Able, Not Easy

I’ve been working on a new book — all about boys. (SUPER fun.) While writing this week, I remembered something God taught me last summer…and have been pondering it ever since.

When God gives us something difficult to do, usually He doesn’t make it easier. Instead He makes us able.

ImageAt the time, it was moving day, and I was squishing a giant mattress into the back of my car (by myself). That’s difficult.

Quitting your job to travel on a homemade tour is difficult.

Not getting mad about your car being hit is difficult.

Singleness is difficult.

Choosing faith over fear is difficult.

But when God allows something difficult in our lives, instead of making it easier, He makes us able. We find that He is strong enough.

What difficult places are you facing? Thank Him that He is able.
