Day 25: Favorite Quotation

God would never give you anything you couldn't handle.
I've had my fair share of hardships in my life, and I know I never would have been able to push through the obstacles without trusting God. I may not be the most religious person in the world, but at the end of the day I know what I believe, and I know God is always there for me. One time in particular, over this past Christmas I was incredibly sick and in so much pain that I couldn't sleep. At three o'clock Christmas morning my mom had to take me to the hospital because I was so miserable. I remember slowly walking out of the hospital an hour and a half later, tears running down my face, and thinking, "How the hell could this happen to me? What did I do to deserve this." But as soon as I sat in the car I thought, "I will be okay. God knows I can deal with this. He wouldn't have let this happen if He didn't think I could handle it." And suddenly I felt better. I saw the light in what anyone would consider an awful situation. And here I am, six months later and I'm just fine.

God doesn't give us difficulties because He thinks we "deserve" them. He's only testing us and our faith in Him and in ourselves. And He would never give us a test that He thought we would fail. This quotation is a constant reminder to myself to be strong and to keep pushing forward no matter what the world throws at me. With God I can do all things. All I have to do is trust Him.

And I'm not saying this because I'm trying to sway the non-believers. I really don't care what other people believe. It's not my business. But even if you don't believe in God, it's still a good saying to keep in mind. Life is never as hard as you think it is. You can handle anything given to you so long as you don't give up.
