I just posted this on my FB page and it's something I truly believe:
I think we, as people, don't give ourselves enough credit. We are ALL stronger than we think we are. We have to endure and deal with things we never thought possible. I think each and every one of us can think of a time in our lives (past or present) that we thought prior to that situation that we couldn't get through that...... and we DID. However, I do believe God does give us more than we can handle, plenty of people have taken their lives because they couldn't handle it and that doesn't make them weak. So I say we all give ourselves a pat on the back and take CREDIT for what we are doing/done that we never thought possible. Sure, God can give us strength but unless we are capable of USING that strength, it's worthless. It's like someone trying to lose weight. They can have a private gym, a food coach, etc... but unless we do it OURSELVES it's worthless.
