Is it true the lord only puts on your plate what you can eat?

by Cassie (Rhode Island)

So many years an old wise lady beloved to me said the lord only give you what he knows ur capable of dealing with. my question always was and always has been when does the plate empty cause i am full. i know there are people out there with far worst and bigger servings. i have asked for forgiveness but i dont feel that i have ever done anything that calls for punishment.

I dont believe he is punishing me but i just dont understand. i pray to my lord and thank him everynight for what he has blessed my child and me with. i hold him dear and high. i know he is here maybe i just ask too much of him. so i pray lord jesus continue to carry me thru and please remove all negativity that stands in my way. dear god thank you for loving me and those beside me.. also help others who feel like me. amen

  2. Still Lost and Confuse.

    I definitely feel the same way many times. and I ask myself when will it end. I’ve been thru so much that I feel like I can write a book about my life and the things that I’ve gone thru and still am. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt the Lord maybe it’s because Iv\’ve stop looking for him. I’m so lost and confuse.

  3. Ask our lord

    People think god is putting so much on there plate.
    I to have been through the worst 6 months of my life.
    I prayed to our lord and asked him to Proov to me that he is with me. As I prayed I was looking up at the stars and I asked The Lord to help me find my path, show me your with me. Well as I spoke with our lord and prayed to him to give me a sign looking up at the sky. A shooting star shot across the sky.
    I could feel him I was so close. My point is ask him to Proov he is with u and he will. I also had, on the very next day one of the best I’ve had in along time. So thank u in Jesus name amen.
    Try it and have faith and he will Proov to u he is with.
    Good luck my friends I have never felt so close to our lord as when I asked him to make me see. Promise he will answer !!

  4. Please lord I need my son

    Please show me away to get close to my son that says he hates me with. Every little once of hate he has in him. I’m praying to you lord to let him see how much I love him and never will I stop loving him. I ask you lord to please give me a sign or letting him come and make peace with me before I’m in your arms. Please lord hear my prayers I love him more then anyone. Please help me my shoulders are getting weak amen

  5. Alone again naturally

    I have been without a life partner for many years. I am in my 60’s and now have health issues. Although I’m not helpless, I’ve moved in with my daughter and her husband in another state. I thought it would be a new chapter in my life. When they go to the beach, I always wind up sitting alone while they surf or fish. Alone with my thoughts and watching couples walk by makes me feel lonely. I miss my son. I miss the laughter he brought into my life when I lived near him. I miss our road trips to state parks. I even miss my apartment. (my little shoe box i used to call it) I have prayed for a life partner, spoken and unspoken, but I’m still alone. I can’t help but wonder why since Genesis 2:18 states, ‘It’s not for man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.’ I’m grateful that my daughter wants to help me but she nor my son should be doing what a good, decent, loving, God-fearing life partner should be doing .. but where is he?
