion of God into a little, uncaring, legalistic person – full of retribution. I still don’t understand if you were referring to me though, me and GOD have always had a great relationship. 3 years after his death so young, and raised by Me due to our parents divorcing early in his life, He was not only a Sacred Brother but also my Son it still feels like, best friend too. This IS the work we are meant to bring forward, with our physical issues, to those who continue on in life, thinking the Gospel Mythos is real.
She went through 5 weeks of 5 day a week radiation therapy which reduced the tumor but caused other damage. We asked why and were told that she was the only survivor, all the other kids had eaten themselves to death.


While it allowed men to record details on his sexual exploits, it was an extraneous accessory that anyone could be privy to with a glance. I preferred to embrace the existing members instead of the stress of gaining enough new members.
Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there.
These things happened to them as an example and were written as a warning for us to whom the end of time has come. What some if us go through with God’s help would send most to drugs to dull the pain or to end it all.
And what you basically said was you’re going through all of these bad things but you would praise Him regardless of the storm.
Yet she also battled illness after illness, which finally took her home in March at just 55. Yes, when I was, on that night, beyond what I could bear there was a person with experience with ASD there, and the minister present was able to manage it calmly. To make a long story short, I wasn’t useful for the company anymore (although my clubs gained profit month after month) so I got kicked out of the company in a very bad way.
If God is slow to provide revelation I can only do that which I know to be right and know that He knows my heart. She is developmentally disabled and operates at about an 8 year old level most times but cannot be left alone with food or money or she will buy food.
But do you know how many times in the last 35 years before I was diagnosed I was not helped?
Get smart, get connected, get hip and if he cheats on you and you are being true to him then DUMP him. Very few I’ve met in my 60 years, have no clue what all this means, and herein layeth the work, done eloquently and directly to the issue and point. Due to comments very much like yous I was guilted into trying so that I made myself sicker. I respect you for that because majority of the post that are up here are agreeing that God will put more on you than you can bare and that the troubles that they have are too much for them and talking about How bad they feel and like o, when is this pain going to end.
The next morning I got up, I brought my mother her pills, I brought her her food, pulled her into a sitting position- she can grip my hand as I do that, nothing more. I thought to myself i am good at what i do any i can get a spot at another company but i was wrong every interview i went for all i heard them say was that i am too old to make the number of sales that will be required that they needed younger and vibrant person.
Nobody will watch her after the 1st time because of the food issue and it’s just too hard because she is desperate for food.
She gets an $8500 injection each month for it’s side effect as an appetite suppressant which helps a little for about 3 weeks.
She can’t tell if I am sick or well, and I have collapsed while coughing without her noticing, and my 20-lb dog was the only reason I got up more than once, and I have no one to call.
I had my family to care for my part time work was not doing it for me i knew i needed a job with go pay it was the only way out of the mess i was in. I think people keep forgetting that when Jesus died that their life doesn’t belong to them anymore and if you truly give yourself to Him. My wife has a traumatic brain injury, is bi-polar, psysho-effective disorder, agoraphobic, has panic attics, and half a dozen other diagnoses.
I came across an article on the Internet were some one was talking about how he got the job he lost back and that a spell caster called Akpe Osilama helped them casted a spell that get him is job back. The scheduling it took for me to be in that youth center with my church group was astounding, my being well enough that night was as well. Honestly it sounded crazy to me and impossible because i did not even believe in all those kind of stuff.
But things began to go bad i was always fighting with my wife over silly things and i was not getting call from any company no body wanted me. And was helping her during each of the 10 documented illnesses I had last winter, and during my current illness.
Out of desperation i contact the spell caster with hopes that some how some way i was going to get something out of it . I just want to say this, world is bigger that we all think there are forces and power we can not explain i say this because Akpe Osilama got me back my job and also made me the assistance sales manager of that same fitness Company that fired me.
He did not ask me to pay anything for the spell he did for me which was surprising but he told me those who gave him the power did not ask anything of him so he is just trying to help helpless as much as he can. However i was to get some materials that was going to be used for spell but i asked him to get them for me with the total cost i sent to him because if i was to get them myself i would have broken some laws and gotten into trouble. Maybe He doesn’t heal me but He has turned around situations in my job, finances, housing. And never was asked to study with a classmate or get a cup of coffee after class or on a date.
Just after he finish the spell he sent me a package with instructions on how to use make it effective. Just after 24 hours the CEO of the company came personally to my house asking me to come and work for the company again and promising to increase my salary and making me the assistance sales manager. My birthday was never in the announcements, because no one called in- it was like radio dedications. Until last year, soon after my birthday, there was no phone number in my cell that wasn’t a (physically) distant relative or a business. Call me a fool or anything you please i do not regret contacting the spell caster for help my advice, do the same using this as contact medium { chiefpriestakpeosilamaspellcast at yahoo dot com } this is a spelled out email address convert to email address format. PLEASE ALL OUT THERE THAT WISH TO USE THE SERVICES OF THIS GREAT SPELL CASTER CALLED AKPE OSILAMA, BEWARE OF SOME PEOPLE THAT MIGHT COPY THIS COMMENT AND CHANGE JUST ONLY THE NAME OF THIS SPELL CASTER AND HIS MAILING ADDRESS. In high school and college I was absolutely ignored, and after the 2nd year of college was ill to where half-time classes and homework were all I had strength for. I have a list of reasons that I cannot work and why Dad retired a year earlier than he had planned, at least, for us. BE ORIGINAL AND NOTE THAT THERE ARE SEVERAL PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT ARE NOT REAL SPELL CASTER APART FROM AKPE OSILAMA THAT HELPED ME, I CAN BOLDLY SAY THE REST ARE CON ARTIST AS IT WAS ONLY AKPE THAT HELPED ME. I AM TRYING TO EMPHASIS ON THIS BASE ON THE FACT THAT I DONT WANT YOU THAT NEED HELP TO FALL INTO THE WRONG HANDS.
