Does God give us more than we can handle?

Last Sunday, the leader of my Sunday School class brought forth a discussion about why our God allows bad things to happen?  We discussed tragic events in our own community… young mothers killed, teenagers dying in accidents….and we had the Boston marathon bombing and the explosions in West, Texas on our minds as well.  We studied scripture, discussed, asked more questions, and ended in prayer for those who are suffering.  I have learned to embrace suffering in the last few years.  I do not like to suffer or see those I love suffer, but it has opened my heart to God and his power.  And I know that through my weakness Christ’s power is made perfect.  When I am weak, he is strongest.

Today a friend posted the link below on Facebook.  I felt compelled to share.
