Something that people often say when you are going through a hard time is, “God won’t give you more than you can handle.”

But is that true? All over the Bible we see people getting far more than they can handle – people like Noah, Moses, and Job. Even Jesus in Gethsemane (and on the cross) struggled with the weight of his mission and suffering. 

At some point, life will throw more at us than we can handle. The good news is that God helps us to handle more than we knew possible. 

The overwhelmed and overstretched are under the mercy of Christ.

P.S. Here is the link to Simon Sinek’s excellent book Start With Why that Drew references in the sermon. He also has a great TED Talk here.
