Really God?

It's been a while since I have blogged. Life has been chaotic. It seems the last few months me, our family and extended family have had our fair share of issues going on. Lately, and I don't say this lightly, I have been a little  overwhelmed by all that has been going on. I am not one who is easily overwhelmed but I feel like I am being pulled apart bit by bit.
I have always believed that God will never give us more than we can handle but I am ashamed to admit that I told God  that I believe my quota is full now! But deep down in my heart I knew that wasn't true. He is a good and faithful God. His intent is not to hurt us but to help us, not to overwhelm us, but to teach us, not to crush us,   but to build us up. And always to love us!
So even though I have those moment's when I think to myself  "really God?" I know that right around the corner He has something amazing in store for me and that makes everything I am going through worth it!

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Proverbs  3:5
