Have you ever come across a popular saying and thought to yourself, “Hmmm…that doesn’t sound right.” That’s happened to me several times over my life. Some of them I had said myself previously, believing them to be true. There are even popular Christian sayings that are not grounded in truth – like “God wants me to be happy” (No, He wants you to be holy, which has nothing to do with your happiness a lot of the time. Or how about, “If you feel far from God, guess who moved?” The truth is that sometimes we just feel far from God because He wants our faith and trust in Him to grow and deepen. Then there is the ever popular, “God won’t give you more than you can handle”.
Well, yes He will because He doesn’t want us to rely on ourselves. He wants us to be fully and complete dependent on Him for our very breath. And if we can handle the problems of life just fine on our own, then we don’t need Him. These aren’t even found in scripture! So, when I read Fearless Daughter’s post, I knew I had to feature it because I saw how she turned a quippy saying into a true saying. I loved it! Plus, she is a teenage young woman, and nothing delights my heart more than to see Godly young women living for God. So, I want to encourage her in her writing and passion for God.
