“God won’t give you any more than you can handle.” 

Odd, I can’t seem to find that verse.

I’m guessing Job would take exception to that cliche. So would Joseph. Paul did. 

“We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired of life itself.” 

Why would God call him to experience hurt more than he could handle? Read on.

 “So that we might not rely on ourselves but on God.” 

Holly Ridge Happenings

A boy asked his father, “Dad, what is the size of God?

Then the father looked up at the sky and saw a plane and asked his son. “What is the size of this plane?” 

The boy replied: “It is very small, I can hardly see it.”  

Then, the father took him to the airport and as they approached the plane, he asked, “Now, my son, how big is this plane?

 The boy replied “Wow dad, it’s huge!”

 Then the father told him “God’s size depends on how close or far you are to him. The closer you are to Him, the greater and greater He will be in you life.”

Living Garbage Free

Recently, I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the Airport. We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car pulled right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us. My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was really friendly.

 So I asked, “Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!”

How can we love others better?

This question could have many explanations depending on who we ask. But as Christians, the answer can be summed up as such: BE YOURSELF. 

The Bible says God has poured His love into us; that love is His very Spirit. We’ve been infused with love because that’s what God is, LOVE. Threre’s no need to “try” to be ourselves. It is when we forget who we are, we should quickly refocus on who we are. New, love beings.

Well, Friday was not the usual day at Thompson’s. Let me tell you, God is Good. 

When the person come into my place  and said “give me your money”, I thought he was kidding. No he wasn’t but God took care of me, God had two deputies less than three miles from me. Le me tell you, our R.P.S.O and the sheriff are great. 

The 911, the medical workers, investigators, all are wonderful. I’ll not name  names for fear I will leave one out, you know who you are and may God bless you all! I’m so thankful to God and you that I’m still alive and well!
