It can be so easy to crumble when things get tough... but a tough situation can also make us crispy... stronger. Responsibilities, challenges, stresses, pressures. It says in the Bible that God does not give us more than we can handle. I think that when things are a little too big for us to handle on our own, then that's where others can come along to hold our hand.
In writing this post, I'm thinking of a lot of people who may feel a little crumbly these days, and with good reason. There's a friend of mine who's waiting through some very difficult and question filled tests... there's the family of the 14 year old boy at my daughters' campus who recently passed away from cancer... and there's my mom who's embarking on a journey that will change her.
I trust that God will continue to make me the person I need to be for her through the next few months... crispy and not crumbly.
