Knowing that God does not test beyond your limits or capacity never really has brought me comfort. Repeating this knowledge over and over by quietly mouthing the words did nothing to internalize this truth. Perhaps I did not exercise patience, but I have found an effect, relatively quick fix for stress. It sounds trite, but I count my blessings. I focus on all the good in my life. During challenging and painful times my altered thinking spreads a healing balm to many wounds. I am grateful that I have come to understand this knowledge.
